It’s Only Original Once: Unrestored Classic Cars
A flawless restoration turns heads, but an unrestored classic car can be an absolute show stopper. "It's Only Original Once: Unrestored Classic Cars" explores the allure of the unmolested original. Among the cars captured in the over 500 colored photographs is a '57 Corvette wearing its first and only coat of paint it ever had. And a 1960 Mercury Montclair with barely 20,000 original miles on the odometer. Author Richard Lentinello writes passionately about these time capsule cars, from drip patterns on door jams to decades old maintenance decals nothing goes over looked. For restorers this book is a fantastic guide to a period perfect restoration. For everyone else, its like opening a long lost jar of new car smell.
