That is an awesome car.

Netflix has a new series called Car Masters: Rust to Riches that I recently binged. It's a fun show centered around the Gotham Garage in Telumaca California. The cast are amusing but very real and the cars they produce are just awesome. For example, this chrome wrapped thunderbird:

Their main mechanic/engine girl Constance Nunes doesn't hurt the show's watchability at all either.

Yes, she does the actual engine work. She is not there just for her looks. These builds provide plenty of pretty sights:

Cousi, That T-Bird looks like a sample of Mid Century awesome. The show looks pretty good too and it isn't just my pilot's respect for a really good mechanic that makes me say that. 8-)

Of course not! We fedora aficionados are nothing if not gentlemen. ;)

True, we are delightful, roguish perhaps, but still delightful. :)

I usually don't want my mechanics undressed while examining my car, but sometimes there are exceptions.

(and while I'm not certain what Ms. Nunes is doing, I'll not raise a fuss since she's the mechanic and I'm not.) ;)

Herb Roflcopter, Now this is a prime example of two people looking at the same thing and seeing something different. You sir, look at this photo and see a mechanic who is without clothing and I think you are assuming that it is for no good reason. "The mechanic forgot clothing", "The mechanic is too lazy to get dressed", "The mechanic fell asleep and the clothing was stolen", etc.

I look at this photo and see the consummate professional who is willing to remove any item, including clothing, that could possible scratch or otherwise mar the finish on the machine in question. I am sure that this ultimate professional is worth every penny of the presumably exorbitant, extra fee charged for such a service. Two drink, er, oil change minimum. :)
