My first was an '82 right after they got out from under AMF but not all the AMF was out of them yet.

OTOH I was impressed with the overall quality of my '88 and '92 Harleys. What a difference! No soft rings, oil leaks, frame cracks, electrical problems or anything like that which you tended to get with AMFs. Mechanical problems are a helluva lot worse than paint bubbles when you're on the road.

What the Z3 needs is a paint job like the '94 Z28 my wife had. It's a new process GM uses in that Canadian plant where they build F-bodies but not in the U.S. or so I've heard. It looked fabulous after 4 years of rarely being garaged and was so tough I think you'd need a shotgun to chip it. I've seen cars costing 5x as much that should look as good. Too bad the rest of the car wasn't up to the paint job in quality, but then you're sure not going to get that out of GM for $20K!

: I was just thinking that it would be nice if my MZ3 had the same quality paint job as my Harley. After all, they are both painted in the states.

: In twenty years and four Harleys, I've never had a paint defect.
