    So around 5 pm Central Standard time one...Gene Winfield lands in Milwaukee Wisconsin. Casey takes him directly to the Nite Owl and is welcomed by a few of us. This is one experience that I will never forget. He is honestly one of the greatest guys to talk to. If first impressions are any indacation of what this weekend will be like, I can't f'in wait. Here are some pics just to tease. I will post more from the class when it's all said and done.

    He is a great guy, he talked to my dad who still cooks at the resturant every day at 70years old, for about a half an hour. A true custom hero. He bullshited about his growing up and family being in the resturant buisness. He even made it a point to say a special goodbye to my 3 year old niece Clara. Gene if you see this.....you can have all the pecans you ever want at my place!!!

    what a great man!!!

    After the class there is going to be a garage crawl to see some of our junk. Hey I know Milwaukee is not the center of the hot rodding world but this weekend is going to be pretty cool. Maybe there will be posts of guys wanting to move here!!!!
