Re: Another cool car trend
My '65 Nova is very solid, but has a lot of wavy panels from when 16-yr old me tried to do body work in 1988. It is covered with a cheap Ermine White Acrylic Enamel paint job, done at home in a single car garage back in '88. It has some rust bubbles popping through here and there. The interior is nice, and the engine compartment is detailed.
For years I really wanted to re-do the car and make it "nice". I've changed my mind recently. It's fine as-is.
It won't win any car shows, but I have fun with it, and it still turns heads. There is no reason to sink a ton of cash into paint and body work, and have it stranded in "paint jail" when I can be driving it!
