Johnny Dark Woodill Wildfire #1: Artistry by Dan Palatnik

Hi Gang…

More and more we are using Dan Palatnik’s renderings to “light the way” for our restorations of handcrafted American sports cars.  In addition, these renderings showcase each car in a beautiful presentation the way the cars were meant to be appreciated.  We could not do this without the talents of Dan Palatnik. Thanks Dan for your inspired help 🙂

Did I tell you that we found the red Johnny Dark Wildfire several years ago – still unrestored?  It’s true that several people say that they have “found” the Johnny Dark Wildfire (red movie car) but in researching each of these cars, none of the required modifications on the car or the history of the car matched the true movie car.  One Wildfire did though – and the owner didn’t even know it.
