There have been nearly four thousand incidents of hate crimes at least reported hate crimes in comparison to the previous year. Were there are twenty six hundred for the entire year. I don't know if those numbers are correct but that seems like a significant rise. Yeah since the start of the pandemic we have definitely seen from different sources that there has been an increase in reported incidents with Racial bias against asian americans. But there's also a difference in in gender right in the way that women experienced these hate crimes and incidents versus the way that men are experiencing them. And i want you to parse you some of that data for me because one of the things that i had read in this appropriately wrong and i think there's why there's gulf in how the media is reporting the incident with the data actually says but is it not true that women are experiencing or at least a reporting more incidents than men can parsi data. Sure yeah this. Is i think an important point in the current moment of how we understand both race and gender and the violence that is associated with both so we know that the atlanta shootings in march that that was a white gunman who opened fire on a on an asian owned spa and or asian on spas and that violence was for sure a function of both race of the women's national origin and gender.

"six" Discussed on The Round Six Podcast
"Done before. How do we take? And that's why I love J. F. Style that revere I love reveres I build a Rivera. Some a lot of people still talk about that.

We don't burn out. Video citizen retires inside of the bill. Kogo yeah they. Also this year. They were like her nose skid inside Cobo Hall Jay Got Canadian. You're at that level though and like you compete at the moment you you've won the big trophy. Yeah there okay on your side. What what goes into it especially now at awards. What's going through your mind? You don't just build a car like that. They just have a cool car that that car had a purpose to we. We went for Detroit. Be Renault's been win We were great His TV show about it wants to watch it You know but you put you put a lot of heart and soul in it and Mike. I talked about earlier when you have years invested in this you you you get personally you know excited about especially when you make great you walk up on stage and your your heart's beating a little bit faster and everything And there's only one winner and let's be fair. It's it's a subjective award. It's it's it's not objective. It's not who finished across the finish line. First so I after having built cars for trophies like this for eighteen years or whatever it's been I think as my personal belief is a step back from it build the car you want if a wins trophies. Great but you're not gonNA always make the judges or the public or everybody else. Happy with what you built but focus on making yourself happy and the rest of the follow And the level. Just be competed. No four and at sixteen years ago in this industry. A Lot's changed sixteen years And so you know there. People are going to keep pushing it and they're going to be spending more money than they did the years past because that's how it goes and so people get really upset when they don't win it happens but I what am I remember my dad meeting with a roomful of people to help we ran for Detroit and everybody was super bummed out. We didn't win and my dad just said but I've got the car wanted at the end of the day and that's what you gotTa do and so I think everybody expected him to get really upset about it and honestly he. You sure we would have loved to win. Yeah that's why we went there But you've got to build the car you want again in the day. You know you gotta be able to open the garage every day and go out and look and we still do that. I you know the car Tim. Mentions over in the museum over there and for whatever reason I've been here for a couple of years to see it but it's still tickles me to go over there and look at you and I my kids when echo hop in the Fort Orange. Sit in the back seat all the time. And you know so bill the car you want to win some trophies. Great but you know it just. It's it's a subjective thing and there's a lot of things it's rolling the dice when you go out there and do it so you will you know it. It requires you to again. Build THE CAR. You want if it wins. That's right on the you know the new later on though. But it's that you're left with that weird perception thing were like you're hanging onto that car. Which is really cool if you go to sell that car. You're caught in that weird zone. Where if you personalize it too much. How do you get rid of it? If you find a buyer forty nine tenths of somebody who wants that car but like you have to go to an auction you. You've been on that site to. You seem that that weird. I don't see dogs or used car sales with. Yes the one thing. I don't like your hard work. Your blood sweat and tears. Everything you've put in this car disallowed. They're like well that cars well bought or oh his car when they say this car is three million dollars invested into and you're watching it tick up to two hundred forty thousand dollars stolen the perception of the public. Who doesn't understand any of this going on looks at it goes okay? Three million dollar investment for what two hundred thousand John. Charlie Elizabeth has a great weird philosophy about our says the one car. How much money you maybe. It was a two million bill when I got sold for three hundred thousand dollar car still making money. I look at it as far as losing money. But you don't really build these bars to make money right now. It's Kinda like chasing the Kentucky. Derby many people spend a lot of money breeding. Horses Training Gram going on his racist. Some never have been make the qualified guess right. Even the beginner races are sixteen races. Interesting bloodline out there. It doesn't matter if they hit. Yeah then there's the these go up. I know shops that they win the rigor in their shops of blown up and I know she guys that have plunged after river because they put so much on the line and they just couldn't recuperate. I know of our got held in the shop. I walked out of awards and was not J. F. In the congratulations on the award and they turn around live customer and they go now. Maybe he'll pay his blanking bill and they held onto the car for eleven months before they let him leave. Because it wasn't painful now so shops business but I've known cars places that it did not help their business because then you get into a thing. It's a good question for you. I build cars. That's one disgusted always awards. I've never really debuted for A. We did go after the custom or the year. That you were there I'm going to do that again one time but I mean the you mean the year that it was the title ward in automotive when when beige his baggy his sheet data in baggy turns around to him. So that's not the correct picked yet. That was the year then they split the award Sacramento. Wow won't sue back. Detroit is appoint needs to the AD needs to be said but Detroit that blow of Your Business and make you scared to buy. Have a builder built by a driver. So that's what I'd like to drivers now sued so fun. Are they have a bill? Addressing confusing thing happened for me as it went I went from building my own personal kaiser's when United Sima Went from Bill. Knock car in. That car was different enough that it made a couple of magazine covers instantly so for our demographic at our small Larrea I went from me enabled to rust repair. Somebody's seven Camaro to all of a sudden. Don't take your car to J. F. to your hair down under systematic. I probably TEN YEARS OUT OF BUSINESS. Growth by being lucky enough to have my car feature cover to magazines. Who's really young and the really high end clients that you would like to attract. We'll come and see because you have built a reputation. You have got an you having. You're not anyway so you really really narrowed your field of US far as your ability to work for evil. That's probably why the wagon ended up being my personal car again and The Riviera was initially never meant to be rendered. Dr Just meant to be an all out ashfall to solve two hundred mile an hour car and I still think I've got itching my ass to go and do two hundred miles an hour. That car gotta be some kind of make it happen. And somebody'll put thirty hours. I need to call saw find across monsters then. I could probably do that for sure. Could make the first rid. First ridler winner to do two hundred I do think I do think this year as a competitor and Anna Ends Observer. Because I think more so than anything I haven't missed going to Detroit for the last seventeen years sixteen years I think in as an observation. I think they're really really slit in the throat. I think they chose a car that didn't go out and promote our industry. It shows a car that months later was at an auction just getting onto off car failed miserably at auction and who knows if that's lack of promotion of the car promotion of cars ability to win the award or the fact that the collector car market just thought. Maybe that wasn't the right car. Maybe they thought it was arguing. I don't know what one of those things are. What combination of those things it was but I definitely wasn't ambassador of the Industry and Ambassador Award. I took it very seriously. All migrated cars to promote them to get kids involved to sort of show the cars off to do the tour or whatever you choose to do. Whether it's a couple of shows couple outdoor shows you know the drill and very well. Yeah if if you're an ambassador to the industry then you really should be doing your work as lassiter to make sure that the mystery still here in twenty five years wrestling so if you win one of the biggest ords industry I would thought and this is the way I looked at it when it was my turn that you're promoting industry out there and do your work. Don't just take the trophy and save cash out some random auction and Phoenix into Monday. Can Incense overly loosens perfectly clear so having walked the walk. I was fairly pissed off to see a car that district that big trophy car that I felt was visually imperfect as far as some of the finish work a lot of finish work and to see that things sort of fall away now less than a year later. It's just yes failed to do. Your jobs added industry and after after you won. I mean that Riviera was beaten. Have ruined on. You were really excited. I'm doing donuts. Not My kids from school. Never Show car gang with Mir underneath it because there is so many rock chips. Rubber Mark said scrape some speed bumps. But that's the thing you you're doing in that I look. I always believed that. That's what a car should do. So so when it was my turn to be the ambassador I was given a really unique opportunity because I could be the first guy that actually proved proved that could be done. And that's why we're at the on across the lake. That guy's not gonna Pussy Foot around admire that I I'm more I'm more blown see cars at aren't just trailer Queens. And you walk against Michael. It's all shipped up headlights frosted. Yes yes yes driving the crap out of this thing. I love that. That's definitely something. So we've talked. Before did devalue the car by making an imperfect or did I add value to the car to proves that it increased some pedigree. I looked at the chew edit value to an entire industry. That's a big statement. But I mean I'm not GonNa you know me. I don't. I'm not big on hyperbole. Must have making a joke. Then I think you're right how you're saying. I think you did a lot more than realize hurting people's feelings I can tell. Ya likewise I mean. Does I thought the next few years people would have to prove cars. Also drive just won the award. Go DO YOUR HOMEWORK. Grow Up and watch me. One of those guys are GonNA trump drive the company in one name one. Since that's done that Davin nothing. Never mind we'd nobody's ever really seen that Cadillac Dr drew so maybe maybe the collector of car market is spoke freely and said. Hey if that's if that's your approach to the industry here's your paycheck. It isn't going to be the millions that you in Boston. 'cause you didn't add value.

