About “Fire Mustang”

Another car I had bought from the Insurance Salvage Auctions. I fixed this one up then did the "fire" style paint on it. I own a body shop, and have done lots of flames, but this was the first time I did this more stylized type of fire. It came out pretty good and I took it to the local shows to advertised my shop. This car had minor damage to the left quarter panel when I got it ... an easy fix, but I did paint the complete exterior.


This is beetle number 2. I rebuilt a 2000 beetle from a fire car for my wife. e had the brite yellow bug for 2 years before I totaled it again. Then I found beetle number 2 online and went to Chicago to get it as a replacement for my wife. This one has all the options she really wanted plus some I wanted too.
