  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!

    wishing for the best. What I admired about him from a distance was his willingness to show others.

    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
     
  11. Get well soon 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.

  26. What a living legend.. wonder if the lead fumes and cigars kept him going all these years. All the best to Bill Hines!

    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 .