He's he's so loyal on socal but yeah I just still dry every the day and you know trying to keep the wheel line fresh and but not kill myself trying to make a forty page catalog dog I wrestle with that a little bit. You know I think I I've done a decent job at keeping the designs James Contemporary. I'm not too busy. But and not just as vice spoke broke rip off of a torque dressed and that was kind of my whole motivation to start the wheel line like I saw the pro. Oh touring thing coming on strong. And nobody in the hot rod industry really catering to it and I draw three-piece style hr wheels and then poor customer and get sticker shock when they call h. r. e. for the wheel. I designed they thought Shit. There's there's a void in the marketplace here and it's just it's been working so so just keep doing what I'm doing and like I was teasing about the door handles and do more products that too crazy but and Canada almost like a lifestyle brand but not quite right on bullying me. And you don't want to be an alternative lifestyle and not that. There's anything wrong with that. There's anything wrong with that now with you and and I think that's that's a smart move in this industry. I think it it really has taken a turn from being just cars to becoming a whole lifestyle encompassing for like a monster and Kaiser Age in guys younger than US definitely. Don't WanNa wear some some garish street. Rod Show t shirt with forty colors and a fifteen by fifteen private thirty two Ford on it and sure they do I- i- younger than us. I know there's a group that loves yes. Ah Yes yeah bless them but So I just that's kind of how I think in in Kinda motivation. I'm not trying to be the biggest trying to speak different and cool L.. I and be recognized for that doing a good job and thanks man. Thanks I mean on especially coming from you know how I figure anything cruel loved one of the Guys WanNa do. Let's see it's all because I managed to plan my entire career but I just hanging out with the right people that end up in photographs with them. That's how I planned. My whole thing is accidental fame. I knew there was a night in Vegas to fall into a van with the right person. Them and walk them. Here's here's here's the weird part about this industry like you and I are conversations literally started with just a phone call. I was just that whole. Hey how's it going man and cool cool so you're doing this and that was really cool and we're getting off the phone with you and going do. There's there's a guy I always admired. Whose work I dig league and while we had some really cool stuff in common and as you come up in this industry you realize almost all of us have some thread that ties it together beyond just the cars? It's kind of like we're we're all in this for some say a higher purpose but it's like we're drawn to this because we all have something similar underneath the car thing and like like with you. You're one of those guys. Were your proof that okay. Usually I think almost everybody we've ever talked to in the industry starts with BMX and then into the cars. It's crazy there's a whole lot of them. Oh yeah it was so huge in the eighties. That is almost unavoidable audible. But it definitely set a tone for me early on and I'm doing it still today and in fact almost exactly ten years this week since I got back into it and it Kinda took over my life so many bikes now I think six right on. Isn't that crazy. So like if you could go back in time and beat like twelve year old you and go get six of these bikes and a twelve year old. Would freak the hell out. Yeah the free of advice. Yeah somebody else was saying on an earlier pod you know as your first thing you could customize and and I did you know I I would gravitate towards the brands with you know good branding and and cool logos. And I always fixated on the way everything looked on bike and everything about it. And then the same thing with skateboards which was even more or design. centric got into that noise just fixated on the graphics and picked out the Board based on the graphics the branding and brand recognition you know the brand I thought I aligned with things like that and that's what I'm I guess I'm creating creating now you know. Isn't that funny the BMX thing It is just like crack cocaine. Ah Relieving your youth. God He could still do that. And I I envy you for that. My my body clapped a while ago. My body was like no. You did enough of that junk in the past. I Dr wondered like Casey you start off and like I said you're drawn to stuff based on the design which is how I always looked at it. I'm working with Philip. BMX PLUS and stop at an ad like skyway bikes. Whoever was setting up their demo? Bikes was brilliant color theory. They knew how to present up like yeah and like today. I mean if you go online if you go oh while finally to the point where I think I can afford a Haro freestyler or to get my hands on. The Red Line are L.. Twenty two right yeah. Those costs as much as a really decent used. Suv Yeah Yeah it's crazy. It's not a buddy of mine purchased an ano US Haro freestyler still in the box and it's just so yeah it's so crazy the money and he's got that and then he's got a fully built one and I always look at that and I'm like man. What did I do wrong in my life? Just imagine you know and I remember I built a bike and it was all happy an amber. My Dad's sold that bike and I moved out and he's the guy had a garage sellers soldier bike. I got thirty five bucks for stop. I'll give it to you and you're going. Oh I only celery that for me. Old Man right at he just go. I could probably sold one of those analyst Mushroom Room Grips for thirty five bucks. It's stupid crazy now and but again it's it's that nostalgia thing and the bike side that I think works for us to provide a secure on the car side so it's so weirdly intertwined and and I love it when you're at a show and you see a really wicked street rod pickup with restored. BMX biker to in the bed yeah vendor torn. Which one do you look at so weird fact from my car do so no okay well? Let's touch our network visit great question.

People overlook those cars all the time. But they don't realize the entire grill and the entire tail Benzel entail light panel and most of the dashboard or castings not stampings and not plastic either. Their castings way like forty pounds. Nuts and a the bumpers are tucked into the quarters and front fenders from the factory. All kinds of really cool things where you could tell. GM spent way more money building. This car and the senior designers were working at Buick. You know after they'd done twenty years of Chevrolet and I'm Chevy Guy true true but it's just it's a neat car and it wasn't a Chevelle which made it unique and so I started reaching out to all my friends the business and Hotchkiss and BF goodrich. Bear breaks all jumped on along with my good friends Crystals from Roman Jared High Hancock. Who lent their mechanical ability? Tell me throw this thing together. And then I stumbled onto incredible deal on L. S. two and got that put in the car with a six speed and hard just ripped superfund.

"I spent six years building that took six hours to take it apart and you know that's the side. Nobody i think people are afraid to talk about it. It's weird to jinx myself thing yeah. I did that too. I did at the one i was was like man. I made fifteen thousand miles never got a dating and drive down the one oh one out to my girlfriend. Yeah i get it was a landscaping truck in front of me.

The front wheel kicked it up into the door takes off the bottom of the door and the rocker. Where are you going to do. I just kept thinking all the time. I was gone. I parked his car so it doesn't get a danger. I was like looking back back in the thing. It'd be so much better to take yeah. It's a weird perspective thing. I think that's what cars are great for that perspective well experts six years versus six hours. Whoa oh yeah and it's and it's also going back to the history thing that you're talking about. I do like that about cars. So there's a guy i knew name. Courtney hallel used used to be the right and <hes> he he is the guy who gave me my first real break because win win. <hes> my civic was done. We took it to the sever ties show and <hes>. He approached me saying you know hey. I've got a car here in word starting starting this import magazine we'd like to shoot it would be great and then eventually you know we became buddies. Whatever i was house in california about a year before he passed and and we were talking about <hes> what car was talking about somebody's car and or one of his cars i said man. Aren't you worried about selling like doesn't that uh-huh kinda bother you or whatever that somebody else is gonna drive. You're like man. We're just custodians for these think. They're always going to be somebody else's. They started as somebody else's. They're gonna end. Is somebody else's that's okay. I liked that blew my mind snake teaming recording like yeah of course you gotta be real zanu about it. You know my so. I've got a two thousand nineteen out there right. Nobody's driven that thing but me and people at the dealership and it came from henderson nevada that that alone is a part of a story but someday i'll sell it or i'll give it to my my kids or something bill dry fit and who knows we drive it for a long time. They'll bring their kids that bat truck. Mike go on either one of their kids or get sold off and some guy's gonna take it dump it in the weeds or do something cool on and now how funny would that be twenty years down the road that that trucks got that his yeah. There's a one and done being done someplace where yeah they're. They're building nineteen silverado. They're going look at these trucks. Yeah like like like my eighty one being and built in that you know hundred mile square radius. How crazy is that shit like. It's it's it's insane so i that's the the thing that started to appeal to me. Was the story of the truck was the history of where these things came from and what they are talking to joe about it when he first started you know doing and stuff with the magazines talking about his comfort food comparison and how these structured you know that for him. That's why he loves seventy. Three's not seventy four cologne them. Don't get me wrong but it's all about seventy. Three's and you know that's what it is for me those stories.

"It apart to see if they could figure out where the failure was and they learned it was actually a four point eight that they had jeez and i think people are sleeping on ios four point eight motors. I think those four point eight as they're not you know they're not sexy six liter or five point three but you can get cheap and and at at the end of the day you still got. I mean look. I'm not a huge horsepower guide. I you know i wanna have three four hundred horsepower. Whatever and drive in but it's really neat yeah i don't oh i don't eat seven hundred eight mail from too. I mean look for me. I for me personally. I've had those kind of vehicles and i've been through that part of my life and now i think about you know <hes> there was a window in my life where i was an editor of a motorcycle magazine and started getting into motorcycles and one of the members i group said look you have. My daughter was like six months old at the time. He's like look at young kids. Don't do it. Don't get into this stuff. Just watch from afar do what you need to do but don't start writing and i started thinking about that with higher horsepower stuff and all that i'm like i don't want to put something into a into an embankment got kids who are relying on me. I'd rather in either. Have my three or four hundred. Horseback is just fall for me. I know it's not for everybody but for me. It's fine every day. I'm amazed at the carts gotta warranty. I have a four hundred plus horsepower car. Every day. I built my first car and that sucker you know haven't had over four hundred horsepower car was almost undrivable with load up a traffic lights. It sucked <hes>. I get into this thing literally. Push a button and i pick off and think about it. I like that much and it's but he had done you get well. Why didn't you get a healthcare <hes> well a i have a house to pay for. You know if i could live in the hell ah yes i am. I think about it but like they start thinking seven hundred plus horsepower in every week. There's some guy new online. We've got eleven hundred horsepower out of it got thirteen hundred fifteen or gone. Where would you ever use it. Well the the argument for me the more horsepower putting on the more likely to break it and so you've dumped jumped a bunch of money into it to begin with and now you are going to be continually dumping money into it. <hes> you know i liked crews my stuff so really do the educational burnout but i don't have a reason to put together a whole bunch of horsepower. You're not run at the track every week trying to last week's time no no and i have friends who do that and i remember. I remember back in the days. I had a buddy with a four door civic. I think it was a ninety two and he put <hes> hundred shot of nitrous on it and he was going to california for a show sided to hit it leaving one of the stops and you know put his piston through the block you know but back then that was that that was a totally people were figuring out six like they're figuring out lss now and figuring out other stop and i just never have like a lot of money for something that i drive every day because i still drove my civic all the time. I didn't have like a spare car for the longest time and you know i i think i think that's the difference if it's not your driver but as much worse bahraini one st once or twice whatever whatever makes you happy for me. It's the build. It's working on suspension ventured off. It's making low making drag. That's the stuff that that gets me up in the morning. When i'm working on a car they're standing so so..

"I always wanted a seventy Khuda but the car that I really always wanted was a sixty nine Camaro and so when I was is that my first base in Georgia <hes> one of my buddies that <hes> I was stationed with he lived about forty five miles away in a little town called Albany. Georgia was just northwest of Valdosta where we were stationed and his brother older brother was a hot roderick well Marvin my buddy had fifty five Chevy <hes> three twenty seven on Ramp four-speed car that was it was gutted and it was kind of like a his own version of the two lane blacktop car so it was really fun car will his brother had had some fifty five chevys and he also said a forty Willie's but he also had a sixty-nine Camaro that I saw a picture that Marvin had showed me of some of his brothers cars I saw a front fender of sixty nine Camaro and I was like hey who's cars that is what belongs to my brother brother <hes> Leslie Names Leslie and he might sell it and so we went up there one one time and he said he also save two for nine hundred bucks and it ran a drove. I brought it home did a bunch of work to it. Well like anything else I wanted to bill more of a hot rod out of it and so I built a really stomping three Oh two little small block and put an twenty-one in it put a twelve bold and it was some gear and <hes> I was is on an air force budget and so I remember when I ordered the Pistons for that thing T._R._W.. Was the only company Made Pistons at the time for the three two and they're really heavy slugs. I think three Oh I think T._R._W.. Was the manufacturer that made him for Chevrolet back in the day. Hey I think <hes> but they were <hes> twelve and a half to win Pistons so I ordered them and it took five months to get him <hes>. I don't think T._R._W.. Are At that time Hi my order them through summit T._R._W.. I don't think there were any available in they had to wait till they made the next run so I put the motor together and we wound up having a mill a bunch off the top side of the dunks domes so thick and gave us opportunity to mill down compression down a little bit but put the motor together fired it up in the dorm parking lot. It was getting really close. My Sister Kathleen was getting married and she was stationed. She was an air force as well. She was stationed off Air Force space in Omaha and <hes> so I needed to get this Camaro done so I could drive it from Valdosta to Louisville where I was from and my dad had already rented a <hes> a motorhome. We're going to drive a motorhome from Louisville to Omaha like anything else. You know. You're scrambling to get the thing done. I got the thing where it was running pretty good. I didn't have money for an exhaust. So what I did was I had some thrush. Turbo are some thrush header mufflers and I bolted onto the headers and just so I get on and off base because of course you could drive car like that would open headers. They wouldn't even let you on base so it was super loud so <hes> kind of got myself prepared and ready to go on the morning that I was GonNa leave it was it was still dark and I wanted to get an early start at it because I knew from Valdosta to Louisville was about six hundred and fifty miles I can make it in twelve hours at that time speed limits fifty five and they police I at pretty heavily so kind of fear to take about twelve hours so I go out to start at my car batteries dead push it into neutral push over to my buddy Bryant's spot. He had a Mustang he had a seventy one Mustang Mustang mach one and I pushed it over next to his car. <hes> he never locked his car. I got into got got his jumper cables out and jumper my car and so says the thing lid off. I was gone took off. <hes> probably made it to Macon Georgia. I feel tank <hes> that had to fill up and so I'm thinking to myself. I'm Kinda out in the middle nowhere here. If I shut this thing off it may not ever start back up again. I don't know what's up with the batter. The Battery Ed did sell it and I'm going to have to ask somebody for a jump and undoing have cables so I let the thing run so I got gas never shut it off. GOT INTO ATLANTA. Never shut it off. You know getting gas. It was like Nascar pit stop. He's just barking and so eventually I made it all the way home and it was dark <hes> when what's going through bowling green it was just starting to get dark and I go to click the wipers on on wipers didn't work and it started raining so I'm driving in the right hand lane <hes> basically almost hydroplaning and the semis our honking at me and I'm not going fast enough. I cannot see I am looking through a a whole about as big as a quarter in the corner of the windshield. That's just were I could see through it and <hes> it was pretty frightening. Because it's a freeway that was dark. I didn't really know it very well and you know you're you're cruise along the next thing you know you're you're hydro co planning just keep the wheel pointed straight and don't tap the brakes so I finally made it home and <hes> pull into the driveway and shut the thing off and I'm thinking you know I should see if this thing starts back up again just to see if it would and Blam damn thing right back off again. It probably would a lid off in making when I got my first field thing when I've got my I feel old but I didn't know that car was so loud inside in a you didn't really realize until I got at home and my dad said Hi and it was just like I could barely hear him. It was just like my ears were just ringing that was twelve straight hours of just about open headers because the mufflers were right up underneath my seat but it made it and <hes> we got it home and after we got back from Omaha Kathleen wedding first thing I did was I put an head a an exhaustive put on it so the ride home was substantially better so but I miss that car and it was it needed some help and back then they didn't make a lot of their reproduction parts that they make now but I really wish I still had that car at a lot of good memories in that car yeah now that was one of them had many many other cars the thing about being in the services that you get an opportunity to come through some really cool cars 'cause there's always somebody in your shop or somebody in your dorm that just got orders and they've got to sell their G._T._O.. Or they've got to sell their roadrunner owner or and so you get these cars at just great deals and you'd have them for about four months only to find out that you're the guy with the orders now and you've got to sell your car so there were some really cool cars at one time I had sixty five G._T._O.. Sixty five months <hes> really cool cal volkswagon at my Camaro. You know this was within about two and a half year span. That's cool stuff but unfortunately it really never got a chance to keep any of it and you still got cool stuff. I mean come on as well. Yeah I mean but a lot of that stuff is the stuff ahead for a long time I mean you are you. Are The car guy that the Camaro I mean come on the Camaro. Is you the tell people about the Camaro. This is cool car this kind of ties in with the previous commercial the sixty nine Camaro well when I got back from Korea we had stored my Camaro in a storage place. <hes> I rented a I think it was a ten by twenty storage <hes> thing and so the car stayed in there for the year when I was in Korea and I got back and <hes> took it for you know some drives and it just the harmonic balancer was having an issue <hes> were the end of the crankshaft had had there was an issue at the end of the crankshaft the <hes> the size was slightly under so the harmonic balanced would slightly rock on it and what happened. was you know at that R._P._M.. P._M. would start spreading the key way in it and then we'll get to the point to where it would wanNA pitch the balancer and I knew I was Kinda screwed because I was going to have to drive it from Louisville because I had orders out here to California and Victorville and that was twenty two hundred miles. I knew the car was not gonNA in a make it or if it did it's going to be a disaster trip and I didn't WanNa risk it had a lot of people really hit me up to buy that car and so I wound up selling it so I got out here to California thinking well with the money that I got from the sixty nine. I'm GonNa buy me another sixty fifty nine. I'll buy rust-free when this time and so looked around and I wasn't patient. I should have saved up a little bit extra and bought the car that I wanted and <hes> one of the guys at my shop was a big second Jen Camaro guy and and he had seventy one he had just got back from Germany and he had his seventy-one rally sport over in Germany with them so it cruise the Autobahn and he had a blast in the car he got back to the states and he wanted to buy another one but he wanted a seventy s s three ninety-six Camaros so he knew that he had to get rid of one or the other so the seventy-one came up for sale drove it in Effingham. I'll just you know all by this car and I'll just cruise it for a little while until my you know the the sixty nine Camaro that I want start driving now started really liking the car <hes> as far as handling and comfort it was a better car than my sixty-nine and <hes> I enjoy driving but when I when I buy vehicle I always start a book on everything Long Island that way. If anything happens to the car I've got all the Vin numbers and I've got all the information you know in case you know we need to go looking for the car. I can give it to the police and go here's the number of the car and here's everything so I always start a book. Well I get out there with this one and got my notepad and you know what I'm looking at the tag and one two four eight seven l five.

