I think it will always have its place and <hes> what i'd like to. I mean i there was a window where show cars were really. You know full blown shoulder. Show vehicles vehicles were thing and i think we're starting to see more and more of that stuff and i i appreciate it. I just think that that's at that point to like. I'm fortunate enough to work at that. That high end is really fun. It's scary to like. It's kind of hard to explain to someone like a lot of guys out there. Go mad at so crazy to to build a million dollar car. You swallow a million dollars on a car literally in an afternoon if you wanted to go yeah paint. I'm car one hundred grand easy. That's just get your foot foot in the door maker. Somebody like what do you do with that. Though this is where i really kept me up at night i've laid there might rethink in in my life like gone. We're do you go once. You've done kind of the ridler stuff. There's nowhere to go and it's hard. It's really difficult. Let's be conversations of time.

I've got this semi truck and it's broken half swing. I wanna see that that to me. Is the coolest thing yeah there's history. Something happened at some point. There's a story which is why the patina stuff and i feel like for me personally stuff like that. Just i wanna drive what i built and i have built cars my civic. It was one of them where even though i drove it. It made me nervous. It made me stress out because i work you have to yeah. It's everything you have right and then i literally had it all die in front of me. You know what i mean. I was worried all the time i get a door ding and then i roll it in the cars total i and and so it ended up in a junk yard and blyth and i was told by insurance company i could pull on my parts off of it as long as it rolled..

He hid much of franklin mint as a benchmark. I'd say these overstep that yeah. That's so good benchmark well in franklin puts us some cool stuff at their attention to detail and some of the things that sean was talking about how he does the homework on say the bench seat eight or this or that other detail nothing against any of the other brands that ended admit but sometimes they're details are not exactly as accurate as they could would be put out a super product.

Thank you know, because that's what it's all about. That's the roots, man. You know, it's like going to the Karsh I love car shows. I love swat I love junkyards. Love that stuff like that stuff gets me. Exciting man. I could spend a day in junkyard junk yard, so happy, I could spend a day at swap meets. I, I think I've gone every single one of them. I very rarely missed one. I love a man. It's like finding treasure now. And then and then going to car shows, man, I get inspiration. I get talked to people I get the look at what people are dealing and I love it. Man. You know, there's just something about it, pulling your chair out and sit and by your truck and people coming up and wanna talk about it, and it's like, yeah, you know, we got something in common. You know you think that's cool. I think it's cool to let's talk. You know I love it. We had, we need to do when we get Alex and Brad back in town. We'll all get together as a group will do a junkier troll by food on. Oh, yeah. So much fun. We have west, we go to junk here. We have so much fun. I live for that. Alex, and I. That's, that's yeah. That's how we built drugs. I mean. Yeah, we're we're not catalog guys for his part. We like we like diving through wrecking yards. Yeah. It's like a find stuff up. And you're like, oh my God. Yeah. This this or this. Yeah. We got some hard stories that. Yeah. We could write a book. I got a guy that the Kerry calls me. He's on speed dial. I'm like, dude.

You feel like you want something when you leave the junk yard and you got some it's like so cheap versus you know you just feel so good coming off junk junkyard bed full. Unfortunately, those days are so hard to get now because remember back when a lot of those seventy three to eighty seven place was loaded with them or thin. Now they've disappeared. Now. They're all mid nineties, and early two thousands while we're interested in the engines in them. Now pretty much that's about it sheet metal man. You know, these trucks, rusted out from the factory. So the metal go to swap meets, and I try to buy up as much sheet metals. I can. It's like crazy, right? Yeah. You'd be from back east and maybe it from the mid west. I remember those things you never saw one without the rear fenders are beds is just rotted two pieces. Yeah. They recalled them. They would give you actual. Section at the dealership it was like a four. Brian. Yeah. I eighty two pickup. That was such a rock box. And I couldn't even use it as a winner car. It was so bad. My dad used to joke about that truck. Because with time we got done he's like, well, he says you always wanted a corvette. Right. I'm like, hey, because you two thirds of the way there man. It's so much glass in that truck here. I that's why I can I can never buy one painting. You know guys like go. Yeah. It's repaint on out because I know man, those things are packed with Bondo. Man. Don't pay just they rust it out. You never buy a repaint a seventy three to seventy six Reese because you're, you're, you're rolling the dice. Big time. It'd be alone on that wheel opening. You're like I don't remember the wheel opening being four inches. Thick. When did they put sheet metal screws up in the wheel opening? That was a truck. Oh, so obviously, okay. You got a lot of cool stuff coming out. You've got more parts coming out. You've got the, the die cast cars coming out what else is on the horizon for square body. Syndicate, coming up in late two thousand nineteen. You know, we have the. We have the crew cab with the Commons in it with the with the extended cab in shortened bed. So that's going to be just like are out of state cruiser and stuff like that. Tell our trailer for you need to or doing that for the brand. We're doing, you know, we got the van I'd like to build the ban, and make it like a will like be spoke like has shirts and hats in it, and everything you just pulled slide the door open. And it's like, for instance store, you know something like that. He really cool. And then the I got a full convert blazer that I wanna just make it look like a stumper. I want forty four is on it and just make it look like a toy. I mean just I took my daughter, I had one I took her out in the desert, and I sold it. She's like, why'd you had so much fun. I'm like you couldn't tell me that last week I sold it, you and now I had to find another one in and they just like they triple in price every week. I it's like I couldn't believe how how much he thinks you've gone for seventy three to seventy five blazers. I ended up finding one from my, my buddy, Mitch out and Kelly hooked me up with a with a friend of his, and I found the rust free seventy three. Would no motor in it in in. He had everything, but the motor trends, which I was fine went because I was either gonna El acid or put a big block, and had the eight log, axles and everything with eight and a half inch lift kit. I like this is perfect, but now for forty four is on, I got to cut the fenders and I'm like, oh, my gosh. I don't wanna do that. So now I'm just trying to figure out what the deal with that. But we definitely wanna do four wheel drive, you know, and then we got the toilet of coming out. We'd love to have a model come out. We've got some cool stuff coming out with the with the Powell. Always trying to stay cutting edge on that achieve right now. You know, we got the eight eight thousand mile regional truck that I haven't even like driven. Yeah. Drove it around the block a couple of times. I can't wait to bring that out and do some shows with it. But that's it. You know, we just want to. You know, just some some Brandon Bassett is out there that want to support the brand in, in that have the same views as we do and get.

