Just detailed a '65 Shelby GT 350. I wish it was mine. It belongs to the owner of the Mustang restoration/speed shop where I
detail part time. Beautiful car, has been
restored back to original condition. Can't
believe he let me touch it.

That's really cool, Collin Wayne. There's this guy who lives by me who has a Shelby GT 350 and who knows how many other beautiful cars of every flavor. His name is George Stauffer, I think he even knows Carroll Shelby. His garage is where my Bullitt is spending the winter.

Way cool.

Was driving around the other day and saw a blue GT350 in a garage. Did'nt have the nerve to just go up and gawk at the car though.

Today they let me rub on a dark green '66 GT
and a sweet '68 GT that just had a complete
resto right down to the grease pencil marks
on the components, etc. I have always liked
black or dark gray interiors but the '68 had
a maroon interior...it was pretty nice.

Cool part time job...learning alot about the
classic Mustangs. :smile: (Corvette convert)

Very cool, Collin! :cool:

The dude that used to own St. George Ford has a pristine race prepped '66 GT350 that he used to have in the showroom.

I was also informed he owns a DGH Bullitt also, but he and I haven't touched base yet for me to invite him here.

BULLITTBRO1...no way dude! I don't want to
get shot at. Been there done that.

Today I was allowed to detail a late model
(I think it was a 97 or 98) Cobra that runs
9 second quarters. They had just put the roll
cage in and my job was to remove all the
spark paper adhesive and clean the glass
I GOT BIG RESPONSIBILTIES HERE! :lol:

PY,

How much does it cost to have a car detailed there?

Silver 2K2 GT,

I have two jobs. Monday through Thursday I am a driver's ed instructor and on Fridays I detail Mustangs at Paul's Automotive Engineering, a Mustang restoration/modification shop. :smile:

I love my two jobs...but I can't wait to go back to the job I had before these two jobs came along. :smile:

Bullittoid, good question. Mustangs are not brought in just to be detailed. I simply shine them up after body work or mechanical modifications are finished. :smile:

Was done detailing early today so they wanted me to disassemble this '66 289 Mustang to get it ready for restoration. They even let me use TOOLS! :lol:

Collin even used extra care....he placed EVERY nut and bolt carefully into one box

The last car he reassembled he had a box of leftover parts....he figured that if he couldn't determine where they went they must not have been very important! :lol:
