I try, at least once a day, to walk down to our installation bay and just nose around. Yesterday I strolled into the area and watched as two of our 3M certified employee installers applied decals on a race car. At first I wasn’t certain of the race series—then I saw the SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) decal. Over the years my wife and I have attended SCCA events around the Midwest.

A Late Model Corvette

I noticed Jonathan standing to the side with a big smile on his face; I introduced myself and asked about the car. He told me it was an older “Vette” one of three he and his father Robert raced. When asked, Jonathan thought the car began life as a 1988 Corvette, but wasn’t certain. I asked what he thought of the work and he explained it was an older car that wasn’t in the best condition; they were preparing it for Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational June 6th through June 8th, at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The car had been repainted, and now it was time for decals. As the decal application progressed so did Jonathan’s enthusiasm. The car was starting to look pretty darn good. In this video, you can watch the transformation from older “Vette” to a race car worthy of the legendary Speedway Motor.
