Fremont Collision Center Maaco Auto Body and Paint Sponsored Newark Days Car Show

Fremont, California (EastBayDaily) — Providing auto body services in Fremont, Newark and Union City, Maaco Auto Body and Paint sponsored this year's Newark Days Car Show on Sept. 22. The city of Newark has been celebrating this tradition since 1955. The Newark Days – Country Jamboree festival featured a multitude of activities, such as an annual parade, a children's parade and the "Newark Mile" race.

Frank Barnard, president of Maaco Auto Body and Paint said, "The Newark Days Car Show is a fantastic event. It gets bigger every year. The quality of the cars and trucks on display was amazing. We were very proud to be sponsors and to learn that we had painted a few cars on display at this year's show. Maaco-Fremont doesn't do show cars–it really isn't our specialty. We showed a 1964 Ford Thunderbird that was painted several years ago. It's not a perfect paint job, but folks who saw it said it compared well to the other cars in the show. It has a very nice base coat/clear coat paint job that wasn't too expensive and works well for a car that is regularly driven. There is definitely a difference between the paint job on the Thunderbird and some of the ones that cost $10,000, $30,000 or even more. So it won't win any awards but most people that saw the cars we painted said they looked great. More importantly, Maaco was able to provide a paint job that looked good and fit in a normal person's budget."

The four-day Newark Days event attracts thousands of attendees, with multiple stages featuring top entertainment talent, arts and crafts, food and game booths, a carnival, themed areas, contests, children's activities, a seniors’ dance and bingo. In addition, more than 200 cars were displayed during Newark Days Car Show.
