    I met Gene at the Fleetwood Country Cruize-in her in Ontario Canada last year
    and all I have to say is he's a true gentleman and it was truly a pleasure to talk
    with him.
    He doesn't look 84

    seatex,

    Everytime I'm in the presence of Winfield & Barris, I've gotta standback, get outta the way, and, duck for cover...'cause they're BOTH "Chick Magnets" ! :D

    Barris comes up here every year to the Fleetwood Cruize-in and they have a dance
    there as well . He's got the ladies lined up to dance.
    Another true gentleman who will spend all day talking with you.
    Can't believe I've been lucky enough to meet George and Gene
     
  13. Cool! Thanks for sharing, I see Gene out at El Mirage all the time and he seems like one of the youngest guys there. Full of energy and still has an eye for the ladies. ;)

    mctim64...

    Gene has always loved to race ! He's still got his eye on a record run at Bonneville one of these days...and knowing Gene, if the weather co-operates, he'll make it.

    BUT, he never forgets his roots, as he talks about in our above Interview.
