Something was stamped there at one time from what I can see.  I almost wanna say it looks like a trans stamp.  Do you have that info?  Also zoom in just below the partial vin.  Are my eyes playing tricks?

Garage Talk / 4th Annual Auto Show April 1967
« on: January 02, 2018, 03:14:33 PM »
A co-worker brought this in as he was going through some stuff. It was a reprint of an article from the Nashville Banner from April of 67 about the 4th Annual Auto Show here in Nashville.

A clean pad and a whole shot of the pad will help.  It could be as simple as a 2nd strike of the gang stamp.  BUT I would not assume anything in todays age.

This is the car today with one repaint and the original vinyl top.


Sitting right in that photo and in the Bob Johnson photo.

Any idea where Vernell Chevrolet was located in TN?  Was it in or near Knoxville?

Had a nice addition to the car today. An original USA-1 plate with the cardboard backing. Huge thanks goes out to Kasey, Chris and Nuge. Great friends.

Didn't get to work on the red car components over the weekend due to doing a quicky brake job on the wife's car and installing a led light bar on my daily.  I did get a chance to clean up the Mallory cap.  Also with it being so dang cold here in middle TN; the wife and I have a couple stray cats that we feed and because we are animal lovers we bring them inside when it's below freezing.  Tonight I guess you could say I have a temporary shop cat..  We have named this little fella One Ear..  Original I know but it stuck.
