This could go on forever. The fact is that I have never seen a perfect car! Everyone can talk about perfection and detail all they want. The important thing is that the owner is happy with it!

I know of a truck in this area that has one of the ugliest paint jobs I have seen. The orange peel should make Florida happy. It has flames painted over the peel. The body work looks like it was done by a blind guy with no seeing eye dog. The guy that owns it thinks he has a real gem. That's what matters, not what I think of it!

Unfortunately, as Barry pointed out, it is unlikely that someone like me could even compete in the BIG shows anymore. My customers are happy with the work, and show it off all the time. As long as they are happy, I am almost happy.