"We're in the parts business, and that's a whole nother thing. No. After Sima twenty fifteen we made we had to coat a digital make us a gauge cluster. And after Sima, every time we posted a picture of SO ones gauge cluster, Scott Johnson would get calls for people ordering them, equal map. He's like, what do you want me to do man? He's like every time we posted a picture. I get phone calls of people wanting to water this thing. What do you wanna I'm, like, solid till? He's like, you know, you need to get into parts business. And then, you know talking what Reno it Accu Aries like dude, you need to get into parts businessman that word syndicate, everybody wants that word on their truck man. You know. And I'm like, I don't know if I want to deal with that, and this, and that we're do we, you know, we do plenty of hats and shirts part, and I had someone else, tell me again I'm like, all right. So I went back to Scott Johnson and I sat right? Let's make you know ten. Engage clusters or whatever will sell them. But I'm like, you know, you got these things are like, you know, almost thousand dollars in a light east people there. That's what they pay for the trucks, and, you know, they're not going to buy it dollar cage cluster. Whatever we sold. We couldn't keep them in stock, and it was unbelievable. And we everybody was amazed. We, we sold so many so fast, and it hasn't stopped, and we got into the parts business. And you know we built. Truck. You know, for the brand, you know, in this is our second truck. And now we want to build a four wheel drive, and, and, and, and just, you know, cater to the four wheel drive market and the comings and door max diesel market. We got a crew cab that we add it three and a half interest to and shorten a bed to a seven foot bed, and we were doing that right now. And we have a fan we got a creeper van that we're, we're going to do for the brand LS in it. Yeah. We got a blue one now. So that's that's one where we got rid of white one, I'm gonna build a blue eventually, but the thing is, is stay relevant. Nets. The hardest thing to do today with the generations. You know, these trucks are three generations, man, fifteen years in three generations, and identify this truck with their past, and that's you know, like I said, being right place, right time with these trucks. I just think it, you know, it all worked out, well but to keep it going. Just got to stay relevant, and just build cool stuff, and, and just bring good people together and, and just keep it going. You know, we the brand is for the people man to where they're, they're part when he by shirt and hat or decal their partisan. It shows that they're, you know, they appreciate that body style and they're part of it. You know, we want them to be part of the syndicate. They are to syndicate, we're not descended. Kick their to syndicate. So it's, it's, it's, it's making people feel like they're a part of some, you know, and, and we wanna keep it away. We give people time say, hey, I want to start a chapter in, in Alaska. Hell, -fornia, Texas. And we don't want to be a club. We wanted to be family oriented. You know where everybody has the same interest in and it's a lifestyle. It's not a not a club. It's a lifestyle. So when you put that shirt on your part of the syndicate in the lifestyle and everything else, I guess the best way I keep splaying but, you know, I think that will always be around. It's one of those brands that I hope that, you know, forty fifty years from now I could you know, from still around. I could walk a swap me and one of my old shirts walking by or an old sticker, or something, like that, you know, an old them to machine car and a pile of other ones. You know, I it's to see that it'd be like, oh, man, you know what a cool memory or you know, it's cool to see that some guy's gonna come up to you. Hold on one of the t-shirt boxes and go, why is it through a model in here? Happens at least once a week. It's never gonna change me twice as many bugs as we made model. So you didn't get a muddle in your. My. Like my goal now is the make model. To have to figure this out or just once you put a random model of something else in there. I feel like oops. Or to seal them all up and see the worth nothing. If you open them through it, they shake it, you know, they don't know what. Put a bunch of plastic, you couple of peaceful Tupperware, if you works. Don't break the seal. But what, what I've noticed about you guys, you know, with the brand and the lifestyle that you guys have created how many offshoots of guys regular guys trying to look to do something similar? I don't I've noticed a bunch of it. I see I'm out. I see guys with, you know, Seton this seat, ten that, you know, all different types of c-, ten titles and names. And I got to think that it was all because of your idea. How you've kind of hatched. This idea to the regular guy to go, you know, something I think I'm gonna give this a shot myself. Yeah. I love it. I see it at up there in these apparel brands, you know, I think that it's a lot harder than people think I think the only reason why we made it as far as we did is, we were able to get street cred to where the build is what made people wanna wear our stuff where they said, man. You know that truck that truck is cool. I want I want something that's a sociology with that. I want to wear something that, you know, that has to do with that truck, or whatever to where that street credit is what made the people by what they bought from us over to over two years in Nevada GMs that they did. And, and on top of that we only do small runs of stuff. So when it's gone, it's gone will never rerun anything, unless it's a staple product we have a handful of things that will will always be there. But they're like all our small stuff, people collect them that by two or three of each and no put one on the shelf, and where the other two hats, you know, because they know we, if they like it they buy because they ain't it's not coming back. So I think that there's, there's a value in that. And then the quality of the bills is what I think, solidifies, our brand would put in our brand with a high quality, the air. So, you know, there's, there's apparel brands out there, and then there's lifestyle brands like true lifestyle brands to where, you know, we get our trucks, and we'll go up. And, and you know, let's say we go up to Prescott in, you know smoke cigars and have launched or whatever and then cruise down the hill and due to switch backs and stuff and day out, and I want people to go out and do things like that. With the boys, you know, or with the families, and, and go out and enjoy these trucks, in and have that experience with the lifestyle of what we do and really enjoy their stuff. You know, I tell people it's like, you know, everybody's like in seeing, you know, they get like, oh man. Look. This guy's truck. And why did you do that? And this I tell them I'm like, look man. That's what makes him happy. Don't knock anybody stuff. He built at the way heat what makes him happy? And what he likes don't ever knock it, you know, and same thing. I Bill, what I, I like an if somebody knocked it, they, they have their opinion. But it's like, look man. We're all we all enjoy the same thing. And we all had the same love, you know, so let's him brace that instead of knocking other people's stuff, it's like it, it drives me nuts, man. When I hear that when people walk by oh, God. Look at the welds on there. Why would you put those wheels on? And it's like dude, because he likes them. And, and it makes them happy. Right. You know. So like just let it let it go. You know. And it's just it's crazy. Man. You know. But it's people forget, like, look, we have a lot in common. You know, when I go like my daughter's, you know, a swim team or whatever you go, and you meet these dads, and you're trying to have small talk. I got nothing. In common with these guys, a lot of them out here, like they wanna talk about golf or baseball. And I'm like, dude, the conversation. It's quick. And it's like east guys. Forget, look, we all have something major and Carmen we could talk for hours and bond. And you know because we all have the same love for to sing things, especially the truck community. You know, we all have memories in these trucks, and we're hot riding amount, we're having fun. It's like look don't take for granted man, because, you know, I'll bet you. They have the same issues I do. With other dad's not getting along with them because got nothing in common. You know, that's it. I never got along with the bro dads. I mean so many of those they'd hang out, and I just couldn't talk golf. Thank you. But it was always great because I pointed it. So what do you do for a living? It's like design hot rods. All of a sudden, it went from being like he's the standoff guy. He's the cool that he's, he's the broke dad, but he's the cool bed.

