The spring brings nicer weather as well as an increase in phone calls for work. as much as I want to stripe and the like. I am still spending every extra hour in the garage.
The end of May always brings the Rat Fink Reunion. That's one thing that will get me out of the garage. This year was the 10th annual since the Big Daddy passed on. Hardly seems possible.It also marks Rat Finks 50th Birthday....That's really hard to believe. I can remember when Rat Fink was one!
I did this sign for Ilene the year she built this building... The neighbor lady complained when she hung it on the outside. so it ended up on the inside wall...,
One of theearly customs built by Ed,is the Tweetie pie. Recently restored by Dave Shutton Working for Galpin Ford,Ilene got to go for a ride..
This was Rat Finks Birthday cake.... It was good!!
|This was one of my art pieces and the girl that won it She ran in the 5k run to get it..... I didn't lol|
|I did this one as my show award. Gave it to a 1940 Plymouth. Cool rod!|
|the show was the biggest yet close to 250 cars. from as far away as Iowa.. very cool!|
That was the last of the bodywork It's going to need blocked and primed a couple times to get all the minor imperfections out but that can wait till the mechanical stuff is done. I want to test drive it on the street before labor day!! .