but he really got me fired up about the lettering the graphic part of it which was so awesome and then it's it's off in life when years later you see people you get a thank them for that and then become your friends again that's even better you know and then you know through chipping through through mattel's rather stuff it's been just i mean it's been a blessing kenny and i owe you so much and i you know i i i sing your praises whenever i can thank you carson i'll tell you have some years twenty fourteen i was honored to be inducted into a hall of fame down there are lots and a riding my bike be talking about a a wonderful it is to be honored by you're here's the courage to me that there's an even higher honor the mad at modest when somebody said she never even met comes up to you there's no you inspired me to get into the painting is sort of the lightning or whatever and that to me is is the highest honor and a spire somebody to follow their passion like we did carson yeah knows all that's for sure it was all passion driven that's for sure so somebody else you could jump the joy that i gotta i gotta jump back you were you were a huge inspiration in me doing what i've done for a living m back to a different articles you have not run magazine maria a couple of really cool cartoons or the or just top and then when you when you airbrushed yeah the guy in the chopper and the side of the van yeah yeah that was that was that was a huge deal is like oh god when you're already i'm gonna do this stuff it was but i i gotta tell you the the v credit for the concept of doing that goes to the one and only terry cook who was a picture of coq crap when i met him and then eventually editor of hot rod magazine and that was his concept which terry's just a a genius and amazing creative guy himself when he called me up and he says hey chevy gave us this this van is somewhat a paint a willie borsch is funny car or you'll altered on the side using the wheels of the van is the will of the race car in and i i knew immediately that what's gonna be dynamite nobody's ever done that before any says what should we do on the other side by we put a guy on the chopper upper you know yeah anyway they brought he brought cussing over to my house and orange action then got out there was someone shot and you're brushing unpainted out than a a course see the end of the story is that a ghost vehicles were a a on loan from gm after year and they took it back and crushed it oh no oh my god oh yeah when i say i'm a museum that could yeah but she's what michael cohen cut those panels off that thing in the middle of a crushing it yeah and they're the ones you did like the needle magneto which i leonard fournette like a dad now that i'm talking aerial aerial real slough though calculated three miles per hour i have one that i love that drawing forty two this guy got sandbags in a witness weathervane on it and in any other one will car craft illustration you do the car crash car with the front amount of blower vegas with the wheel pods in a blower where they were talking about how our funny car's gonna go faster and they gave it to you is like okay come up with some concepts that was just say a pin in any drawing new color nothing was just yeah of the top three quarter view oh my gosh cia actually a needle magneto was was way more ahead of his time that bagged up in ito a there's a whole bunch of features on the flop all aero dynamic call that would come to a come to pass i mean they didn't have a rough patch is asking them to bomb spin have a lot of stuff and undergo gendered legally insane we own it but in the end the day a multi a stage where we know is back but that again goes back about cashman you a disaster write a story about funny car aerodynamics dynamics and this was in a prompt early seventies there when they didn't have their dynamics really figured out and if you remember in southern california out in orange county one night bob pick it got down there at his car after you took off it's a little over the finish line lights and anyway so bob wrote this article about.

"But it it was still the pink color. And I think it might have had different like when Steve hat would still want. Steve did it to get out of flat hood, like stack sticking out of the hood or something like that. Yeah. This hours to win with the rally stripes up at having like that. That's, that's the one that I remember seeing the idea for in. It's like man. I love that idea. So no matter what I do I think I'm gonna end up doing stripes at have that. But I also like the idea of how I used to do the ring brothers logos on the hood and just because that motor has a boss motor and pro charger, and all that it's like, well, it's gotta have some lettering, on the hood that sale that stuff, you know. It's our goal. I'm excited about that project because it's not going to be a simple, just two stripes, down it, and maybe looking make them look pixellated like those barcode things, but it's like no, it's going to be technically. Correct in that aspect. But yet, it's also going to have some boss motor lettering. And like pro charger something or other. And I really don't know at this point. I don't know what it's going to look like, but I just know it needs to be wild, because it needs a reminds you of the, the nineties pro streetcar thing. You know, it's, it's gotta have my nineties graphics on it. So I look at it so. Great editing. It'll be on car. I can't wait to see done. How do I thank you enough for coming out with us, man? Well, I'm, I'm glad that you call them. Good talked to you guys. It's like I think a lot of people don't really quite like I said, I don't I, I don't know if people know they probably think I'm younger guy than I am you know, it's like, because of the cars that I get to work on like, I'm not one of those on, unfortunately, I'm not one of those, those young guys building really cool stop. It's just I'm just an old guy. That's kind of been tinkering around this stuff my whole life. And, and I like to think that I've learned a few things, and, and I'm glad people liked it. And I just happened to be in the right place at the right time for a lot of it, you know, like with, with Choi, and Scott Sullivan and Joe Nichols. And all the guys ring rollers all guys that I got to work with and, and just all the guys that I used to work worth at Troyes. You know so that's why I look at it. It's like you can't go to college for that, you know, and it's like you just have to be in the right place at the right time. And. And you gotta have a passion for it. And, and you gotta starve, sometimes in you gotta work for so pretty pretty lucky and so, well, put thank you hang see sage words listener. That. That's what a lot of it. So it's out there. It is literally, the school of hard knocks. Yeah, yeah. And you find really quick. If you're gonna make it or not yellow when you think when you're at the lowest point think you're not gonna make it. It's what everything seems to come together. I think a lot of is just have been. He said in my case, I just always had faith in what I was doing. So he said, even at my lowest, which been there everybody's kind of in there, you still have faith in your. You're doing it for the right reason. And because because you did it's it's going to turn around. You know, it's not everything's not everything's temporary. Nothing's permanent whether it's success or failure, whatever. So he would even when the times were bad, I knew I'm doing good enough, stop that somebody's going to appreciate it. What was always appreciated move at least at least over here. I I actually. actually health. Whatever that's worth. I mean it's c-. My, my, my whole philosophy is always been, I doubt myself entire way. Well, yeah. Well, you know, that's I think that's the hardest thing is like, no matter what just being an artist. It's like you always question. It's like man that's part of it. It's like God. I do. I you know what the home doing? It's like then. But then when you actually get to see something done on such a high level of the kind of stuff that I got to work on. It's like holy crap. I can't believe I did that. I can't believe that, that they gave me the opportunity to do this. And that's how it turned out and, and other so much more to it like, like 'cause I'm not a body guy. I'm not really that much of a guy. I don't think complete cars and stuff. It's all the guys that do their job before I do mine. And then the guys come in after like the guards that, that, that, that clear in, in what saying in buffet buffet and spend one hundred hours, wet sandy Buchan something, you know. And, and then you even after that you gotta go back and mask it off to spray sat and clear over an area, you know, after it's what any buffed it's like there's so many. Hours and so, so many people that are experts at what they do that make your work. Look better, even better. You know that think it's almost like I get all the credit because I didn't hard work, but it's like leaving. I didn't do all this. It's like I did. I did this part of it. But these other guys did this other part you know, so you've been involved in so many. Yeah, I never actually added him up. It's like I mean between ring between like Troy's and the ring brothers. And like I just want thing we never talked about was Posey's. I did a lot of stuff proposing back in the day, and I would just fly out there on the weekends and do stuff. And it's like you talk about a character can federal Posey's this. Yeah. Just a just a great guy deputy has his opinion about what he wants but me and him always got along, really. Well, so one of the, you know, he's definitely got his his cars, whether you like them or not are very, it's very much his ideas. Exactly to t-, you know, so it was always fun. You know, awesome man will. Thank you. And I let you go heaven evening to yourself. So you can get up in the morning and look at some cool car. Yeah. Talked me. His pleasure to Bob say cancer. We'll talk to you later. Thanks. Great night. Yep. Man. What when you talk about having a guy who's done everything. And like I said at the beginning of the episode a renaissance man. Yeah. Right. There almost the Forrest Gump of hot Roddy? It's we've had last force. We've had met what is he? I guess the plural would be Gump's. We've had many Gump's becomes. Yeah. Those guys definitely multi multifaceted multi. He covers a lot of area. Man, and dude, if, if you listen to their please, send your get well cards to Brad at the round six pod, knockout. Dude, you muscled through man. I'm dying as testimony to how much Brad loves his fans. He's here. What do you have you have one hundred thirty six degree fever? Your win torch to berkey. Lows is my left foot fell off. Hey, I'm here. It's all good. Typhus typhus. I got that too elephant Titus. Orval hurts sin at the good kind. Elephant Titus of the lower intestine. The beans. Hell that means, but no, man. It was is really cool to have Bob on. And there's a dude. If you're not familiar with Bob's work, the moment you start to look up any cars men, especially to come rod rides and the rings of like the rue the really heavy hitting stuff to put everybody on the map chances are Bob's name, or hand are somehow attached to it, and maybe Brad's foot that fell. Find that may be somebody bids on one of those cars at an auction to get Brad's foot. Hang that from me, rear view mirror. That'd be great. But big thanks him for taking some time out talking to us like that. And shirt shared quite a bit of insight. I mean once again, one of the things we're really fortunate to bring you guys are guests who can share their path through the industry, and there's a lot to learn their many just even from, you know, obviously being in the right place at the right time. Big deal for that guy. But it's kinda funny to trace how a certain look for hot rods over the years can all be traced back like one or two people. It's really funny man. Right. And while man, I this is going to be one of the episodes where hey Scott, if you're listening to this one, that's a good thing. You don't have a cage near characters man, you would never fit that head in here. All to respect man. It's funny it's funny to look back and see how you can trace certain things in this industry back to one dude. That, that's, that's a really cool ill, man. Pay its course about what that assured on there. You go that guy. Right. Well, you know, I wonder if he's still picking some, you know, some of that being out of his back here. I never knew John Oates was a painter. That I ever knew. John was singing. John was painting. Does he play the Tamarine while he's painting or is it just a snags things? The gun puts a with a ball bearing in the Cup. Just it's good. Okay. I think you're confusing. John Oates with Garfunkel. For sees snapping his finger. He's doing the these fingers. Song. So singing man eater. Yeah. There you go. That's one for you. Scott. Well, thanks. Brad, go to bed. And I hope that you try to fall asleep, and all you can think of as the song man eater. That's fantastic. I will watch out here. She comes. Watch out boy, she'll show up. Who the hell writes that you'll find my left foot? I don't I don't. Key dow. Well big..

