All-Mopar ’33 Plymouth flashback

James (not Jim) McLeod is a paint and body man with many years (punctuated by thousands of bloody minutes) of experience in making deadlines. He’s the head painter at Time Machines, Inc., a diversified restoration and custom car-building shop a few klicks up the road from Tampa in rural Hudson, Florida. As such, James has laid hands on every kind of car imaginable. Did he have a special one? What did he center on when he was in the haze of his spray-booth temple?
