It's so funny, right as I finished the last post my boss came up to me and handed me a new digital camera, man how things are different.

Oh, and Henry, there were no hotrods, this was a restoration shop. There were only two hot rods we ever had in the shop, a fiberglass Model A coupe (must have been the first one!) was a 35 Chevy, I don't even remember what we did to it. I didn't touch the Model A as it got painted elsewhere. The Chevy I remember having all the wood replaced with metal and it was MASTERFUL! The owner did it, and it was a piece of friggin art! It was as shame to cover it with upholstery.

Nope, it was all restorations, early Ford V8 restorations mostly.
