    lets start off by saying one of the gambino familys own is leaving the nest to persue bigger and better things yes you heard right boston steve is going back to mass.and we are sad .he will be missed at gambino kustoms dearly,
    steve is a great friend & family member ,hes a great fabracator and builder,on top of being an all around great guy .we always have alot of fun .hes a BIG part of the gambino opperation and crew and ALWAYS will be and the door will always be open !because you cant close the door at gambinos when your a family member ,at first steve was alil nerves when i told him you dont leave the gambino family ,you come in this thing of ours alive and you go out dead ,in nicer terms or words the gambino family is forever.
    now this brings us to the 30 day wounder part.we'll steves done alot for us and we apreciate that BIG time and i love him like a brother so why not give his truck the 'treatment' i mean how could he go back to mass with out a gambino kustom , he cant , that aint gona work , hes got to represent right ,besides if we dont finish he cant leave lol ,man this is a great plan.
    now this brings us to the road zombie part,steves truck just happens to be a big part of road zombie history and a few folks will probley not like the fact that we are redoing the truck and changing the color.the truck was built by choppin joe and eric lamonas at first it was joes personal truck but then things changed and it was finished and sold to "pops" it was painted by lil freddie 'kolors by freddie' and striped by eye bone.so heres the be fore pics follow along as this project crawls along did i mention steve leaves sept 1st lol
    man this is a great plan
    oh ya the best part about steve and this truck he DRIVES it every were we go
    BEFORE

    I hope you're going to hang that tailgate on the wall and find another for the truck.

    steve-- we are definitely going to miss you. even though we're close to SF, its tough finding a 300lb fag who's gay with such enthusiasm. You'll be missed, sweet cakes.

    in all seriousness, it was great having you in california. you're a genuine good dude, with a great heart and the skills to match. you'll be a winner in whatever you put your mind into, brotha' man.

    this is too cool! The comrodry that comes from a little club and a kick-ass shop is what this stuff is all about.

    It is not all about what "I did", but what "we did". That is what is lost on a lot of people.

    The Gambino Family is what this is all about!


    Also , I had one little brush with fame, I saw senior Gambino at the Roundup in 07, but I was too star struck to approach him. Also , a little tired from the road trip to get there.

    Keep the updates coming.

    Jeff
