This would be Barstow , California.... Damn .To early, they are still closed!! And, the one in Victorville, Damn!! I was greeted by Buster the wonder dawg. Hi Buster! Got there just before lunch. As fate would have it ,Kenny is working at a movie studio just up the street from Jimmy's, so we called him and we went to lunch... Guess where....... Now that's some trick photography! Nice Van! Went back to Jimmy's and got out the can I've been working on for the party. Had a few finishing touches to do on it. Then we got a visit from the contingent from Japan.. Nash comes over every year for this gig, and brings some of the stripers from Japan with him. I've met all but one before. From the left is Dirty K, Yours truly, Jimmy C, Mr. G, And Ghost. The American hot rod scene is big in Japan. Anything to do with it is a big deal to them.There is a Mooneyes store in Tokyo. They hold a big show there the week before the one here. These 3 stripers are but a few of the guys that come over for it. They are really great artists too. I am Lucky enough to have some of their artwork hangin in my house. Good to see you guys again!!
I have to show you this bike that Jimmy had in his shop. He had a customer bring it to him, and told him to cover it with stripes....Wow, what a beautiful job. Must have taken a week!
Jimmy and Dena put me up for the night, again.. Thank you both! It's always fun to stay with them. Next day we went back to the shop.I helped jimmy get some stuff ready for the show... Kenny called and wanted to take us to the Fatburger for lunch. Not being one to turn down a burger, especially a Fatburger, we were on our way.