"Welcome to the round pick podcast. I'm brian. I'm brad. I'm Alex, and I'm Mark there. We have it, we are. It is a true honor to be here on episode. Sixty one with a an artist whose work, I, I look up to on so many different levels, man. The one the only art Alvarez thanks for joining us, man. Wow. What ends the junction ashtray can can we kinda keep that in filed for a while? I ended this sixty one and I'm sixty one years old radio turn sixty two. So what a number great number to be it. We'll have sixty two then screw kick. I it'd be next year. No, it's great to be on here. I as I was talking to earlier was you guys, I, I was just catching up on some of the, the radio hearings are what's a podcast. I don't even know. But I'm catching up on it. You were talking earlier about I I'm more than an Artis. And it's funny that you would clamp onto that because there's so many facets to me, and where I started in how I got into this gig. I always look, as everybody knows you're always that kid E-Class getting in trouble for drawing cars. I mean, I think most of us in this arena right ear in most of us that have done a broadcast where those guys that I love the cars. I mean who didn't live hot rods, as they were kids, and it kinda came off my older. Brother yet. Nineteen fifty five Chevy and it was a Gasser. Ooh. And it was an awesome car, and he would take me a rides on it. And I'm just thinking myself. This is awesome. This is created to incredible right? So I kept that's where my starting I always on artists, but I started drawing hot reds hot in getting cartoon magazines copying them as much as I can, and that got me, a trouble, of course, like everybody else that kind of has their artistic story has grown up is a is a little hot run artist will that was me, and I guess everybody else's well, but is growing up. I never knew what an airbrush was even through high school. They never known, you know, you don't have that in the curriculum of this is an airbrush in this is how it works. I kind of found it by accident. I was working for footlocker as a manager and us managers at the and Modesto in Modesto being like the hometown of graffiti American graffiti. That's where the stories told Stockton Modesto turlock. Doc, I happen to live in Modesto and mckendry was the big cruise so working at footlocker us managers at the mall there. Decided to go to a car show. Now I came from a small town in Santana's solving you guys in the more debts. Get real small town. But great towns, a great town. Visit you have solving you have to Danish pastries. He got elected stuff going on. P Souso sins. Absolutely. So when I went to this, of course, who went to the cruising, and all I had never been to a car show car because of this little town than move into Desa, which is a little cow town in itself. A car show caveman deter lock a bunch of us, guys got together. I'm excited. I wanna go see a car show. I've heard all about these. So we head out to this car show, and it's four of us. And we come into this first building, it's almost like the fairplay cts interlocks, you have those kind of hanger, looking places where you have all the cars in. So we go into the. I hangar and literally, I stopped in my tracks because I saw the great Rene zero airbrushing t shirts. I was just stunned. This was it this. I, I just couldn't believe it, and I didn't talk to him for. Well, because I stay I stood back. I wanted to see what was going on. I was really just captivated. I even told the guys you guys keep gone. I want to check this out. I'm watching this guy airbrush, and I'm thinking to my in my mind like everybody else, there's money here. There's absolute money because I can see it going on through the counters. So after about fifteen twenty minutes I walked to him. I said, man, what is this, you know, and he's kinda give me this. We're look, but, you know, when people walk up to your booth, and even I knew when later on you have this glassy look in, I can tell when kids come up like what is that kind of thing? And what are you doing? And I understand it. So he knew that I was really. Really interested in what was going on. So he made it sound like he had a cornered on this part of the world in, I shouldn't partake in any type of venture. That told me man I'm in, I am absolutely in. And so he would not tell you this was back in the nineteen seventy nine nine hundred eighty he's not gonna tell me shit. He's not gonna tell me anything because that's the way it was a lot of artists would keep to themselves. I knew that there was this little item out there on took a good look at it. So the next day in Modesto, they has just built an air brothers. So there I go in, and I'm asking for this, and I don't even know the name I'm saying it's a pistol, look thing. There's pain coming out. It sounds like there's air. I'm literally describing it to her. She goes oh, you mean an airbrush that's it. That's what I want. She says guy I can't there's no one here behind the airbrush counter. It's a specialty thing. But the general be next week or next week the next day, and I said, all right, I'll be in the next day. Sure enough. I'm there. Air. But this is how it started. You know, I knew nothing about what I was getting into long story short, I'm with an airbrush in my hand. I'm in my garage. I have a pump. I got a hose. I got paint. I got a material and I'm just painting my ass off. And I'm just painting and painting and painting. I don't know what I'm doing. I absolutely. There's no YouTube. There's nobody that I go can go to, to kind of ask what's going on here? But I did take some stuff back to the guy that so me the air brushes. And he says my God in whose teaching you who's, how do you know all this stuff and I go vote. I'm just learning on my own. This is you know what do you think? He says, what you're doing grape your, your business a couple of stuff. So he would I, I don't know if you guys know what model h Pasha is. But it's a just an automatic trigger has no double action that had all just it's your pushed down get eight I gotta go in, because that was what I started with. That was my first year. That's said bicycle badger. One fifty. Wow. That's weird. Okay. Yeah. And now everybody knows what the H again, pushed down paint comes out. But he said down here at the bottom, you know turn it a little bit. You're gonna get in a credible line. You know, your, your lines are gonna get a lot more defined. So he showed me these little tricks here and there. And sure enough I go back and do it again. And come back a week later and show me goes my guy he says, wow, this is this is incredible. So he shows me, his work, and this old guy worked back in the fifties, doing the black and white artwork that you would see in, you know, look magazine or a digest magazine, the old magazines, that showed the advertisements were Ford, or os mobile or whatever, but he had these beautiful renderings that he did back in the fifties, and I'm like, oh, my God. This is what it does. So that gave me a chance it gave me a look too wet this, this item can do so I go to swat needs, and I start there in series which is between Modesto and turlock is were literally. I started my gig. I'm working at full lockers manager. I'm taking my time off when I want to because being the manager I can make my own schedule. So I would either do it a Saturday or a Sunday. And, or maybe Saturday and Sunday take the weekend off. But I'd be working over there. So like anything else little by little. I making some money, and then little by little on Nick and more money before, you know it people are making orders in about a month and a half. I'm making more money on a one to two day, venture at a swampy than I am at a manager of footlocker. I need it wasn't hard to think about this. You know that this is going, this is going big. And I'm having a blast I'm doing exactly what I want. So I call my parents. And I go listen. I'd like to come back home and live there for a while. I have this great idea. I think it's going to really work in my mom says, okay, you can come, but I don't want you goofing around. I want you work in at what you're talking about here. So that's how it starts, and I moved back home worked for about three months, worked out of the garage, and just went nuts with my airbrushing, because I wanted to get everything out. I wanted to really get into what I was doing before. You know it my cousins get ahold of this. I'm insane is back to sending is again. So now my cousins analogy are going. Dude, you need to be in LA this year stuff will just go bonkers in L A. And this is the time eighty eighty one were the many truck craze is going on the, the bug California. Bug thing is just started started to take off, and it's seventy seven it's just goes into nuts. I mean I'm printing money literally printing money. I'm going to car shows on going to swat needs some. In fact, my main want swap meet was LA Morada, not are up you guys ever been to the Lom rod is what meat. But that's like the mother lode of swap meets a NAT area and band. I just went to town. Absolutely. I can keep going. I mean, I've, I've got tons of stuff to see if you guys are. Oh, great. What were your designed, you mostly doing at the beginning, where you doing is redoing cars? Only doing Nate people's names. The only thing I would do is cars. That's all I knew left to do was cars. And at that time, of course, once I got to make friends on the other side of the ocean with the Florida. Of course, they're doing sunsets. They're doing all this colorful stuff, and I have no idea yet. Because in the beginning there was no magazine, the magazine of airbrush action didn't come out to about nineteen ninety nine hundred eighty five eighty six and that was the first airbrush action before Stiglitz took it over, and there was, maybe eight to ten episodes of airbrush action before it went onto what it is now. So that's how you kind of learned what was going on the other side of the pond. Now you kind of get a logistics, what's going on? But in nineteen eighty three. I'm working at one of my first big car shows with RG custom rod show here in Long Beach. And I'm setting up and put all my stuff up and have a, a friend of mine these helped me out, and I'm doing a shirt that was already ordered. He taps me. He says, art, Ed Roth is coming to your booth. I'm like, what? And I thought he was just kidding me. And sure enough, I turn around, and there's big daddy of loss. And he goes, hey, kid, he says her. Wow. How long you've been doing this, and I go, I don't know couple years since this year. These are crazies are great. How much you make Anonima go about thirty five dollars now you're not make it. They're fine. I'll make him about thirty five says back in my day I was making about five ten bucks. Wow. Wow. As times change. And he says, I really like your style and this is this is awesome. I've heard a little bit about you. And I just wanted to come and say, hi, and I said, well, thank you. Man. Wow. You know, I I'm dropping my jaw. You know, I'm trying everything kind of compose myself having Ed Ross their front of my booths. So he leaves and he comes back about half an hour later. He says, hey kid, he says, I've been thinking he says athlete you like to tour with me a little bit. And like what is, how would you like to tour with me bed? He says a I I'm not I'm not able to do this, you know, quite frequently. But if I had you, there, you can airbrush while I do some other stuff and you just go wherever I go on these tours and like men, I you kidding me. You know, this is my foot through the door for it's it's a celebrity. It's my hero. It's ica. I'm very good to work with big daddy, Roth. So there you go. Oh, so, you know, two weeks later there.

