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!

Still the original paint from when I picked it up in October
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

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..
