The Green Hornet and Little Red

Here are some pics I took on November 17th at the 10th annual MCACN show in Chicago. The Green Hornet was unveiled from it's half million dollar restoration, and sitting next to it was Little Red! Little Red will now go through a complete restoration of its own, and will be unveiled next year at MCACN. I was very honored that my Bonnie & Clyde was accepted for display as well :)

People have started with a lot less though.

Actually, it's in remarkable shape all things considered. My opinion anyway.

It's certainly in better shape than if it had been crushed.

Great photos. Very exciting to see those two cars together and yours fits in really well too.

Does anyone else think the Green Hornet looks a little too "perfect", maybe a little overdone on the restoration?

I donít like the paint color. The blue one is a better looking car!

But the "Blue Hornet" just doesn't have the same ring to it...

The metal flake in the Green Hornet is unbelievable! They had on display one of the original side scoops. They sanded it down ever so slowly to unveil the exact color. It shows all the layers of paint and primers.Then they went through many samples to get it right. Like it or not, it's supposed to be accurate. Obviously I'm partial to the Brittany Blue!