And it's just like the, the patina cars is, when do you stop is, is a thing because say, a patina car comes in, and you don't want to paint body, and you don't do this, and that, but you've got to learn how to stop to where he don't take it past that you're into completely different Johner up of car, you know. Yeah. Right on. Yeah. Well, maybe that's your trend right here. Okay. Here's where you go man. To extremes. And I'm gonna hand you may. It's so hard to snuff, the snowball effect, you know. You can either a take the patina thing way too far. And just get one that you just look at a show with the car and a dustpan. Yeah. That's all that's left. I mean, six hundred horsepower this much, but seven hundred only this much more. Why not go with that? You know, right. You got to find the point where it just folds the car completely in half. Yeah. That's a guy. That's a guy thing anyway, right there like okay, six months from now, I'm not going to care that it cost me an extra right now. I won't eat for a week. But that's okay because it's six months. I'll be off. And you don't that guy move all day. You don't want your neighbor to have more than you. You could market that as a whole weight loss program. Spe- family weight loss choice like you have a family that shows up to have their car done a like you know, everybody's looking a little on the hefty side.

I had a client like that, where we're designing karma that can save which car Nisa say his neighbor had a car that was built by a very prominent shop and the competition between these two just kept escalating. So one kept on adding things to the other car, and our client, by the time we were done, I think I had drawn more designs for one car, and we're to the point where like you name it, it was getting redesigned, it was like, oh, the, the radio volume knob. Can you do five five new versions of that? But maybe, you know, have a jewel encrusted the competition hang is strong. Maybe that's the next trend. Ship. It is. I think so hot rod community has a strong family to where we're all alpha competition. But we're all we're all here for each other also, yes, you share certain secrets. But we're all here to share them and to help each other, so. But it's a it's a good competition put that way. Definitely that I'm an I'll give you the speaking of sharing. Let's all be quiet about this. Listen in, if you're at home, I think the next big trend is really gonna be fear obeyed supercars. Hm. Yeah. You're gonna be fell only one industry and what going to flip the whole trend. This is going to be great. You've seen like Lamborghini, bodied fear owes fill only nice so okay amid engine release short wheelbase seventy charger Qaeda. Just sounds, yes. We're and for for you, Brad.

Here's my thirty six n way. I've never even thought of that yet, maybe that's when we should have found out before you just. We'll save that for the lightning round. Yeah. Exactly. I've never saw trying to even think of something that somebody's brought me in. I'm like, no. That's not gonna work. I've had some come to me that, you know, this is what I won't. I won't it yellow purple flames on it all blah. And I'm like it's just not our style in turn it down. And that's really the probably the main one that always sticks in my head because the fact of that's what they won't it in this one that far long ago, weird car wise. I don't think I've actually been hit with that one yet someone that didn't like, you know, we'll save that for one day when you, you, you do a call in, it'll be yes.

But all that's coming around now. And it's scary there so far out of range to pricewise, it's ridiculous. And everybody who's got one of those.

He's always always have when your buddies in the back trying to work out. One of the bubbles do it in strips, you know had the had the lines in the cross lines. That was before we got to where we could actually might get one piece. I remember experimenting with stuff like that the hardest window I ever tinted in my life. I did the back window on a sixty Biscayne, and I did that in two pieces, with a buddy of mine, and I hope right now, Kurt, I hope you're sitting out there hope you going into shakes over that 'cause that's. He goes through about five roles at ten to get the one piece to fit. Oh, yeah. And then then you get that one piece the second piece screws up.

