“Twas the night before Christmas and in the garage, there wasn’t a trace of a Ford or Dodge. The presents were wrapped and the lights were all lit, so I figured I’d mess with the Vette a bit. I popped the release and lifted the hood, when a deep voice behind me said “Looks pretty good!” Well, as you can imagine, I turned mighty quick and there by the workbench stood Ol’ Saint Nick! We stood there a bit, not to sure what to say. Then he said “Don’t suppose you’d trade for my sleigh?” I said “No way, Santa” and started to grin, “But if you’ve got the time we could go for a spin!” His little round mouth, all tied up like a bow, turned to a smile and he said “Let’s go!” So as not to disturb all the neighbors’ retreat, we pushed the Vette quietly into the street. Then, taking our places to drift down the hill, I turned the key and let the clutch spill. The sound that erupted took him by surprise, but he liked it alot, by the look in his eyes. With the Goodyear’s a’ cryin’ and the side pipes aglow, we headed on our where the hot rodders go. Santa’s grin widened, approaching his ears, with every shift up as I went through the gears. He yelled “I can’t recall when I’ve felt so alive!” So I backed off the gas and said, “Do you wanna drive?” Ol’ Santa was stunned when I gave him the keys, when he walked past the headlights, he shook at the knees. Then the big block exploded with side exhaust sound! Santa let out the clutch and the tires shook the ground! Power shift into second, again into third! I sat there just watching, at loss for a word. Then I heard him exclaim as we blasted from sight, “Merry Christmas to all, it’s a great night!!”


 

Everybody has been talking about the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train that has been spotted all over the country. Check out this video from a YouTuber in which he got some excellent night time shots of the train using his drone!!

 

 


 1963 Corvette RestoMod

The RestoMod is making progress by leaps and bounds! After finishing up some final sanding and masking off the body, the guys pushed her into the paint booth for an application of sealer. While they were working on the body, Ed started to mount the new tires on the wheels that had just arrived.

BARE TO BASE

Once the sealer was applied, they started to mask her off for the first coat of base!
TORCH RED! 
Corey and Tyler applied 2 coats of base on the entire body with Steve’s assistance. 

With the base coats applied, the next step is to apply the clear. Corey applied the clear coat while Tyler mixed and Steve assisted.


With the clear coat applied, they left it to dry over the weekend. First thing Monday morning, they started to wet sand the new finish.

After wet sanding the entire body, they started to buff and polish the new finish with rubbing compound and the buffing wheel. The owner stopped by the check on the progress and show us the custom LED taillights that he ordered. They should look awesome in this beautiful project.


1960 Corvette

Last week Ed disassembled the convertible top frame for the 1960 Corvette and Mark got to work on sandblasting and refinishing the pieces. After Mark was finished, Ed got to work reassembling the convertible top frame. After it was assembled, he installed it onto the vehicle for a test fit.
