    The theme for May is..... ORIGINAL PAINT

    If and only if your car is still wearing the original paint, then you're good. I will leave entries open until we get 10 or until the 26th. Whichever comes first!

    With the new t-shirts and stuff in the store, and people are probably stickered out.... what do you guys think about giving the winner a $20 credit towards the store? lame or not lame? Just trying to keep it interesting. and go!

    1984. Needs some fixes here and there. Just like the owner! lol

    I'm not entering, because I sold the car, but this was the original paint on my '86 GN frontend.JPG hoodpaintreflection2.JPG

    One of the reasons I sold the car was because I just knew any day the perfect original paint would turn on me and start falling off, like almost everyone I knew who owned a GN in the 1980's/1990's.

    The paint on my white '86 T-type was "original" for 20 years, but large chunks of the topcoat had fallen off when I bought it in 1995..