"Or anything is is. A young kid. He's, he's only twenty six twenty seven years old. And he just has a knack for any just calm about it. I mean that stuff is hard to handle, it's really hard to handle. And unfortunately they they're treating these guys at rap cores. It's kinda like they don't pay them. Well, nobody pays these guys. Well, it's just like oh, yeah, yet you wrap cars and they pay him. Fifteen bucks an hour in. It's worth a whole lot more the next, I know that's not everybody, you know, for you know, anybody listening out there remains some guys get paid. Well for it. It's just like doesn't seem to be respected. Yeah. And treat them like window. Tint guys, probably. Yeah. Exactly. And it's like and since the whole other heart eight is if you've never done it. Yeah. True. My guy was still in a, a challenger. He was doing the, the rear bumper, and it's all one piece and that's the problem. You gotta stretch that, you know the rear challenger Bo. Bumper, it stretches like the top, and it wraps underneath. Try and get a piece of that rat material nut to curtain in the middle like you're putting it on a bed trying to stretch it so it so it straight. And it's, it's insane. What you gotta do. And you can't stretch the material to four because what happens it has a memory in at wants the pullback after you've got it on the core. It, you know, might shrink up a little bit. And then you got a problem because it comes on done it. You got to really know what you're doing to do. These things is a lot of good wrapping guys out there. And it looks like a paint job if they're really good. 'cause we disassemble them, you know, the whole vehicle when we do, it, basically, it's like painting the core. You know, we don't we don't cut around it with a razor blade. You know we'd take it off. She's stuff. Crazy. Crazy stuff. Curium Vulcan belt vinyl whatsoever. It is part of the it's part of it. You know it isn't. That's, that's the outgrowth, and I remember there was such a like them. It's candidate will weird to camp thing, going on for a long time when vinyl started to come in lot of the older guys were like all never touch vinyl visas, the anti Christ and blah, blah, blah, it's going to be the downfall of society. Yeah, it could have been because there was some really bad vinyl. Yeah. They're still, as you know, but you get if you're gonna do it like me. I like I'm just re I refuse I try make my vinyl jobs, lake there, handpainted job. I just wanted to look generic. I missed what all the all the lettering, and I never just punch a group of text out, and he'll it and slap it on vehicle air, I mess with everything this way. It's harder to copy. It just looks better. And I guess, from being a, a hand painter. It's got that look all all do a I'll do an alphabet and scan it in. So it's something. I did. No one else has, you know, something like that. I always wanted to try and make it look custom no matter what it is it. And that's that said advantage of having done the hand the hand stuff. Yeah. For sure like you could tell that, like, even in the art side, if somebody's done marker renderings, and pencil drawings, and everything that you can tell when that person's moved to digital or they came from. Yeah. For sure. It's really cool that you're out there. You've got the to make your own fonts. Yeah. Do your own lettering, man. It such better than going like. Well, you get drunken cowboy number seven and. Yeah. I'm totally into the custom no matter what it is. I mean, we do some pretty nice stuff we do some stuff for BMW North America, and they're pretty open and a lot of it's, it's pretty cool. Even though it's, it's wrapped Lionel stuff, but we get to do some pretty neat stuff. We just did a a core for the nights hockey team. Yeah, it was a BMW eight fifty. I it was like a satin charcoal and it had what they call it was like it was like a mirror goal. But we put stripes on it, and we put the robos on, and I it sounds a little hokey, but actually looked pretty cool. It's like well interesting projects like that we get to do. We did get museum. It was in New York. We did a for the David Bowie exhibit. We, we did a car up for for BMW for that. And it was on display for a week. And I did some stuff with some shoe designers from countries. They were from they design these shoes. And then I had a do some graphics the match the shoes I just recently, put that up on my Instagram just stuff like that. It's pretty interesting stuff. Sometimes we get to do, even though it's final, it's, it's just another material in xactly, if everybody wouldn't be like, I know, like there's a lot of all these horrid court if anybody's going to be hardcore it's going gonna be made with pain. I've been doing it so long. But if you just open your mind up a little bit. It's it doesn't have the look like just because his wild doesn't have to look like a cheap flying job. You can get some cool results. Sure you guys see seen some cool stuff at, like the C Michelle, like, really neat what they do with the vinyl. But oh, yeah, I've been lucky to be part of some of that stuff in gas really need to see one of your designs made you that with a one of those Toyota, FRS models. And when I originally designed it, I was thinking, oh, this is all going to be paint. And when the came into the vinyl guys, don't say, oh, there's no way they're gonna pull this off. Yes. So bad ass. Yeah. It's one of these guys like overlay stuff, and they're like, peeling off this fine line tape from underneath, and it's cutting it like a razor razor take. That's cool. The invention that the guy who invented that, that stuff's amazing because used to have to cut on the car before that. And now basically, you lay it down, just like you're doing a paint job. And then you, you pull it up. And it's, it's unbelievable what you can do it. You can do just about anything with it, so we use that all the time would still screwed up. It would look like some rang attain came in their towards up worst edges ever. Yeah. Now it's pretty it's pretty full proof yet to the stuff down a Ripcord you just you just haven't met me, and I felt that way in the beginning, but it's, it's kinda worked out kind of nice if that kind of stuff's available, you, can you can do some cool things with it the design. I did for that core. I'm talking about through the lowest Vegas nights. I, I hand sketched it was it was just crude. Hand sketch nothing finished BMW of North America given the thumbs up and do it. You always think it's gotta be like super corporate, you know, suit and tie on. It thing that's not the way it is old time. Sometimes it's, you know, just getting the job done in the timeframe, they need it. And, you know, you know how to work the materials I wish you a pitched unless you did. Did you pitch like maybe knocking one of the teeth out of the grill just to make really? But if I would have thought it at where were you then? Oh, oh, spicy picking up my fingertips that. I cut off with all that razor tape design last minute stuff is some of your best stuff, you know, when I'm when I'm painting with a brush, it's like instead of taking a left, you take a right. And it comes out way better with vinyl vinyls final. That's the problem with it true. Yeah. Trying to do my port and keep the paint stuff alive. Seems to be everybody thinks it's like the where where I am it's, it's no different than anywhere else. You've just got to sell it. No. Someone comes in. They see you're working on gold leaf job news. Like, oh, man, I liked that. And they say, yeah. Well, we could do that for you. And before you know it his trucks in airing you're doing it. I've had like I won't mention the guy's name, but he's from Chicago, and he's a very respected sign painter. He, he writes, for signed craft magazine, and I met him a couple years ago in Cincinnati at this letterheads event and came up to be any pulled me aside. And he's like let me ask you one question. How were you getting these jobs? He's. Like it's totally disappeared where I am as lake. You just gotta tell people you're doing it. That's all a doing anything different. He's amazed that I'm still hand painting trucks. This guy is like known for hand painting is known all over the place and he was dead serious Whitney. And then he just said to me, is, like, we'll whatever you do and just keep doing it. I was kinda cool, but kind of sad that there's nothing. I guess he's I don't know if he's given up on the trade or whatever I think he's given up is just, he's convinced themselves debt. The work is out there anymore. I think what's going on though. Is you're seeing a shift into that almost that weird marketing kind of mindset it sounds like multilevel marketing, the people fall into where you go out there, and you the've everything you can from someone else's like way of doing things truth. Yeah. And I think that's what people want they want that super easy step. So it's like, well, what are you doing different? Yeah. I'm just doing what I do every day and people like it so they, they come. Back and they bring their friends and that, that can answer my question. Must really one of the next questions I did have real it was like, how do you do you advertise at all? Or are you destroy word of mouth and word of mouth? I've always been word of mouth, I don't practice. What I preach my little truck letter up. But I lot, I take the Laron off and on, and that the layer on my truck, and my wife gets down on his vinyl at the moment was custom painted up and everything. And it's someone plowed into it got fixed and like paid it's and stuff for Orange County choppers. When he when a they did their new shell last year. The guy doing all the filming I got to be friends with me. Said, lucky goes, you gotta let her up your truck it wasn't lettered. He goes because I'm gonna shoot this all of TV. And he goes, you want to get maximum advertise NAT so I slapped some blind want it real quick. It does come in handy for some stuff, which is which is kind of cool. It does it does the job. But I basically don't do any advertising at all. And if you seem where might places. It's basically might places in a residential area too. But it's grandfather, it's like spudded like ten businesses there and some block in from the main road, and you really have to know where you're going. You're not passing by my shop, unless you're coming to see me, all word of mouth, basically put I probably have probably seventy five eighty percent repeat that very cool. The Miami last. Yeah. And I've had a lot of my customers are twenty twenty five thirty thirty years. They've been coming to me. I just trying treat everybody fair and do a real nice job. I like that. Like I see some of these guys, they do all kinds of cool stuff for their place, but just basically always be busy. You don't you tend not to do any stuff for yourself? That's the problem. Brad and truck painted up. You have your your truck lettered up. Well, it's let it all up. Yet. It's got it's got an old paint job on it. But it's it's there's no vinyl on it. So are you saying I got a I'm saying? You're gonna fix your trunk. I've been I've been actually thinking of I love the Astro vans. I put something up on Instagram today about it. I just seen those Mercedes mattress on vans or called the kinda got the same proportions as those. I'm getting van Jones again to get one in him things in lake well-written put some nice wheels on it, and like painted up really cool. It would probably be nuts because that no one does that where I am anyway. And it will probably get a lot of attention because I did that in nineteen Ninety-one. I didn't Astro van. I painted it purple and white. And I guess, for ninety one purple was like a crazy color for or, and what I also did was I, you know, now that I think it was kinda crazy, but I had Bill specialties make me a custom said, a wheels for the van and at the time if you guys remember, seventeens where like the biggest wheel, which is funny. Now. When you think of it, and I put seventeens on a van, and I had a corvette tires on it, but there were wide on the back and I, I had I put a role pan in it in the pipes coming through, you know the center like a like on a Porsche, it wrote around, my Wetering on my van, it was purple white, and it was maybe two inches high to the back and I got more jobs off of that vehicle than anything I'd ever own. And my name was only two inches high on time, but it was just a crazy looking truck. It was it was lowered and had billets on it. And no one seen that. That's what I'm thinking like for this, this new van. You know, it's like bring that back around recycle again, because you don't see nothing like that around here or anything,.

