In this corner weighing in at 4000 pounds is the barn find Continental being restored by Mike green of Maritime Classic s in Michigan. And in the other corner weighing in at .. wait.. 4000 pounds is the barn find all original low hours Continental hardtop being restored by Don hardy of McCall Boat Works. yes, thats right, two stunning 1961 Hardtop 21′ Continentals being restored for the big Lake Tahoe show next year.
Both restorers have won big at Tahoe, Mike Green though has a very impressive win record at the huge International show, have won best of show 3 years! Don Hardy has slammed it out of the park at Tahoe and other west coast shows. So who will it be.. You will be the winner.. Other than us, who don’t have to do any of the work, or spend any money.. We just get to watch the battle of the bungs! Kinda like the thrilla in Manilla! Anyway, I digress. Through out the winter we will be reporting in, but if you want a blow by blow battle, just like or friend them on facebook. They are very generous with there bragging, and pictures..
We can of course all comment here and sit back as they find the little hidden “issues” that no doubt we will find. All though from reports from Paul Harrison, the owner patron of the Mike Green Continental. It was very clean and nice. Somehow though I have a feeling that he will issue a full Harrison comment below.. Get out your thesaurus.. and yes I had to google thesaurus! Smart asses!
