Almost a fun time. I believe this Event was previously called the "Primer nationals". Highlight of the event was the King Gene Winfield. Never knew this guy was one of the very few "Straight edge" car builders. kinda lame that I have a beer in this photo.

Without the ghia or BSA there has been a lot of time and space to fuck up some canvas. I don't do this often enough and should really get off my ass about producing more large scale paintings. Thanks to Lorah for helping me stretch some canvas!!! to get this ball rolling. Here is a little. 5.5ft X 3ft aquanaut painting,been workin on. also got another half to this peice. bringing the total size to 6ft x 5.5ft

I started this 70's Speedway project with the intention of only getting the bike painted, but after "opening the can of worms" i cant seem to stop. Added a handmade tank and custom drop outs. which will be machined aluminum plates and 3/4" clevis locks to hold em in place.

Not too far from here, there are people who have nothing but "passed down crap"; collecting dust in the far corners of their house. They see no use.. nor can they look at "IT" without squinting. I cant believe today that, while in need of a quality drill press to finalize gadgets on the ghia. I would score a 1956 Craftsman unit. 1/2 hp, 5ft tall. This middle age dude not too far from my house was setting up his driveway for the weekly BLOW out. 100$ no questions and ran.I too live and believe in the saying "yesterdays technology, today. Currently workin on the getting a matching ban saw.

Here is one. I was thinkin about doing BeRzerKer belts and call em "belt Drive Belts". This one is a 3 peice 33" died Alligator skin with cow hide backing and some brass and copper studs. Currently dwelling into screen printing onto leather. The buckle is a class N' Trash find.

Ya well i know its been a delay on getting new pics of the NEW shop up. Had to build alot to get this work'n right. Pretty happy that things are goin to plan and somewhat smooth. Ill be really diving into this head first. printing on just about anything i can get my hands on. And for just about nothin to keep alive. For anyone who thinks that i have it easy work'n for myself, think again, I constantly worry about what the future holds and can NEVER count on a steady paycheck. I go from "broke" to feelin rich and back to broke all in the amount of a few days.It is the feelin of freedom that keeps this alive.

Awsome trip. I want to thank Cole for letting such a Goon like myself tag along. Even though i had to babysit his ass! also thanks to Kelly and Jeff Decker, Lissa and "New york Bobby, for the laughs and Larry merch. Never before have i felt so welcomed by complete strangers. And not to forget my new WOP friends Alberto, who treated me drinks, espresso and a good time where ever we where. Italy was truly memorable because of you guys.
More pics to come......

so this week went smooth, Got the ghia all primed and blocked. Still got some more sanding to do till she's straight. It seems as though this project is goin alot smoother than i thought. but still kills me everyday i work on her. I believe thats the way it goes. "One day we shall ride", one day..