"Of a, a muscle car tight graphic, you know, or like a factory must car tight graphic. I mean, I think cars s to have like a forward motion look to, you know, but that's one of the things like when you're laying out of like a car like the, the graphics on the forty or like the rambler or something, you know, you gotta keep that in mind is that it's like a car should always look like it's got motion to it. So I always have that in the back of my mind, you know as far as as that. Part of it. You know. And people don't I think one of the hardest things is like people always wanna throw colors on it, that are so contrast thing, and it's hard to visualize. What others actually look. Good together. You know, and that's just personal in my pants just personal preference. You know, and there's when you try to tell somebody, you put Brown pinstripes on their you know around you something, they're like Brown. What would you put Brown on on, on a red card, you know? And it's like, well it's hard to explain. But when you see it, you'll like it, you know, so it's kind of just one of them things that it, most of, it's purely subjective that yet a lot of it's you're making it up as you go. And to me, I've just just when I see it. I know it, you know, and it's you may not know how to explain it to people. But like on that fully I had this, this really bold lime green pinstripe around the bottom edge of it. That was like electric, you know, and it's like I just started doing that might I knew I wanted like a green thing there. But it's like. It's, it's really bold. You don't. It's like you know what I really liked that most people probably wouldn't do that. Like, like this, you know, and it worked it in trying to bring a color from like the interior to the outside. Every people don't get that part. Yeah. And I always wonder too, if you could look back, how many miles of fine line tape do you figure out a car? That's another thing I try to tell people that have not like a light. They've, they're not they're not used to the expense of, of masking tape in fine line tape. I told him I'm gonna need about five hundred dollars just for fine line tape 'cause if I line. I mean when I started using fine line, it was like five bucks role. Now. It's like fourteen bucks role, you know. So. The material cost is gone way up. You know, but I go through I mean you could tell because I, I don't I am not a free hand pin striper by any means. It's like I didn't get into doing graphics until I was like in my thirties. So I didn't I didn't start out trying to do freehand stuff at all. It's like everything I was, I was always influenced by Scott solve and stuff that everything is so perfect and street that you can do that by mask and it off. And I'm like, well that's the answer there. I am not enough to do for him. So if you really wanna mess up your customers heads, I when I work at Billy B's, he would start keeping track of the tape. Buy just throwing the the extra role in the boat. He was working on every tape, it would just, you know, so I get in work in, like nine hundred rolls on masking tape, someone is like what is all that? That's just from this boat here. You need to do that when you're doing Greg. Just keep the rules in the cars when it come in, and it's like there's what I used on your car. For the amount you put on the car. However, I thought back like how much I pulled off of a car back in the ground to redo it. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Equal. The core of the paint booth. Yeah. Yeah. There's definitely you definitely gotta have like I've always had to have a like a fifty five gallon drum inside the paint. Boot that I can throw you know, even just even just paper you know, it's because a lot of time, it's just mask on a small area and spraying it and but you still have paper around it. And then you that's one thing that, that people ask me all the time is, like, well, can't you just mask at once and sprit and accounts for every single thing. And it's like I got unmask it. And look at it, you know, it's got to be able to see what I'm doing as I'm going. I can't I can't do like like a screen printing. Where do I can do? Exactly one color at a time mass. You know, your, like mass, the whole car, and then you just unmask these small areas to paint little things, I'm like, Nope, I unmask the whole car to stand back and look at it, so, lawyer, you should masking with, like silk shirts. This would be great. I was I was thought that was funny to try to explain to someone to where if you're building up a lot of colors and different areas as paint builds up on that paper eventually some that over spray dust settle into the paper. It's just running off of it. Yeah. It just I just want to thank you learn over time, what works, and what doesn't, or even what tapes, like, you know, just might make a same what we battle like, I'm sure you're used to it like any Inari spraying stuff is he's in, you know, there's nothing worse than spending a bunch of hours on airbrush work, and then the last time you mask back on top of it, it peels everything. All it's Fortius owning pretty disappointing. But I mean it's so it's heaving and I in there is no explaining why some jobs anymore. I try to sand every like you San the clear with six hundred like in the beginning I used to do because when I didn't know any better, I used to artwork, right? On top of base coat. And then I learned it's like, no, we need to we need to base the whole thing. Seal it with clear, Santa clear, will, then I, I would use like fifteen hundred or thousand while now I six hundred it's like, I know it's like you gotta give it some tooth to grab into, you know, and I, I just have way more luck with that. But then you always battle silver's for some reason silvers do not like to stick. There's just some brands of silver's that will not stick to anything that you do. It's like what the hell is it? What's overs? And I don't care if you use it. He's promoter. I don't care if you saying it with four hundred and Tyke their sewers or some silvers at just will not stick, and it's like God, demon put we always a grind it down to bare metal of air, you go just leave it bare metal right there. Know just over the years, you learn you learn steps at work better. It's like EPA have to reduce stuff one hundred times, and you finally learns a little bit, I guess, but anyway, I'm really into because I grew up in the sixties and seventies I'm really into medal lakes. And, and that type of you know, I still try to do at tasteful, but I try to incorporate at least like many flake in everything. And I like candies. I don't like how temperamental candies are for or how much build up, you gotta have to use them. You know. So it's like, Well, I, I can I like I like I really like fades, I really like you know, transitions try to make stuff look three dimensional. I think I'm more impressed by by the, the, the technical aspect of trying to make something look three dimensional and paint than in like having fancy paints like candy. Or or. One of my favorite things ever that I've never you know, that, like any time I go to CMO. You got all the low rider guys. The paint work on low rider cars or absolutely. The finest art work I've ever seen in my life. And I'm like these guys are absolutely his crazy. The amount of attention. They, they can do and, and just the murals in the stuff on like whole. So, always amazed by that one of my favorite buildings at Grand National. And I would never even build one of those cars, but I go through freesheet what we got. I gotta look at the, the quality of the work is unbelievable. Yeah. I don't even know one else K ask him I had a few things. Overwhelming do what you can do. So. Yeah. Well, it said the main thing is, like, you know, when I started out, I was I always drew cars, and then I got into doing airbrush stuff on cars, and then I got to do airbrush workout, some really nice cars, then I got metalwork on some nice cars. And so now I just that's what I like being able to, you know, I think when you're a kid, your idea is that you always want to be able to, to build a car, you know, so you try to figure out the best way to get into that part of it. And it's like I started out how I did. And now now that I'm at the age that I am. I've kinda gotten to the point where I can do. I certainly don't call myself an expert on everything. I can do a little bit of everything to a level that I'm, I'm happy with I would like to be faster at some of the stuff or I would like to be better at at more. I think you could never learn too much medal finishing or like Metalforming. I really appreciate guys like that. That can you know shrinking. Trek metal to create. A complete Fender for. Just about anything or an entire roofs skin. That just is, is all form. You know, like that amazes me to death. You know, it's like, I don't think I'll ever get to that in my lifetime. But I think the kind of cars that I that I wanna build at the point now or the exactly the cars that I'm working on. You know, it's like can I do good enough metal work to to get by with that, that most body guys, appreciate what you're doing that? They're not creating everything out of Bondo. So that's a step in the right direction anyway. So, but they're still like I said, the, the graphic part of it. I'm still interested in that part of it on the right cars. You know, I I wanna be able to do that on the cars that I'm involved with. I really don't wanna do that much on cars that are just that just come in just to do a graphic job. You know, but yet I say that and then but Toby works is bringing me, his, his Mustang to do the graphics arm. Nice. Oh, and he showed me that early. Drawing. I don't know if you saw that SIV Stamford did a rendering where the stripes, I it's basically the cars Magana, I never use the word pink, always say, magenta basically, the cars pink, and it's in. I think the stripes were like white or silver, but the stripes, I don't I don't know what you call that. It's not exactly a barcode. It's like what do you call that pattern? That's like the squares on the back of products anymore. You are code insulated thing. So the types are done with the correct. Pixellated barcode things for all the manufacturers that are involved in that car. So no, how cool that is. I mean, that is a typical Steve Stanford idea there. It's like to the average person walking up to it, it, it'll probably end up looking like digital camouflage, but it's actually that pixellated barcode thing that's going to be the idea for the stripes. And I think the pictures I've seen of it. Fellini didn't you do a drawing that car don't want early on to..

