    I had the honor of hosting Gene at my house for four days in 2010 and again in 2011 when he put on his workshop in our shop at the college. The first was his general metalworking class. He included demoing his famous fade painting on four panels. The second year the class chopped a ‘51 Merc. Both were fantastic.

    Most enjoyable was sitting around my house and shop talking cars. He can go on and on with story after story of his life and times. I just soaked it all up. Great times and a lengendary man.

    I see Gene was over in AZ recently.
    Still walking with sticks but looking a picture of health.
    Any other reports on how he is getting on???

    Saw Gene on a motorized scooter last week at Barrett Jackson, made sure to give him the thumbs up, he smiled and gave me a wave.

  9. Several years ago I was at a show in Worcester, Mass with my son ( dual quad 55 here on the HAMB ) and my daughter-in-law. Gene was there with his display, and my son and daughter-in-law were BS ing with Gene. At one point he said to them, watch the store, and the money, and walked away. Later when Gene came back, my son told me what Gene did. I walked over to Gene, and made mention of what Gene did. He said that my son and daughter-in-law were good trustworthy people. It made me feel very proud of them that he trusted them with all of his wares, and money.
     
  10. If that ain’t a class act I don’t know what is.

    His style for the most part isn’t my cup of tea...but his talent and contribution to hot rodding is beyond reproach. He’s definately on the Hot Rod Mount Rushmore.
