    Worth every penny, 100x, both days! Dress warmly. Even with the insulated Carhart, and the hoodie, I was cold.

    I can now lead with confidence. This man is a genius.

    This should NOT be missed. The man is a walking metal University. There's little chance that you could advance your skills like this, at any school, at any price, let alone this fast.

    Holy shit what a weekend. This man is truly a master of his craft. 84 years old, fighting a cold, and a busted wing and he out worked over 40 of us half his age!! Dude is a machine. Super down to earth, will talk to anyone about anything, and his skills are unbelievable.All in all a totally kick ass weekend and I would do it all over again. If you ever have the chance, beg borrow or steal to get your ass to one of Gene's classes!! Here's some shitty cell pics I took:

    Worth every dollar, the traveling expenses is what kills ya. Went last year, wish I could go again but I think I'll save up for going to the Sit-Down!

    Gene Winfield is a walking, talking story of American Hot Rods and Kustoms.
