    This here is Daisy (warning.. it's long with lot's of pics!)

    Hi guys. I don't know why it's taken me forever to get on this forum but here I am and here's the story of Daisy (I don't mind if you skip all this jabber and move onto the pictures :P)

    I received this rusty heap in 2006. It was my boyfriends token of love to me. He bought it from the original owner in the South Bay. She was a little old lady who had it sitting in the back yard. The wheel well had nests in it! I'd never seen anything like it. She is a 1970 Honda AN600.


    In the spring of 2007 we decided to do something with it. We started to strip it.









    Since there was SOOOOOOOOOOOO much rust, Tommy felt it needed a bath in some acid.



    Here she is getting set to go


    He's really strong :wink:


    OMG.. after it had it's bath, we found out that the acid may have compromised the glue that was used to attach certain pieces of the car together. :shock:



    Off to get 6 point cage. And while she's at it... stitch her up!


    He's awesome and I love what he did to my girl!



    I had been eyeballing paint colors for awhile and wanted a color that popped. But, it had to be cute! Baby Pink with flakes did not go over well with Tommy :cry: Mellow Yellow was it...




    Some Cosmics for my little lady..


    Had the seats reupholstered...


    Put it all back together...



    and that, my friends, is how Daisy came to be.

    Her first show was JCCS 2007. She was not totally completed; just needed the badges and vents to be refurbished/cleaned/etc.

    We got to meet J Leno.

    I was interviewed for Car Crazy and was featured too!

    Daisy earned the Merciless Mings Award!

    It was great for being our first show!

    Thanks for coming along for the ride... see you on the streets!
    Don't forget to wave

    Welcome to JNC. I'm glad you went with the light yellow instead of pink!
