  1. Just received word that Bill Hines is not doing well and your thoughts and prayers are needed.
  2. Wow hope he pulls through. Would be tough to lose another Detroit ( Downriver ) legend. He has overcome a lot in his life and has to be one of the hardest working men ever!

    His son Mike was my friend and room mate in the early 70s' when he had his Lynwood shop. I hope Bill's OK.

    Hope that Bill bounces back. I remember meeting him at a custom show back in the 90s, and how nice and gracious he was to my 10 year old son. He's one of a kind. Get well, Bill

    Get well & btt of prayer/HAMb Chappell.
    He's one of the legends of legends. I met him in Salina KKOA last few yrs & watch in awe as he chops & sections a 3day custom outside in 105*F.
    So if I'm ever feeling a little too sore or tired, I should just imagine Bill Hines kickin' my ass & smiling with his cigar like he's a teenager.
    What a bad ass dude.
    Keep fightin BILL!

    As hot as it's supposed to be in Salina, it wouldn't be good for him there. He has been a fixture at that show; cigar and all. Get well.

    I've been fearing this sort of news for a long time. :( With as many heros of this hobby as we have lost in recent years I just hate to see another one, especially Bill, not well. He will be in my prayers tonight for sure.

    More than a talent, he seems like a hell of a nice man.

    Going to miss wild Bill , what an artist in lead . nobody better . Started very young at Chrysler , Back in the 40's . I'm 70 and remember him from when I was a teenager living in California . you can bet he'll have a hell of a set of wings . I know I sound grim . maybe feeling sorry for myself before he's gone . I don't want to miss a minuet to greave and remember him for as long as I can . hoping for the best , He's a tough old bird .
