|1985, Wess and I are prepping our newly acquired|
treasure for long term storage while we went to college.
|1998, My daughter is 6 in the photo, |
yes I used to drive it like this, without the fins.
|1999, Phase I, Body work and bonding layer|
before paint. There was a cut-out in the
hood that had to be patched and the hood
had flown up on me once while driving so,
there were creases at the joints.
I found a shop in Oregon City that restored only Mustangs, and asked Gary if he would squeeze me in during a slow period. I had to move my car in and out of his shop during body work and paint layers and let it cure in my garage so it didn't get in the way of his precious mustangs, but WOW, he gave my Silver Hawk all the respect any Mustang owner would have gotten. And as we all know, Studebaker invented the "Pony Car" not Ford.
|1999, Wet paint. After Gary had finished I had some soul searching|
to do. This car deserved more respect than I had been giving it. ( I know the photos digital date is '94, but that is incorrect in the camera)
