I cannot remember such a great time I had in the last 4 days up in Canada with Gene Winfield and Top Ten ( Ken and Frank). My start of my Great white north adventure started on Tuesday night where we got pulled over half way up doing 20 mph over the speed limit and Bloody Jack didn't have his insurance papers or his registration in the truck. The cop took his license and went to his car. In about 5 minutes he came back and said pay attention to your driving and stay in the slow lane and let us go!!! This was the start of one great memorable week. We stayed at my Brothers house (thanks Mike) and then early headed off to Top Ten. Gene was impressive from the start. I don't know one person or have known one person with his energy. The first day we chopped Mikes car and had some personal training in the art of forming, straightening and welding metal which was very informative. We started at 8:00 AM and finished around 7:00 PM. This was Wednesday. Thursday we arrived a bit later at 8:30 and got some personal instructions how to gas weld aluminum and do some leading etc etc. Another informative day and lots of things to store in my memory bank. Pete ( Bloody Jack) left after that and I stayed back in Canada to see the famous Gene Winfield custom painting seminar that was a free bonus and one of the most informative days/night/morning!!!! Remember Gene is 82 and so far is getting about 6 hours of sleep at the most per night and is non stop. Well we arrived Friday at the Sikens paint training facility at about 7:30 AM and got busy working on Johns incredible car and prep for paint. It took a bit longer than expected so Gene pre mixed up some paint and got prepared and was busy running around letting people what he needed done. Gene went in the paint booth at 12:57 PM and started painting and never stopped till 3:30 AM Saturday morning!!!!!!!!!! Did I tell you he's 82? So Gene, Ken and Frank drove back to Kens house and tried getting a couple hours of sleep. I saw Gene and the guys at the Langley car show the next morning and Gene said he got 1 hour of sleep after the long marathon paint job and when he lay-ed down in his bed he came to the conclusion that he drank too much tea and his body was still painting!!!!!! I sat in a chair and asked if he wanted a seat and he said no thanks with a big smile and then said if he sits down, he'll fall asleep. So he then spent the next 10 hours standing on his feet signing autographs and treating every new face like a good friend!!! He is the funniest , nicest guy I have ever met and recommend this class to everyone just to meet this legend that just doesn't quit!!! Top Ten then had an Open house after the show and theres Gen still on his feet, smiling and laughing and get this "DANCING!!!!!!!!! WTF keeps this guy going? I don't think he's human!!!!! I bet in 4 days he only got 12 hours sleep!!!!!! Did I mention that he's 82? Wholly crap!!!!!! I still cant believe what a fun time we had!!! I feel privileged to have ever met Gene and to see his talents and his painting skills!!! There were about 8 of us that were the die hards that stayed with Gene till the end but we all sat down and he kept busting his balls the whole time in Canada!!! Thanks again to all the guys up there!!! I had a total blast and if you are ever in the Seattle area, stop on by!!! Now for the pictures!!!!!!!!!
