    Old adage: “There are (used to be) good body men, and old body men, but there are (used to be) no good old body men.”

      How true. When this topic started I got to thinking about full time body men that I knew from the 1950s - 1960s. They all died by the time that they were 65. I am glad that I only worked at this on a part time basis and off and on at that.

        I've been painting cars from 1972 and 71 years old today. Painted enough car if I lined them all up they would hit CA from Minnesota. Used about every kind of paint ever produced sometimes with a good mask sometimes not. Can remember when everyone sprayed acrylic Enamel with a catalyst and your eyes would be watering and nose running before you where done with nothing but a fan in the window. Still at it but I'm sure someday I'm going to die.

          Got to tell this story. Middle 70's I went to South Bend (IM maybe). Think I was outside the Avanti factory. Got into a conversation with a old studebaker employee. He stated he painted the first Studebakers with a paint brush.
