About “Onyx”

My dad came into some money recently and decided that I deserve something better than the old, rusty, leaky turbo Mustang I had been driving, so he got me this car for high school graduation. Believe me, I'm NOT going back to that Mustang!

About “NOW 94”

This car was my 36th birthday present from my wife.
It was in nice driver condition with 59457 original miles We drove it like it was for 2 years enjoying every minute. Then started the restoration. All paint was taken back buy hand to the factory black primer for a good base. Body was in perfect condition with no cracks or damage at all. Then started with the sealer coat, primer coat, more rubbing, more primer, more blocking including making fiberglass bumpers fit (lots of work but better than the urethane in the long run) all in all, alot of hard labour. Then came the 4 coats of Corvette Torch Red followed by 5 coats of clear coat enough for the color sanding.