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.

How much worse powers your neighbor have because you need to have more than him. He'll never live down here, right there. 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.

I've got I've got plans for one of those. I mean back in the day, think nobody ever thought that the the you know, Monte Carlos or the grand prix anything like that was going to be a hit. 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. It's like, oh, I've got a, you know, eighty six Monte LS with a four point three what do you want for thirty eight. So then you have the third Kamera that went across Barry Jackson, those a million dollars. So Jack, Jack jackdaw then breast buckets, that are in some ways, backyard. Mullets everywhere getting tucked side attracted hats on it, though. Because that's what I'm like, I got a I've been looking at a lot here lately. But I kinda grew up with that, but I have my Ford five oh, but is that are cracking? All men. You know, trying to send me mullets and stuff like that. But. Yeah. Till you work on them. They. Well, there's that I we owned one wife and I have one and you better have a metric Anna standard sockets that Mark on. Yeah. In a bunch of foam to stuff under the dashboard, in underneath all the trim. So it doesn't squeak. But yeah, I mean, I don't think I can't imagine one of those coming out of Jonathan shop or he's going to be like, all right. We gave you a little piece of retro that you always wanted to this rattling, right? Where it's coming from now, now we're not gonna stick the Salk behind the on the tag because bike battle. How great would that be though? What? Right. There's a, that's a start of a whole YouTube channel for you. Like you go around in your sourcing like vintage, like, but don't even go for brand name stuff like pile drivers. You know, anything you can to make this thing, though, pyramid. Steph or. Yes. Mmmm get California style. Wasn't it? That's funny. The awesome. It's got a legacy chassis with pyramid guts, keep your will as your Tassell from hostile hanging from the mirror to.

Oh oh, yeah. And I mean if I could find that car again now. Well, it would be the ultimate. I God that thing it'd be great time capsule. I would love to see a whole series of cars that are built just like the stuff you had in highschool. Exactly. Yeah. -til some tweed some no, not some lots of tweet tweet either -til.

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.

This is their sixtieth episode. And by golly were sharing it with you. Oh, I feel hundred definitely. Well, we're honored man case. Yeah. Your name your name kept coming up. And then heck, what was it? Almost a year ago. A good guys. I talked to you. Yeah. It was I'd say was Scottsdale. Good guys right after same. Oh, we've got together and just kind of one of them deals where, like, hey, I wonder if I'll ever be on that because I like how how you guys actually put everybody together. You know, we get the listen to people and actually hear their stories and Tennessee, where they came from and all that. Well, thanks, man. And I, I just felt bad because I, I kinda like drop the ball. I was just. Well, yeah, I talked to Jonathan I got his hopes up time to get somebody else on. Yeah. I forgot he was the Jonathan. When you're aging calls, and said, do you know exactly? Hey, you got to get off the pot and do this. Do you know how I am? I am the agent for the John in China. How busy it gets? You know, in a year flies by, like nothing now. And that's the thing man. And I'm a I'm looking in shorter now, so lane gravity blame bed who knows bad diet, whatever. But it's good to finally. Have you on man? And I gotta tell you after Sima last year after walking around casper like that. The these guys will tell you one did I finally shut up about the car. It was late. Yeah. Late. Well, we, we were we kinda cheated we had we had twenty four hour access to that place. So I don't see how because we were pretty lake probably going in there were were in and out of there are a lot. Well, we seem to always kind of over in that area and every time, we'd go by there, Brian would point some say, well, hey, what about this doesn't really look stock? This party is no, they did this, so he knew all about the car because, you know, we're, we're Alexandra Chevy gays and he's the dodge guy so he'd pointed. All the little details stuff out that I wasn't sure about, like, that's up pretty crazy car. Leave me. I've learned a lot on mo- part since. We started off with an Abbadi man. I mean. It's the only way to go. Yeah, I got a good history behind it towards the, you know, bath this, she's a the regional owner of that car, and, you know, just the just the history towards her drag racing it back in the day, going through a couple of hands and misfortune on a few things Katrina flooded. Everything when her late husband were trying to rebuild it back to stock, and it's just one them deals. Like, finally, she got her car back and you know, it was some other shop at hit it, and she finally found it a couple of years later in a storage unit and had to pay the storage to get it out of them. This just if he gets stories at day amazing. At least it didn't end up on like, you know, one of those storage wars things. Very waste bought the car for news, baggers metals going for a pound now. But that's her baby though. It turned out phenomenal. Wow. What a great looking car, and I would like to say if that card didn't have a big hand in making those things like the hottest thing since lice bread. Yeah. There's definitely help that there was. No. Yeah. Was there any other dusters at the show? I don't remember one other duster, and I apologize anybody. That built one for Seema last year. I remember your car, it might might've been like in the interior that called Julian. I want it on. There's that and yet that was another friend of ours. So we've been ritual friend in that it yet. What Wayne and Pam McGriff did that right? Oh, yeah. Definitely. They pretty much done. Everyone car we've ever done in that was one of them that we always throw wildcards at them in there like one of them will be like onboard. Another is like. Okay. But we with that corps best never seen, like a paint sample, sample or anything. She seen renderings here and there and the last she had seen it was embarrassed metal, and we had a four or five rendering zone of the interior, and they were all pretty much pro touring ish looking and it never hit tour. They looked like a vintage pro street card. You know, take it back to what she used to have, but kinda modernized and last minute, they have the golden duster had that strapping material. And I said, let's, let's draw this up with a strap in material. We found a company that actually had had their original material in a role in we drew it up. I sent it to her the rendering, and it was one of them that was kind of, like I don't know about that. And this will probably I'd say close to write at a month before same a-. And I'll sign. Yeah. I mean it was literally. Eleven hours before hitting her with the, the yeah, the vintage drapes are hanging in the in the kitchen count. You. I was like, just trust me. Let's do it is going to slap people in the face. Some we're gonna love it. Some we're gonna hit it. But I think it's gonna fit and still it was one of them. I don't know. I was like, let's just do it was like, if you don't like it after the first year we show it. I'll change it all back out to why litter. And she's like my all right? That's fine. Do what you want to do so. That was the first time you see actually seen it was debuted at CENA. We pulled the cover off of it, and she saying the color, she's seeing the car, and she walked up to the inside and looked at it. And she looked back at me. She goes, they don't look that bad. By your big relief. Could've gone into submitted to renderings for that gun. You know, the one you did, and just to make sure you get that one, you submit one with, like a mod top. It was one of them, we can look really bad there. And she cussed south for what we done for car or we were going to be making home Rome at home run out of it. Right right here. This is the cool part of of, of this hobby of hot. Rotting is every lead people to play safe. They don't I don't want to. I don't want to step out of that comfort zone and do something that everybody's gonna freak out by. Well, that's how you that's how you do it. I mean, you got to be willing to you got to be willing to take that dive. Yeah. Let's do it like yeah. What people don't like it. It doesn't matter. I think it's bad ass. Well, there you go. So and it was a hit. Yeah, I think I think I hear more positive than negative about it. So I think it's a good throwback. That's not the normal pro-tory car, you know, so, I think it was a hit so indeed, man. And again, had the hallmark of everything you build, you know, super well detailed, great fit and finish. And again, not quite the expected car, I love your stuff. They're not gonna I'm not gonna fan boy, you here, but dammit, okay, maybe a little, but it's just one of the things that always been a fancier style and y-. You really you don't fit the typical mould which is what I think about your stuff. And it's something I wanna talk to you about is the development of your style over the years. I you granted hell you're good guys trendsetter, and for good reason. Because again, you don't follow the same footsteps, you know, for you. It's not the. Okay. It's these forge lines on column A the this suspension kit on be this color office, e year, he got your your stuff has you can pick. One of your cars out of a lineup easy. Now, allocate I don't wanna be the yeah the one that's our shop for all. We do is just pro towing cars weighed like are hot rods? We like our Venice all that stuff. So we kinda like, and it gives a good change of pace in the shop two and a good variety. So I don't I don't wanna get too wild and crazy. Definitely change a few things. But, you know, back in the day, they these cars are, are nice now and I think we just need to kind of fine. Tune them. And, you know, definitely modernize some of the drive train on to some degree because everybody's wanting to drop them now but it's enhanced what's kind of already. They're right on it. This brings up an interesting point to like right now. We're in kind of a weird part, just a weird. Part of history with this whole thing where there's not really an emerging trend at the moment. It's kind of all over the place. There's a lot of outgrowths from existing trends, things like that. I mean, he got like the c ten guys are all doing their seat, ten thing whatever that is over there. And, you know, you've got the pro turing guys are pretty set in what they wanna do where where do you see it going right now? Man. I figured I'd load one up frame. Yeah. That's straight up. Yeah. Here's slapped a full in your face. Not like about it. It's, it's kind of like this, this whole show is free style. And you just go with it, and it's hard to say because like you said every angle has their own idea and train on, you know, with CTN stuff, the patina cars, that's huge. Now, you know is, is really hard to say, I think everything's kind of maybe taking a step back a little bit and not being too crazy. I think a lot of stuff is going, more rigid. But they're modernizing everybody drive train, and the feel to pretty much few took your daily driver everyday thousand eighteen truck or whatever, and put oh, sheet metal on it, and drove it like a daily driver. I think that's a big thing right now is Dr ability, you know, people are wanting to get out and actually enjoy. Enjoy these cars, you know, right on. Yeah. We, we had a talk with Ilana sure about a yeah a couple of weeks ago. And one of the things she had mentioned to she said, it's a lot of viewing nostalgia through the eyes of modernity. It's a hard thing to say modernity, and that, that makes a lot of sense of. So you've got you want that driveability, but you still want that, that vintage feel exactly. But I mean it's really easy to triple that line two in wind up with like that. You know, that Led Zeppelin tour t shirt that you just brought a target man..

