Anyone in contact with Sal (69/70 convertible, metallic yellow, under restoration). I have been wondering what happened to him and hope he and his are okay. Anyone know anything?

Regards,

Bob

Thats a good question Bob, I have been wondering about the yellow 70 vert myself. His profile says he was on 5 days ago, hopefully he will chime in with something soon.

I saw Sal two weeks ago at a local cruise night. He had his "70" standard green coupe at the show not the convertible. He was pretty disgusted with the lack of progress on the convertible. He has the car at his house and all of the body and paint work has been completed. It appears that someone in Tennessee has all of the chrome pieces for the convertible and has not returned those pieces to him. He sent them approximately a year ago to be replated. He desperately needs the pieces back to finish the car. He needs the chrome trim above the windshield to be returned so he can have the convertible top fit and installed for him.

I'm still here and I'm still waiting on chrome. It's been a year and he is still finishing up and polishing. The guys name is Bubba Moon and the company is The Chrome Wizard in Tennessee. My 70 vert has been in the garage since May waiting for Chrome. Will keep you posted. Sal

It just could be he is one of those business people that just can't say, "HEY, I AM BACKED UP, AND IT'S GOING TO BE SEVERAL MONTHS BEFORE I CAN GET TO YOUR PARTS".

I have a personal friend, owns a very busy auto shop, but just can't tell it like it is. A customer will pull up to the service counter, they need a complete engine rebuild, and he will tell them, SURE, WE WILL GET RIGHT ON IT, and then they pull the engine the next day, push the car out, and WHO KNOWS WHEN IT WILL BE FINISHED. He doesn't cheat people, just can't TURN ANY BUSINESS AWAY.

Maybe Bubba is one of them............maybe.
