I see Gene's name pops up here quite often and he is sure well known amongst our community. I just wonder if folks would be willing offer up some of the stories and post pic's of the projects he has been involved in. This guy is a living legend and I thought it would be nice to pay him tribute while he is still around. For me I have met him 3 times that I recall, once at the Lone Star Round up a few years back. He sure gets around, I was supposed to attend one of his many metal shaping classes at a hot rod shop venue in Longmont CO, but sadly I was unable to attend for other reasons. I note that he had a accident recently and hope he is on the road to recovery. I don't know him well enough to offer up any stories but do note he is always a guest or mentioned on hot rod shows or at events. So how about it... Roast him if you like, I'm sure he would enjoy a laugh. I'll start by saying he is no Betty Paige or Linda Vaughan but still one of our icons.