"Words, it just like all preposition. That'd be cool. Burt Quimby presents the word to. Yeah. I can draw up pretty good to, to, to, to all and the number two. So four times all variations. It'd be great prep. Oh, this big preposition. Variations all do. This is gonna be the greatest show ever. Let's get skill working on this. Of course you're gonna have a bunch of lettering, guys. It'll never show because they didn't do well in English they're not going to know what you're talking about. Yeah. Spell your your. You're invited us. But hey, I know it's late by I don't want to take too much your time. I, I, I don't know about you guys, but the stay basically in shape by hit the gym six days a week. I basically try and take care of myself a little bit. I don't know about you guys, but. Get in a bid six out of the seven days a week. Yeah. No, I do spin class. I don't know if you know what that is. I do that. I do that two times a week and good at five o'clock in the morning before I go to work some, some loud, rock and roll, and just crank it on the bike and put in like about fifteen miles, and a physical therapist, the cut me sooner riding the bike and ended up buying my own for home. So yeah, yeah, that's, that's like the greatest stress reliever ever. Is it a peleton? Did you get peleton? I did not. I am. I'm broke this shit. So I like doing it with it with people. That's why I go to the gym. So it motivates me. I gotta get up and go, you know, we're I probably wouldn't hire hop on the bike.

You know, for what we do you know, just like Brad cities, you know, get a sore back all the time. You know, I just try try and like, you know, do some exercises strengthen the core and still a little weight lifting and stuff like that. So keeps you in shape a little bit keeps you oil than lubricated and all that. Yeah. Digging now. I feel bad about myself. Thanks a lot.

Bert very much. Thanks, man. That was fun that he taught the all these is really good to talk to you. Finally have great evening. You too. Are I guess? Well man that was. Awesome to finally have Burdon hurt on bird on the podcast. That's kind of weird lost may have Burdon Burdon, once like bird-flu. Yeah. T-that Ernie couldn't have been on. But, you know, getting Burt by himself was was good. Nobody was great. I followed his work for a number of years, and it was great to finally get a chance to talk to him. Definitely. He, he was one of the guys that as a teenager meant I mimicked an emulated his stuff. But at least I tried to let's be, let's be honest her, you know, there's, there's only one Burt and ice to give it such a shot minute. I would look forward like I said, flip it through signed craft was like the bible is to love on that magazine come out. And it was tough to tough to wait for that sometimes, you know. What's, what's cool is there's two guys, well, even even Glenn and I've texted, Glenn a bunch of times over the years. And but, like Burr, you know, we've talked we've talked before and and, and Todd Hanson lasagna there and, and all his different guys that, you know, watching that magazine Bank when it first started getting it made eighty six there's just friends of mine. It's kind of it's kind of weird. It's a little the little mind boggling. And it's, it's messed up to think that like so many of these guys are just people. We know now. Yeah, I was thinking about physical, just our whole industry. You think about people that you read about. And, and now there's this people you talk to. It's crazy. And even here we are. You know, I mean growing up it was like circus paint. Aw, man. That that's the gods of funny car paint. And I would've never thought, as, as a young kid, I was like, man. This, this do this bird Quimby guys. He's just so. Awesome. And one night while. Yeah, we'll sit down and have a talk with them coal as well as you talked to a man. It's so weird. And it was really cool to talk to him, too, about the evolution of stuff. I mean, going from, you know, the heyday of the craziest paintshop in the universe to doing color changes on BMW's and to see a guy who's not only can gone through that, but excel that at every step of the way and. I think that there's a lesson in talent there, you know, I think I think it goes way beyond perseverance. That's that's talent love for what you do. Those really cool to have mine to hear him talk about that. Yeah. That was like that was kind of a kick in the essay needed this week. I'm sorry to cut you off man. No, no. I was just comment. And basically saying the same thing, it's, it's cool. How you could do something for that many years and still enjoy it. That's, that's, that's great. I was I was laughing Brian listened to the thing going as far as editing going to feed just talking man. This is easy. There's not a lot of Hammond in haunt. He's just telling the story you go. Yep. This is the shit disease because he just tell them the story you go. Okay. Run go. Yeah. And here's a note for future guests. I mean, hope you guys know by now the, the podcast is never been. We don't like the whole QNA stuff that was never purpose with this. And I think we kind of a good deal where we've had really great guests. And when guests come on, we want, we want to religion feel really comfortable and Bert had never done this before. And I know Brad, you're talking earlier said, always. You know, we're, we're talking about it and getting close to it. And when everybody gets on I don't think we've had a nervous guest yet. Did you just I just sent you gays? Yeah. I got it. I'll shoot him a text tomorrow morning. Yeah. It's a little late together. I refuse to read it. Okay. How am I wanna make sure that this is a five o'clock at five zero five? When he gets warmed up. He's on his bike. I'm gonna it's going to get pounded him tax. We have to stop pedaling to go who is this? I know what you're doing it. We'll tag team. I'll do it. I'll do the citizen get up. How's the ride going? Here's what we need to do. Let's put him on a group text and all this to start conversing with each other. Okay. Right in the bike right now. I'll bet you'll Birt's reading the bike well, did he say, you got all you got one of those I was pretty bad as check this out, and it was sharing where we find a Benetton or a peleton. What kind of time was it? Pelican. I wasn't sure what they can have. What is that? Carries fish. You should he should be pretty swamped asked about now. No Grenadian Brian does do that. Let's make it a group. Just keep fucking with. Like those are Instagram posts for the next week, nothing, but screen grabs of. Yeah. So did any such a cool dude? Just just the man that guy is a he's a time capsule into himself. That's amazing. Got it. And again that, that weird interconnection between things you know, he's author doing funny cars. He's talking about young blood and they go back and Carson's can actually young blood your connections in here with Dennis and dude, it's so weird. Well, thanks again for for tuning in here to the around six podcast episode fifty nine Yep. Thanks again, to our guest up or Quimby of Burt graphics.

