    It has been a while since I posted anything, but I do frequent this site. It’s a great forum!
    I’m taking an Automotive Restoration class at my local community college. It is a pretty laid back class about 50/50: young students working the class project and older guys working on their rides. I look forward to the 6+ hours each Friday morning.

    The only written assignment is a 3 page essay on someone else’s restored car. I’d like write about a car something like mine: an older Cadillac (or?) where the powertrain has been replaced with a 472/500 Cadillac engine, preferable a “street” car.
    Mario’s car would be a perfect choice, but unless he has another trip to OPG planned, it’s a little too far away. I’ve visited Marty before and the Nashillac would be great, but I hesitate to drive 3+ hours for an interview.

    Does anyone know anyone I could interview about their car? I live in San Diego’s “North County Area”, but I travel frequently to Torrance, CA. This means someone from San Diego, or along I-5 & I-405 through Orange County/Long Beach, or in LA’s “South Bay Area” would work great!

    Thanks for your help! :D

    Maybe Paul could even take a photo of Marty lying on the hood of the Old Nash for you to include in your essay. :yikes:

    Only problem is Mario would also want an autographed copy of it as well. :eek:wned:

    I would take a drive up to Apple Valley and interview Marty and Paul.

    I hope he leaves the thongs and high heels at home; it would not be pretty.

    Frankly, I'm hoping there is not a better alternative AND I HAVE to go to Apple Valley. (Of course, if I was smart I'd do something by phone or "virtual"...save time and $'s)