"This neon colors never die, such good days. So an and you've you've been through that you've watched so many trends, come and go, yeah. Now, one of the things we, we kinda talk about a lot between us as a group right now. There doesn't seem to be a really set emerging trend. A lot of it is kind of, you know, it's building off of other trends, which is a natural progression. And the seem kind of is in you're a trendy guy, you're kind of in no man's land right now. Yeah, exactly. It kinda seems like anything goes these days. I don't I don't know. There's just everybody's doing whatever. I don't know. Well, at least in sign painting, everybody's doing, like a euro looker, something like that. It's, it's, it's all over the road where I'm saying, Ken Saint, yeah, it used to be you could men if you flip open again back to sign craft. Yeah. If you showed me, a scan of any issue you can. Almost pinpoint the year that came out. Yeah. For sure for sure of that one. It's like oh yeah. That was that was, you know, early spring of ninety two. Yup. I agree. I definitely agree. Now, it's I think maybe for what I do. There's less and less guys painting all these all these guys that are doing computer graphics, in wraps, and stuff are just grabbing a lot of clip art stuff. What's available not any one thing. It's anything that they can grab so it doesn't put a timeline on anything right now. I guess we'll kind of look back at it now. And this lot of overdone stuff most of it with the with the rap graphics. I guess it will be dated, but you won't know where it's from. But you'll know. Yeah, that's when the rats were really, really big or something like that. There's some good guys doing it. But for the most part, there's not a lot of really cool stuff rap wise or anything like that. I all we do a lot of color changes that my shop, mostly, you know, Audi BMW. Mercedes kind of thing. It's all just one color solid color changes, you know, doing sat and colors and Pearl colors and stuff like that. We don't I don't do a ton of lettering reps. I prefer to just like letter it like old school. I guess so who's going to be the first guy to start airbrushing door lettering, with like plastic dip. I've done. I, I've wrapped trucks already, and then let it on top of it. I've let lettered on the, the vinyl material. So very cool. Actually, what it does, is it gets a job in the door that the guy doesn't wanna let her as truck, but then he finds that out. We'll wrap it a different color. In a letter, I'll hand painted all. And it sticks to everybody thinks it doesn't stick it sticks. Then when the guys don't want it just peels it off. I mean it's a win situation. So I get the hand letter. We make money rap in the vehicle and the guys happy all the way around. He gets the terrible off and move on when he gets rid of the car. And if he Lee. East it? I don't think they not too many guys are leasing trucks anymore. I don't know how that goes these days. But it's such a win win situation. It's fun to work on, especially like sat and colors like a sat and Pearl near usual gloss stuff. I'm how I'm having fun with all that kind of stuff mixed media stuff. Very cool. What, what is the most? What's the most popular color, most common colored? You guys need a rapid car with is the one that sticks out for, you know, per model like you get an Audi guy who's like, I'm going to have burnt orange believe it or not the most popular colors with all the cores all the high end cars. It's been a satin Pearl are not exactly a red little darker than a red. Like I'd say, like a blood red for some reason that super-popular and white or black will it or not? I, I have a lot of guys that have white cars at changed the black vice versa. And they could have any color on the planet. And I mean, they're putting out some really cool colors at this stuff. And is very few people. We just did a Lexus than he'd, he put like web recon green on it. And it's ridiculous. But that's what he wants. It's like it looks like candy, Pearl green, and it was on a Lexus. That's what we're there for Elvis, love red carpet, and peanut butter and banana sandwiches. I don't know. It's, it's truth. I don't judge anybody. I just I used to turn away, especially, like I got a lot of guys that get the new corvettes and they wanna pin stripe, and I just don't think since rightwing should be on a where vet how I handle it is instead of turning away the job. I'll stripe it. But let's say if you have a, a black vet, I'll do it in a real door gray. And I'll accent the top edge all the way down. I'll, I'll convince the person ten striping should be seen not heard we woke up to it will be there, but it's not going to stand out like you know, you don't wanna put silver on a black car. Let's say, I do a lot of it, but I don't think really vet should be striped. You know, the new ones but I get a lot of that in their last year. I think I did six or seven of them it shocked me guys wanna still straight from with the older crowd. That's buying the corvette to, you know, we see that a lot of your lotta guys want their brand new vet flamed. I mean like painted flame. It's like this. Doesn't work with flames. None. That's what they want. Yeah. It's an older guys. Buying stuff. Right. And they never could have it when you were young or now they wanna throw every trend on their dream car, and sometimes it just doesn't work. Yeah. Yeah. And if you don't do it, though, they're going to go down the street and goes somebody will do that car in. That's what my wife says, you know, and then you get a reputation like, oh I went there and he didn't want to do what I wanted. And you know, you don't want that getting around either. So you kinda like try and do it would put a little, you know make it classy as much as you can make them happy. And I've gotten a job that I didn't really like or think it was great but I do my best on, and I've gotten probably more jobs on something like that than something I thought was just I thought it was the best. It's, it's weird how it works. She net you don't know what the public lakes. Definitely, don't you know, the bottom line is you definitely gotta make money. You can't do it because you'll love it. You're gonna make money. It's still how cool would it be to be carried out on some thrown by, like? Four of your underlings. You know, just you weren't dark shades of beret, like a cigarette holder. Yeah. There you go. Like I will not pay your name on the car shoe them off. Speaking of that, once the last time you once less time, you'll lettered somebody, you know, lettered, somebody's name, not on a race car of Saint, how to regular street driver on the door underneath the window. Maybe a couple of weeks ago. It still gets done. That's awesome. That's all you're still do it. It was a little bit ago within the year. I did a lady and I take it a little, I don't know. She had this bear hold holding the balloon. She was driving a four wheel drive truck. She was in her eighties, and she bought brand new tundra. She wanted this kind of like a Grateful Dead dancing bear, but it wasn't would a balloon Unsan then she want, she wanted her name on the on the truck. And I, I was like I was kinda shot with choose at, you know, she was older and stuff in. She loved it so much. She baked me like a this big, like I don't know what it was like the nanna bread or something. We like a giant, log. And it was it was cool. Forget it that cool. Yeah. The old days meant a lot to her, obviously. Yeah. Oh, god. Yeah. But I put it on the Instagram somewhere on there. I took fix Rover. And she was just like thrilled to death. It was a lot of fun. I was like, I guess she remembers back in the day that people put their names on it. You know, she's eighty years old. It seems like if you didn't have a dad that does that now like kids like twenty-five never seen that because of vinyl and it totally disappeared in the world, it's still pretty live. Well, where I am maybe not doing as much but it's still there. I get guys come in the mid one. They want their name on, on their side, and they're they're girlfriend's name on the other. And I went let's, let's put him in the back window, no one on the on the door. It's like yeah. Are you Mary jet? It will not my. It's I'm going to death when let's just trust me just put it on the window. Nope. It's gotta be painted two weeks later. They come back on. How do I get her name off the door? Yeah. Yeah. That's that happens. It's a regular thing. I just had a guy today. Call me and he wanted to somebody airbrushed on his tank, and he on his motorcycle tank, and he's like so if you do this, I could get it off. Right. I explained to him the process of clear coating over it, and everything he's still wasn't getting it. You know after all that he decided. No, I don't wanna do that because he couldn't take it off. So I don't know what he was thinking, if it was, we knew disposable graphics, basically, I don't know what if you did that would if you open Birt's disposal graphic that'd be cool. Well, I'm there to do anything, bring it all. He saw, he saw the games that rubbed the Bank, you know, went around the corner. Peeled all the paint off. I want did that we can just love when. Yeah. The hard part is getting a really good fade with Tempera paint. Right. Yes. Absolutely. Lose your class to dip. You're talking about brain is plastic the whole tank? And if you see these students, the paint full cars with the stuff now and they get the super high gloss. At least it looks that way in YouTube. Yeah. I, I see some messy stuff happened with that, like wheels. They can't get it off the wheels. Oh, yeah. I see it. A lot around here, you, you cruise to the parking lot, you like. Oh, somebody got into place de dip. Yeah. But which kids like thickness is measured with a yardstick. Yes. Yes, it's pretty bad. If you can you can almost float out an entire character line on a car. Haida door gap. Again, against starting back at the beginning, you've worked with a variety of materials and you've earth like you've probably worked with everything at this point. Yeah. I have, what was the hardest was there, one particular like evolution in your day to day process that was harder than another probably wrapping vehicle. You know, because even though you got the material, you got it all set up doesn't mean you're going to get it on the car, the right way, where paint basically, I think, if you, you prep rate and follow the instructions you have a fair, a fair chance of doing a decent job. Rapid vehicle is like ridiculous. Some of the body lines, and it's just for me. It's, it's hard. And I struggle with that, because I mean that's gotta have some memory to it. I have a guy that does most of my stuff because he's just he's unbelievable. He has no problem is really calm person. I've never seen him not once get like mad or anything is is. A young kid. He's, he's only twenty six twenty seven years old. And he just has a knack for any just calm about it..