"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..

"It, man. He welcome, sir. We'll come to episode three on fifty-six. Good to have you, sir. Thanks for having me, enjoy the invite who can afford your conversation as are we, we, we already laid the ground rule. We know to listen for the dial tone yet. At dial tones that means Jimmy has left the building. It's the indicator. Well awesome. How's things going at the shop freezer. I was going real good. We're real busy lot of projects on the table, which is fraud. It's we have a lot of diversity is we're not just pigeonholed into, you know, just one type of vehicle right now. I think we've got fourteen different vehicles on the flavor. All in different stages. I mean, some are what we call a shave and a haircut quick, turn and burn, get our friends and our, you know, our, our fellow hot-rodders down the road safely. Not everything is a complete full build and that's kind of not many shots. But that's that's a service. We like to provide as well. So not just full builds, you know, somebody needs some help with something where our more than wounded jump in. And again give him down on the road safely out screaming so anything in the shop, you can talk about. You have like top secret projects going on. I don't know. We can talk about every single vehicle and nothing's really a secret right now. I don't think so. I could be wrong. I might just say the wrong thing getting trouble. You'll know in a week. We got one, one of which there are some top secret aspects to it. But Billy Gibbons his whiskey runner CU. It's, it's here on the shop right now. And we've been going back and forth or different concepts. And some pretty off the wall stuff that only Mr. Billy Gibbons can do as a project. We had started. I want to say eight years ago maybe back, it's so cow. So pizza pours, of course, Billy myself and this idea for yet another very iconic and individual creation in the mind of Mr. Billy Gibbons and Pete myself right now. It's in our hands and Jeff Allison's been on board last six months, nine months, working together there with conceptual stuff, but together different renderings ideas. So it's, it's really growing. Sometimes you get to like a stumbling point when you're building these vehicles, and he's like. Ads not talking to me right now. I don't know what to do. I'm just gonna set it aside until she starts to speak, again within the last couple of months, speaking, perhaps yelling is what the cars, so the studying man, what, what were you what was your expiration the life who were your heroes? Oh, gosh. I mean we're taking are taken a trip in the way back machine right now, grow up as a kid. My nickname is shine. Of course, as one thing is supposedly after as many years as I've been in this industry and television magazines. And all the wonderful things I've been able and, and honored to be able to do so many people think eight my real surname is shine. I mean let me tell you, if you don't know this already. You can you'll be able to see why so many different nicknames because it's twelve letters long Austrian and it's false Lehner. So everything from flashlight to flesh Amer. Do you name it? I got I got some mega dumb nicknames. For whatever reason the shines dock and well, it's not my least favorite one, but I don't know h is kinda megrim part of a staple as to how everybody knows me, which I think is funny. I mean I mean obviously, you never get to an enemy a good nickname. You never get to choose. You know, you don't get to go out there and just say this is my nickname, but at least you'll end up a shine. I mean hell my last name is stop sqi. So try to measure the crap I put up with, you know. Well, sure. You got some good ones too. I've got some winners man. I've I've chosen to stick with you know, Bryant, I guess I caught her off on a tangent. Real vs. ESPN one question, I'll talk about something else, how my early days, I did grow up in a very old automotive or perhaps more or less mechanical because it kind of. It combined everything from boats to Motors cycles to off road cars, drag racing too many different elements all mixed together. My family was very eclectic that way. And. Popular all kinds of weird crazy staffs. I always grew up with it is always seemed to have been just swimming. Do I don't know? I wish I had a really good reason some divine moment as to why I do what I do. I just got here the cat's out the bag. I'm just simple. And that's what they liked it. But that's that's the good thing. I mean, and you couldn't be in a better a better industry for that. I mean, I think simplicity is so overlooked in what we do. Oh, yeah. I tend to agree with you. I like things understated. We can we can give very carried away. This automotive world is hot rod world, where in very artistic Centric it cetera. However, I what we the term, we call or we use. You know, we try to exercise restraint maintain the purity of the bills that were doing very traditional traditional minded, that we are an pull from our heritage. Yeah. It's just because you can't do something doesn't mean you sure. So we try really, you know, every vehicle we build. We, we tailored for the owner the individual and his purpose built we try to deviate from for original ideas, deviation is only to simply embellish, and make them better. But then that becomes a collective decision between all of us. And for myself to the owner to designers, builders, everybody's got voice, what, what has been I, I know one when I say it doesn't stuff is so Cal back has been a few years ago, and you're working on your we're gonna Billy's, car the keep you have in the shop right now with that helicopter headline. Is that is that like the craziest one of the craziest weird things you've ever been involved in? I'm gonna have to say this pretty up there. I'm involved some crazy weird stuff. I don't think Neil right now as a platform to discuss sir activities. But okay, I'm just kidding. I'm just kidding. I'm having fun. The more wild ones. Billy's Cussing crazy weird ideas. And now when just worked out it actually came to him in a dream, he was driving out in the desert. And he had this light coming out of his car, and he was chasing some girl. You know what he says, it, it's a dream. But for own purposes, I wouldn't be surprised if it was real refound that it's actually at twenty four what landing white, and at one point I did research the serial number on it, and I knew what kind of plane and were planes. It was used in. But since then I've forgotten that whole linkage thing. Did you have to come up with the I thought it was all part of the whole deal? You have to kind of figure, you know, it was unit. It was like this was a hand light in this gear driven combination, electrical engine driven motor unit that had about twenty seven wires coming out of it, and they were all white. The list, they weren't labeled. So it was just a process of deduction. I just heard going through to see cooking lights to power wires to power to see what they did, then I'd Markham. And after a couple of hours, I figured out, what each one did from moving up down left right on off all these different configurations. See, I worked in the aerospace business, and we don't have colored wires, everything is labeled with a number. So whoever cut that harness off, obviously cut it pass, where the number was at, but the number witness served any purpose of unless you had a schematic actually, I think there were numbers on, but that's still doing means. Yeah, yeah, it's not gonna help. The ones that can happen. I'll be fifty bucks if this thing you know, explodes by the strip mall. Well, what if we're vote like things probably gotta work pretty well. I hadn't hooked up to twelve volt and it worked and then one side, put some batteries in series involve. Ask it matters neck like too good. Say coming in the other lane. You know, it's like, you know, somebody's flashing her high beams to kick it down. It's like dude, you have no idea what you're about ready to get where I go to funny stories about that light. The first one goes back to Sima about two thousand twelve I think we had it there on the main lobby. I remember when it sat in the lobby I do. So we took a car afterwards. You know Friday for move out and go onto the ignited party, the Sima ignited, so everybody rain unloads out of the buildings drives down in front of the grand stands and gives on the main drag their sits and fasting for three hours to make it a Sidney walk which is a lot of fun. But it was hot that afternoon. So Billy and I jumped in the coup, and I was driving in, then Billy's white Gilly was sitting between us. And so we did that whole parade thing and drove out, and that was a lot of fun. And then by the time we got out on them. Main drag their traffic was so bad that we were just idling for a good hour hour, half Gilly was over. She's like I'm gonna walk there. Let me out of the car, it's off, so she gets out and walks away and billionaires just sitting there and the sun was going now, keep in mind that light is twenty four volt. So I had a special unit mounted in the car because I had two batteries hooked in parallel. However, with a series of diodes, it was charging from the alternator so at twelve alternator charged each batter independently Mr. Gibbons is having a really good time playing with his light is going down the road. Most feed. What happens alternator doesn't charge? This thing was lighting up the side of these buildings in us, having a grand time. Well, we had made it, though, just short of our final destination. And with this light on all the sudden that the car kind of stumbled, and then sputtered and went out, and we were I forget what the name of the street was. We're on the main street there and the cart dead. And I've got a rockstar stuck in traffic in this chop coop. And I went to panic like, oh dang, but I didn't say Nang. My actually said some the now. So he's doing this. Just off to the side of the road. He's like, no way man. This is too much fun. Billy jumps out at car. I got a car, and we're pushing, you know, this chop thirty four Ford. Down the street. And so sure enough, always we had always, volunteers and people pusher helped us. Get over a side of the road. We got jumper cables. We fired this thing back up, and it'd be really went to put his hand back on that control the start that light again. I smacked him. Good and hard. Camping. Those funny, so we did make it battery was dead. Billy had a good time. That's just crazy stuff that happens. And then the other story was Tony O'Brien thicker, talk show. Right. Okay. Okay. I think that's his name. Big talking funny. Bob's people here. Says he was invited to do Ecksteen tons song sixteen tons on the Conan, O'Brien show..
