Default Bill Hines Shop - Custom Cars From The Planet Hines

Coming to the states in April for the Lonestar Roundup and VLV, we are going to cruise around LA visiting everything that is worth visiting. It would have been cool to stop by Bill Hines' Shop. Does anyone know where his shop is located, and has anyone stopped by there?

From looking at his website: http://www.billhinestheleadslinger.com/ it looks like "Custom Cars From The Planet Hines" has a shop on Long Beach, but it doesn't say where.... maybe that is a hint that he don't want people to come and bother him all the time... I don't know, all I know is that Bill Hines is a really cool legend when it comes to kustomizing cars, and it seems like he is still active doing what he knows best

Hey,

Ya may wanna drop Mr. Hines an e-mail and see if he would be up
to a visit. Bill isn't a "George Barris''character, he hasen't been one
to dance in the limelite!
The last time I dropped in on Bill, he was workin' on a Merc. that
had previously been worked over by Dick Dean. He was not a happy
man.

Yeah last time I was in LA I made a special trip to north hollywood to see Barris's shop, looked through the window then went in and explained we [me and the wife] were from the uk and would love to have a breif look around! We were to no as they were not allowed to let people wander around. the staff wernt busy and geeorge was just sitting there and didnt seem to care less. I was gutted as when I was a kid I looked up to him.

Hey,

I've nothing but deep respect for each of these gentelmen, as they
had done more for the" kustom car world ", before I was born, than
I ever will. Keep in mind, both of these guys are up there in years,
and have been through alot. From the mid 70s to the late 80s ( the
dark years for kustoms), not many knew these guys were still alive,
now "Hollywood Types, Viedo Jackoffs and Cable Clowns" all want
a piece of their "glow". Ya can't blame them for wantin' their "space"
at times.

I hung out with him and his 2 grandkids at the GNRS this year. He is a very humble and down to earth individual. The grand kids both work with him down at the shop. I will try and find the # that they gave me and will pm it to ya. I wonder if he sleeps with that cigar in his mouth? KNUX!

Hey Superfleye

You should give FLAT-TOP-BOB a shout and ask him if he would give you a tour around his grand salvage yard in Wellinton TX. He is a great guy and he'll be at the Round up. You could easy cruise (85 mph) up with him from Austin like we did last April!

My boys go to school with his grandkids. His son lives here in Yorba Linda and does a carshow at the Civic Center every year. He's a real nice guy. One of his grandkids drives around in a black,chopped '57 Chevy wagon,with a Buick grill,he did years ago. The plate says "Hines 57".

Mention MY name and you can have the best seat in the place at Jay Bee's BBQ on Avalon. Gooz's brother in law at the Sizzler got deported last week, that's why he don't have the juice there anymore. They got a new busboy.

I guess my skin just got thicker. I just know and bump into these kats just like the rest of us on here. You ever think that maybe I leave a lasting impression to people and they welcome me when I see them again. So, lets just drop the name drop'in. It's called being approuchable and down to earth. Try it sometimes, it works....wink! KNUX!
