I just read through this thread for the first time. At first I thought you "buddy next door" was just a car collector with a couple of gems. As I read and saw more and more pictures, I thought "he must live next to Jay Leno!" It wasn't until halfway through the thread I realized it must be some sort of business, a restoration or performance shop.

My friend is a class A wrench and does resto's but he is the best front end man on this side of the state. He moved in to a bigger shop where we have a car and bike club meeting every Friday.
Today this car got some hand painted pin strips.
