You guys are all showing your age!! (ya youngin's) The Earl first started out "Paint any car most any color for $29.00" and they did! It was a liquid plastic coating that they sprayed on the car (one coat), dried in minutes, after wiping it down with prep sol or thinner. There masking was horrible. We use to have a crew that detailed them after they were painted. We had them paint every used car on our lot, they charged us twenty bucks a car, volume discount, It was cheeper and easier than cleaning and touching them up and lasted just about as long.
As for MAACO the initials stands for Anthony A Martino Co. which is the business he went into after he sold the franchise rites etc. to another bus. he started in his garage at home. His initials were in the name of that co. too. Anthony A. Martino Co. (AAMCO)
Some shops actully do a decent job, though they are rare.
