    Great looking 71 SS, welcome to the club!
    My friend had a tan 71 SS, but it was T Boned and totaled in 1977.

    My SS finally got painted.  Going back to the original color - Nevada Silver (with a bit of blue pearl).  A friend had a booth so off it went to get final paint.  It comes back home this weekend.

    I was searching Word Press for any Monte Carlo stories and found this from Ernie Webb.
    Very nice story.

    If he would write down what he adds and how much there should be no problem but the amounts added need to be exact.

    We have a gal at our Axalta distributor that can tint it to match just about any color. She is amazing and always keep track of what is added so if you need more they can still get a perfect match.

    Put the bearings/seals/Strange Axles in the rear diff & painted more parts today. Near the end I realized this is about it for the bulk of the dirty, crappy, cleaning part of the job. Still need to paint the interior parts, but it's certainly much lighter and easier to work with.
    Ordered the paint today from a place in NJ called Kolor Korrect. Maybe I'm picky, but trying to find a good match for '72 Dark Saddle hasn't been easy. The mix the PPG dealer made up just didn't cut it. DuPont (Axalta)didn't have anything & would have been a 'mad scientist' mix. SEM has too generic colors. Tried a can from the Parts Place that they "had made especially for them" -M42...it was so far off, Ray Charles could have felt that it was bad. Called Legendary Interiors to see what they use. They sent me to the above, apparently they work pretty close with them. KK sent a couple of sprayouts, still was a little off. Then they called Legendary again and found out the dye lot for my fabric was a new batch, so they mixed some up to match what Legendary now has for their upholstery. That was just about perfect to the seats now & a good match to the existing hard parts, so it should be here next week. Really impressed with the customer service and degree of effort they put in to get me a perfect match, almost unheard of these days.

    stangeba reacted to Rob Peters in Eastern Meet Milestone   
    Today we hit a milestone on Eastern Meet club registrations.  As of today I have 60... Yes SIXTY...  That is 60.... or SIX-ZERO First Gen Monte's registered with me for he 2020 Eastern Meet.  We all know that sometimes things come up and someone has a family emergency that prevents them from attending a meet but to have this many cars already registered with me for an Eastern Meet that is STILL 8 1/2 months away is way more than we could have expected.  Keep those registrations coming.  
    Can you imagine seeing this many First Gen Monte' converging on the Carlisle Events show field????   I want to thank everyone in the club who is promoting this event.  Keep up the GREAT work.  I had hoped to have just over 50 first gen's by June of next year but to have 60 already is beyond expectations.  Should we now shoot for 70 or dare I say 80.   
    I am going to have to buy more name badge holders and lanyards at this rate.... but that is a good thing.  Can you imagine bench racing of over 100 people when you include all the members and their guests, well we are already way over that.  Again, I thank everyone who is helping to promote this and keep up the good work.

    Well, finally got my 70 SS out. Have owned this one for a little over 4yrs. Bought as a roller. My son, brother and I have worked on her alot in the beginning. 
    She has been sitting in a garage for 2yrs. Shame on me! 
    Finally took her to a show today, her first. Heard rumors that over 700 cars were there.  5 first gens including mine. Most I have ever seen at a show in my area. 
    Spoke to the owners about the club. They said they would check it out. We shall see. 
    They gave out 50 trophy's. No 1st, 2nd or 3rd. Just 50 trophy's. Well my 70 SS WON  one in it's very first show! Lol

    Semi-shiny and black. Almost ready to go back to work to relax after the last couple of 80+ hour weeks. Wanted to get the frame & suspension broke down and painted but all this other stuff needed done eventually, so that's how it played out. Probably move some cars around tomorrow and start to clean up the pig pen of a shop and then start on the frame.

    Took my Model A Ford Tudor Sedan to the Greentree Boro Octoberfest today with our grandchildren Emily and Ryan.  It was a beautiful day and just before we left a guy drove up on a golf cart and said "Don't leave, your Model A won the Best Of Show Trophy.
    The pictures below show not only trophy presentationwith Ryan holding the Trophy but Emily holding a bouquet of Flowers that came with the trophy.
    Not only did the kids like the car but so did the Pittsburgh Penguins mascot, Iceburg.
