  1. Anyone here actually know Billy Gibbons?

    Looks like he's a relatively common participant in the Texas hot rod world.

    I think he's related to the guy who owns Gibbons Fiberglass bodys. and if i recall i think the one piece hood on the eliminator 34' ford is is the prototype for the one piece hood the make.

  5. I don't actually know him but I did stay at a Holiday Inn.

    In 1997, ZZ Top played a concert in sleepy little Prince George, B.C., Canada. We thought they must have gotten a little lost to be so far off the beaten track. Well anyway, we locals decided to park a bunch of hot rods outside of the venue so that they would be noticed during the sound check. The general thinking was that Billy would be drawn to us like a moth to a flame. He did not appear. It was a decent concert, not great. Billy is not my friend.

  8. Not even remotly close. Gibbons Fiberglass in is Gibbons, Nebraska and was started by Dwight Bond.
    I've known Dwight for over 30 years and Billy for about 15.
  9. I share the same last name but don't know him.:)
  10. What do you expect from a guy who misspells a word in his "signature" ? :D

    In an article about my shop the author said I look like the 4th member of ZZ Top, and, I have owned a '48 Cadillac Sedanette longer than Gibbons has had Cadzilla, but I don't know him and I don't believe I know anyone who does.

    Let me correct the title:
    Billy Gibbons; Coolest Dude on the Planet
  26. Boy! Thats a lot more than 7 degrees of separation.
  27. WTF dude?!?!?

    No, I was just wondering if anyone knew the guy. Like the title says.

    Me too. My dad had the poster and I found it in the garage! Hung it in my room, when my dad saw it he bought me tickets and took me to the Recycler tour show in Dayton. First concert I ever went to! Coincidentally also the first time I smelled the reefer!
  30. I usually don't care for the worshiping of celebrities, but the dude can wear an artichoke like nobody else.
