Last year Eckert's Rod and Custom stormed on to the SEMA stage the Mach 40. Chosen for the Mothers Show Shine, Sony Grand Torismo and Best in show, the SEMA world feel in love with Eckert's.
Pretty much everyone is trying to figure out what this car is and we were too the first time we saw it’s a 1966 Aztec. So it was built back in 1966 and they were a kit car and basically people bought them to racetrack. This one had interest for the customer because corvair power he’s a corvair air cool guy. So that's reason why we built the car for him. We changed to DeBeer in about 2005- 2006; reliability it stays we got paint jobs that are 7- 8 days old and they look the same as a day we squirted them. The other nice thing about the DeBeer is just we know what we are going to get when we spray it. We can spray it out we know how it’s going to lay how it’s going to react we abuse our paint we know it will hold up to the abuse and we just love it. I mean it just always comes out good. Whatever we want will custom make it and match it so we have no problem matching or creating colors. Can't recommend it enough I mean we're putting these paint jobs on these cars the paint jobs alone between the bodywork and paint you're talking anywhere’s access thirty to sixty thousand dollars sometimes hundred thousand dollars paint job and that was to fail it would just wipe our business out. There's just no we cannot have the fail option is not an option so knock on wood we have no problems. I haven’t had any problems don’t expect any problems so that’s why we use product over and over again.
This year they returned with a a rare air cooled Azteca. The car is part 1 of 2 that we will not see until the Detroit AutoRama in 2014. We had to stop and talk about their amazing year since SEMA 2013, the Mach 40 and their plans for the future.
