Almost Everything'sCar of the Day is our very own 2000 BMW 528i Touring. This is our "Shop Car" we use it to transport customers locally after dropping off their cars for us to paint, hauling supplies, now it will also be useful for catching eyes and promoting our shop (on the off days that we arent in our Red Rolls Royce, or our Golden Helicopter). We repaired little dings and imperfections on the BMW's body, sanded out all of the rock chips, applied a primer sealer, and finally painted it with our Company Color: GM's "Torch Red" using our premium single stage "Urethane" paint!
Here's something you don't see everyday. Almost Everything'sWreck of the Day is a Nissan GT-R Racer. In the video several GT-Rs pass by during the 2014 Long Tom Hill Climb race in the town of Sabie, Mpumalanga, South Africa. The last car takes the turn a little too fast, flips several times before disappearing down a ravine. This was the fourth run of the day for 47 year old driver Wilhelm Baard. Fortunately he was not seriously injured and attended the awards ceremony at the end of the event. Baard won South Africa's Knysna Hill Climb in 2011 in a GT-R.
The 2014 Long Tom Hill Climb took place on January 25th and 26th. It was sponsored by Renault (Nissan's parent) and the Sports Car Club of South Africa. The race covers 6.3 km (3.9 miles) along the banks of the Sabie River in Mpumalanga, South Africa. The next video shows cars leaving the starting line and beginning their assault on the hill. The sounds are great.
Many thanks to the spectators who recorded these videos, our friends at WreckedExotics.com who reliably find an astonishing amount of this type stuff on a daily basis, and to AutoEvolution who provided us with the background story and more images of the event.
Almost Everything'sCar of the Day is a 1991 Toyota MR2. This "Poor Man's Ferrari" came to our shop looking like a "Poor Man's Toyota" (No Offense Toyota) its previous owners decided to Spray Paint the entire car. In addition to the spray paint, the body kit was improperly mounted, damaged, and needed replacement! The MR2's owner acquired all of the replacement parts while we tore down the car. We mounted the new bodykit so that it fit as close to perfect as possible after repainting the car with Ford's "Hulla Blue Metallic" color that this car's owner had requested in our "Base Coat-Clear Coat" paint!
With just 3 days left in the annual San Francisco A-List Competition, Almost Everything Auto Body has been among the top 5 out of nearly 100 nominees. But vote counts keep growing and 1st, 2nd & 3rd place have changed a few times. Please help us stay in the lead. We're hoping for our 3rd win in 4 years.
Almost Everything'sCar of the Day is a 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX. This Silver rally sedan came to our shop looking terrible, its factory paint had been fading over the past couple years and its owner decided that it was finally time to repaint his Subie! The silver paint color was not going to stay, the owner chose to refinish his car with Honda's "Nighthawk Black Pearl" a deep glossy black with a Blue Pearl accent only visible in direct sunlight!