Thank you very much. We've only spectacular man. We were just we were talking fair. It's, it's so good to have you on it. Your guy who that Brad, you, and I have talked about this for the forever. You know thing man, we gotta we gotta get lettering, guy on. We gotta get somebody. It's gotta be somebody great. And here we are with you. You've got like us storied history. Man. You all right? Did you do what, what you'd like to or not? I will come up with one four, you don't know it is you never think of that you never think of what you did. He is just doing it. I guess if you look back, it's, it's actually pretty fun. The whole time still have employment that as an you've been you've been doing this now for what he got thirty five plus thirty seven years. I think thirty and I don't wanna make you feel all. But the first time I saw your work was in a copy of sign craft magazine that a family friend who started their own side shop. Had just kinda slid across tables, like, hey you draw. Check this out. And I think that was maybe like head v sophomore year high school, so may be eighty seven eighty eight. Right. I think right on the money. I think it was somewhere around there, I nine that I had something in sun crest, and it was like eighty seven crazy. I open my shop, man. I was. Yeah. Is eighty seven right. Yeah. We're on their eighty seven eighty eight somewhere somewhere around there. Yeah. So we're bunch of old guys is what we are. Not old experienced vintage vintage. With lots of patina exactly. Well, like I told bread before I've been doing the same thing I've been doing since I was sixteen and getting away with it. So it's. It's pretty cool. I've just been, you know, lettering or airbrushing or whatever and just kind of what I do every day, just, just got a little bit older, and maybe a little bit more responsibility. But that's about it. Silica seem deal for me. Still a lot of fun trying, you know, do better than the next day. I don't kick it up or whatever you wanna call it. You know, you see somebody else who something cool, and now with the invention of, you know, Instagram Facebook, you know, it's like we're seeing daily what everybody's doing, which is really cool, where signed craft he had a week like two months, come out. Certain person was in it or whatever, maybe seen that. Like Brad was in it. You'd only see them like once every four or five years in in there and you never knew what anybody was doing mostly your stuff just ended up. Basically, we're painting for, you know, the bunch of town surrounding you. It was where the people are saying it, not the world. Now you paint something, you can put it up in two seconds in the world, sees it. Which is that, that definitely a mind blower from me. You know after. Doing all this time crazy lake e and even with all that stuff getting posted every day, your stuff has a signature style that I get it. It's fun to watch it. You know, kind of like progress over the years, and Kennedy Angela little bit. But man, you've got a definite there, there's a DNA D or stuff that is pretty crazy. I I with I don't think so. You know what I mean? Like we look at your own stuff. You don't you just you're doing what you're doing. And when you look at everybody else's, you're like you're just doing what everybody else's is on. But maybe just a little different. But you know, as everybody tells me, oh, I know your stuff like see your stuff around. I know you did that. I, I guess it's like a signature it isn't May- maybe one time for like a week just post somebody else's stuff just to throw. He just put a bunch of vinyl up that. I will I will specific. I o make it a point every day than to go under stuff. Go man, your stuff has so much more dimension these days. Yeah. It to the right. For, for the benefit of our listeners and stuff like that. How did you get started in this whole mess? My ninth grade art teacher in school, brought in a nineteen dollar badger, airbrush. We had some Indian ink, just put it in. It was it was real. I wasn't even really like the airbrush you like cheap airbrush. It was, I can't even explain it had air cans that you hooked up to wasn't even over into the aerosol cans. Yeah. And I remember she didn't know how to use it. She just had I guess the school had in broke it out in. I did like a fan of color, like took an edge of a business cord and sprayed like yellow than an orange red than a blue all the colors that I had. And it was just like a, you know, like a rainbow color with an edge on it. I was like MS mariah's by, and that's basically, what started it in. I always liked cars and stuff. Like that, you know, any kind of hot rods and stuff like that. And that I think I think that was about the time funny cars were starting to the really crazy, like cool with Glenn and net. Quick lettering on the young blood Kirby painting them. That's where I think I really got the fire without school in high s- high school. And I wanted to do it seeing all that stuff, and I was like, man, I just wanna get at school in paint. Funny cars, because they were so cooled back who's just kind of like a like a dream, and I was lucky because Glenn waste Gerber lived in New Jersey. Some of his vehicles would run around, he, he was about forty five minutes from the so the wasn't close. But you would see vehicle every now and then that he lettered, and he's her at, like a funny core. You know, it all air he reversed the letter in the wild scripts, and all that and put pinstripe on him. And he's probably the one who started the, the crazy airbrush work on trucks out here. That's how it will start it for me. Just, just see him basically Glenn stuff. He was like who's like my idol. I just wanted to do everything like him, just want the letter funny cars, and it was cool. He's getting flown to the west coast Zun cores. He was doing chorus here, and he was painting for circus, custom paint, which is like Bob, Bob from surface was doing every major funny car in east coast, then one of his most famous one jungle gym advised thing. So I don't know if you remember any of that. Yes. Mostly everybody does. Yeah. And then like I was saying before I painted a a van because some guys I basically was airbrush. And I think since I was like, oh, ticked it up since ninth grade was crudeness everything. But I was doing what I could do in. Fully got a van job to airbrush of an and they wanted to that show. What Jay Jay Walker good times of panning out the it was like a mural of the ghetto or whatever, and they wanted that reproduced on our van, which I did. And as best as I could as crews, I could. But I thought it was great. And then from there, Bob from surface had seen vehicle clues went down to Mr. j who was next door for people that don't know, same building adore separated Mr. j in a circus. Custom pains is probably some wild times and. Mr. j was pin striping the van that I had airbrushed and Bob went next door seen it. And he seemed my name on it, and he gave me a call told me to come down went down there on a day and went down there. Glenn was lettering. The mister Budweiser wasn't Katie Byrne. Scenes core was ROY Harris's core was a white funny core with the bud man on it. He was out the lunch, and I was just, like I couldn't believe Glenn was there as you're gonna meet him and everything. So as waiting for him for, you know, a little while after I was talking with Bob thou paint when over visited Mr. j came back, he still wasn't there. He never showed up. He never came back. So he's a little crush. And I told him that, you know, so 'cause I became really good friends with Glenn a little farther down the line, but front from there, then I was just doing my painting thing and doubt, five or six years later Bob from circus called me up and asked me, if I think painted up motorcycle for him now paying it, but striped it in lettered at forum and my first funny car was Sammy. Miller's jet funny core vanishing point. And that's basically my first car ever did for them. And that started the ball rolling. I was I was kinda lucky because Glenn was in a rock and roll, and he get like the like he gets sick a lettering and stopped lettering, Hugo rock and for a while, and he was kind of he left like wake it wide open because everybody wants a cars lettered. So I was lucky 'cause I copied everything he did. I wanted to be just like them. So I just tried to end. Wait what he was doing. And that's how I got my foot in the door surface. Because I kind of copy what Glenn was doing. Probably not as good, but it was good enough at the time and the ball, just started rolling from there. So it was pretty cool. There was nothing like letter in a race car down at circus. She's a lot of fun. It was nothing like going there in the morning, I used to use the meat this was after he started out win. Hearst than he he moved to Vermont. And that's where I did might my first bunch of funny quarters, like custom body, dodge and violate Joan. I'm trying to think what I did up there on interrupt Banat. My I have. I know everyone of these cars are talking about. I studied this stuff because this is what I wanted to do. So, yes, I know well he's guard. So he bought it was, it was pretty crazy. Because the first time I went up to Vermont who's like it was probably like about four or five hour trip from here for where I was. So I have Leonard Sammy Miller's rock a car at his house. I never actually lettered it down at circus. So my first time lettering, anything for circus was up in Vermont. Drove up there, and we hit traffic and I didn't get up there at the lakes. Three o'clock in the afternoon. And, you know, now you're tired, you're excited. And Bob was really cool guy. I had met him, you know earlier did a few things and I did the twilight zone yet was the twilight zone..

