I have a McPhail shift knob.....one of the 1st "hot rod" parts I ever bought years ago....
When I saw it it was one of those "gotta have it's", and it's still one of my favorites.

On the rare occasion that Dennis decides to post on the board, the thing that is most impressive, is that he doesn't TRY to impress. He is articulate, to the point, and respectfull. Lessons could be learned...

The few dealings i have had wilth him have been nothing but straight forward.

Not to mention his amazing talent, if he's not carefull he may get famous!

wow.........thanks.............i don't know what to say about the kind words........
but I can talk about the shift knobs and new sculptures......... I didn't actually carve and sculpt them myself, but I worked with a really great guy named Craig Campbell who was able to capture my sketches and drawings and bring them to life. He's currently on assignment in New Zealand working on miniatures for the new 'Hobbit" movie. He did a lot of work for Todd McFarland toys back in the day as well......I was fortunate to have been able to work with him...... The final production, molds and painting, was accomplished by the guys at Van Chase. They were very tolerant of me standing over their shoulders and giving color and style suggestions. buy some so I can pay these guys back........
Thanks so much Ryan.........D

Longtime fan as well.

Got him to ink one of his original designs (one of my favorites) on me. The winged wheels are ala McPhail and became the theme/inspiration for my whole chest piece.

McPhail has kept kustoms alive in my opinion. I still have the article he wrote about his cross country tour in his infamous Chevy for Custom Rodder. Without his art and subjective and refined views on the Kustom Kulture, I don't believe it would be what it is today. He has a great deal of respect for those that came before him, but I have a great deal of respect for him and what HE has done.

McPhail = Ruler.
