A dog BREAD? Is that sliced or unsliced?

(I crack me up)

I saw a Hackney (brand) truck body on something just today , at a traffic light

Hackney started out making carriages & taxicabs WAY back when "self-propelled carriages" (auto-mobile) were unheard of. Hence the term "hack" for a cab!

I googled the question but all I see is a bunch of Ziebart info and some waxes. Surely it's not that easy?

Rust preventive? well, since someone else already Googled it (and should get credit if that's the answer):

What does Diamond Gloss really protect your exterior paint from? It protects your vehicle from just about anything nature can throw at it!

Acid Rain
Damaging UV Rays
Salt
Water Spotting
Bird Droppings
Pollution
Bug Splatters
Tree Sap
Mud, Dirt and Sand

Brian I'm very disappointed in you. It's gonna kill you when I give up the answer. Here's a clue. "I'll Paint any car for $29.95!"
He had shops in 23 states and four countries. The Diamond Gloss paint job was $49.95

That's him! Hundreds of company owned paint and body shop all over the United States and three other foreign countries. One of the early TV advertisers. His famous spiel was " I'll paint any car for $29.99. No ups, no downs!" He had his own paints made and the Diamond Gloss was his top of the line paint. Each painter was expected to shoot five cars a day. If you were smart you pulled all the trim off your car yourself. Masking was a little iffy! There is still a Earl Scheib shop in Sacramento!

I guess the company went belly up and the shops somehow kept the names but are privately owned with no connection to the original company or owners, very odd.

This is ALL their web site is says.

Effective July 16, 2010, Earl Scheib, Inc. has ceased operations nationwide. Each store is now independently owned and operated by a person unaffiliated with Earl Scheib, Inc. Based on this change, customer warranties of Earl Scheib, Inc. will no longer be able to be honored at these stores or by Earl Scheib, Inc. We truly apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, however we believe the independent owners and operators will continue to provide the same great service that Earl Scheib, Inc. offered for almost 80 years.

http://www.earlscheib.com/

I always wonder how you sell such poor work, as a salesmen your goal is to meet or exceed your customers expectations. How can you look someone in the eye and tell sell them on a new Cadillac and then drive out and hand them the keys to a worn out 1985 Hyundai? How do you set someone up for what they are going to see when the car is done? I remember driving past the Hayward shop with cars out front masked in newspaper! I was 20 and shooting cars in my garage and I wouldn't do that!

Anyway, yep, Earl Sheib, the butt of many automotive related jokes.

Ok, 1965 Nova with a 283, what was different about that block? There were two distinct differences from any other small block motor ever made. I remember pulling the motor out of my buddies car and noticing this and wondering why in the heck did they go thru such trouble when we just put a 350 in the same spot and it didn't need these mods.