"You know, I didn't really know what I wanted. I knew I wanted to know carcass. I liked the way they look. So I was like maybe a noble or something he's like, well, I don't want. I don't I don't want you to get a no, but, but you know what do you think of this? It's duster looks the same like done. Let's do. By the seventy three Plymouth, duster and had to change the starter on it before I even had a, a license to move it. My roommate used to have to help me move it for, for St. partying days, because we lived in Hollywood. I didn't have a license of anything. I couldn't drive unless somebody's in the car with. So how long did you have the duster? Ooh, I haven't a long time I probably have at ten years. I had probably two years, and then I got rear ended not badly, but enough to damage. So when I was having it repaired and repainted I bought a nineteen seventy two challenger and it was a six cylinder car. I was like, oh, I wanna on a big block. So, like, I'll build an engine, you know, 'cause I was feeling pretty cocky, so. I bought one about four forty this is back when you do that sort of stuff easily. I don't know if any of you guys are music guys, but a Don bowls of the band the germs actually drove me in his van to go, pick up this engine that we found on Craigslist, or whatever, but I thought I could build it myself, you know, took it apart. You know, sent it to machine shop and everything. But by the time it came back on engine standouts like ooh, everything looks so different than it does in the book is exploded diagram seem so much easier to the Admiral thing. And that was when a friend of mine, Ed because at this point had some, you know, a fair amount of car friends from going to like the mo-, partial or going above bitcoin stuff. So, so my friend, Ed said, hey, why don't you ask this guy? Tom for help. He's a good engine builder and he works on the street MU. And so, so I asked Tom for help still, so new doing this as a hobby didn't even occur to me that you. Like pay people for this kind of work because I was like, I'm Jay per fun. So clearly everybody else is gonna wanna do, but Tom said that it was a quirky enough request that he was willing to help. So he helped me build my first engine for that challenger and then we ended up dating and marriage. So that's nice story. But and the engine was great and a drove that I drove that car primarily, but I kept the district prolong time. I finally sold it to a couple of Nova Scotia while, that's a road droop. Thank you down picked it up and drove at home. I remember because we had to fix the heater in it because we've just bypass the heater. Thank you. Thanks. We didn't need it here in California require Nova Scotia. If the heater for them, and then they came down, and they drove it home. And I remember that thing that they were most impressed about in California's that he'll lemon tree in our backyard. If you see if you have their address, I'll send you send them one of mine. Yeah. They're, they're just like they couldn't believe it. We were like man. We throw it thrown away the bucket. You know, like, all we got to take a picture this for the kids. Drove that car from LA to Nova Scotia. Wow. That's some real faith in a car. That's, that's a killer. That's a great story and self side. I know they made it 'cause never called against. Is a lot. I mean okay, that's that's, that's a well Bill car. And again Alex, the Canadians man, there are hardy people, you grew up dodging. You know, hockey pucks and running away from polar bears. Man, you learn a move pretty quick. So you've just you international all over the place. Let's see this, the suspend Mexico to Canada, any other foreign travels while we're here, just into the twenty four hours a law in France. Very cool. Okay. That's a bucket list. I've been to Daytona Daytona never going to France. I'd like to go to that one. It's a it's worth doing. I heard it's a spectacle in itself, the inside of the infield is almost oblivious, to that. There's a race going on. Is it that way? I saw Germans with no pants on. Teams are developing in this episode. But they have like a big gigantic carnival in, in the infield area. I guess you'd call it an infield area. And it's a it's a whole spectacle of itself. Yeah. Now it's great. You can watch the racing from the ferris wheel, which is pretty spectacular. And it's a deal. So what do the French call the tilt? Oh world. Oh, I don't know. That's all I wanna know now. It's gotta go. Yeah. Clearly does the only way to find out is to go. Yeah. Yeah. That'd be great. I'll come back, and I'll be I'll have all of an article written for someone shop in that around the guy fifteen hundred words on the infield. That LeMond podcasts at Lamont from the tilt. Oh world. Great. Oh, we should do that. This would be awesome. Okay. So you started off your career year, you know, working composites and things like that. What how did you make the jump from basically working with your hands to working with words? Well, I don't I've always been a reader. That's something I've done my whole life. And so when I was at school, even when I was at school for art, I was taking a lot of English history classes and stuff. So I've always been able to write I would say that I was a decent fabricator. I wasn't spectacular, and I was very good at sort of interfacing between the race teams and figuring out what they needed in helping them, sir. Translate that to the other fabricators. So even while I was. At the carbon-fiber place. I was sort of moving from being in the in the back shop, to being more of a front desk person. It was a lot less itchy paid better. And so from there, wasn't a huge jump to go into PR when there was a position available at this smaller the our firm, and I learned a lot there again, a lot of writing a lot about deadlines a lot about what sort of both the magazines and the brands need from from a story, and I was always extremely jealous of the people who are on the magazine side. 'cause PR is hard. I don't know if any of you guys have ever done PR, PR able get they get a really bad rap. They work so much harder than we do on the truism side. And I, I was really getting frustrated of sort of having to kind of it'll smile and right things and see them show up with some, you know, with the byline of somebody who had been sort of patronizing and dismissive to me at the actual event, and I was like, how do we get that job since? Me. That guy's job. I be patronizing to. And, and there, there was an opening at hot rod magazine. I I was. was I don't know. You know, there's no way right? Like there's no way it'd be you don't hired her magazine. But the sort of like shyly asked fiber about it at some event that we were both at, like all, you know, would it be weird. If I applied for that he was, like he's like, I've been trying to get you to apply. Why don't you apply? That would be great. So then yeah, so he gave me that job and. It was just fantastic. Like a real dream job. That was such a good team. So much, fun, working with everybody was there at that point in the magazine, and I just learned a ton. That's also part in people. We try to do with the podcast. We try to give people kind of a lesson, something that can take away from this, and one of the recurring themes that always comes up is in this industry if you want to get anywhere it just really seems to boil down to asking someone. And somebody's always willing to give you a shot. Yeah. I mean, I think of, I think getting some skills is valuable, but and bravery will take you a huge amount of the way most people are ready to help you, but they're not going to think of it on their own. You've got to basically put yourself out there and say, like this is what I what I respect you. How can I? How can I get to this place and they're usually, like, here's what I did right in every willing to, to at least give you that kind of that, that opportunity and it's, you know, in my experience. It's always been, you know, it's really. Up to you to screw it up for yourself. Yeah. I've been there and done that I I've done the PR and marketing site. So, yeah, I'm pro PR and marketing people. I, I mean there's, there's lousy ones as there are in everything. But there, there's some really great wants to mandate like when you meet somebody who does that job. Well, they just make your job so easy. It's unbelievable. It seems it seems like especially in the hot rod side. It's, it's more the exception than the norm. Like it's there's so many good people. It's crazy. It's such a small community to I mean, everybody practically knows everyone else. Like brad. And I've had this conversation, a million times when we first met, we were shocked how many people we knew between the both of us. And we got to a point where we figured we could each started one end of the Sema show. And just collect the people. We knew in meet in the middle, and we probably be able to know every person that the other person new connected via someone else. Oh, yeah. It's not like what is it? It's not like six degrees of separation. It's Like like. point three degrees of separation. There's always one person that's that somehow became family with someone else. Wandering through the south really, it's weird. Someone's got a cousin somewhere, but. So if, if you were to give advice to if you were to be able to go back in time and give advice to a just starting out, you can stupid questions, but I love asking this, because always good to get that introspective view. What advice would you give yourself to kind of get to where you are now avoiding any pitfalls? Well, I mean, it's, it's a hard one, right? Because you know what I mean I know what I think I would say, but maybe that would have been other pitfalls. If I had done it that way. But the one thing that I would tell myself is that most of the people that you think are doing a much better job than you are not. And so you can like almost everyone is faking it as much as you are. So in one way or another. And so there are a couple of things where I may be held back or wasn't super brave in particular related to, to driving to getting behind the wheel or, or being on track where I was like everybody else else's good at this, and they're going to judge me for being bad at it. And now looking back on it, and I might know actually they were just ballsy are like they just it is went for it, but they actually didn't know anything more than I do or did do kind of wish I could go back and be like just a little bit braver about trying something new and being bad at it because it was very aware every time that I did something like that, that I was sort of the only woman doing it and felt like I had a lot to represent. So I didn't wanna mess anything up ever, and it would be nice to go back and maybe have a little bit less than that. On the other hand, I have knock on wood a. We're all dog owners, so we, we know the minivan Crafter. But if I had, if I had done that, you know, maybe I would have had more crashes or. Difficulties in a different way..
