Piero, you get all the tough assignments. You sir, are one lucky son of a gun.
Thanks for the thread!!
leadslinger has always amazed me with his talents!
Yeah, and at age 90, the lacquer, lead, dust and cigars he's been breathing for 75 or so years look to have really slowed him down, LOL.
Guys like him and Winfield have so much enthusiasm for this that they can probably still run circles around some guys half their age.
What an incredible experience and priveledge it must be to work along side a legend.
Some of the many trophies he won during his career. These have not see the light of day in manny years. They were recently unearthed and cleaned up to be displayed at his garage.
really good thread
Great to see those out were they belong.
Kool as !!!
Wow! Just.....wow! It's one thing to know that some of the innovators,icons and simply best in the biz are still around but something entirely different to see them still at it and even more impressive is the willingness to share and pass it on.
Very cool to see these guys at work! Thanks Piero!
Bill Hines for President!! Great thread !!
I have worked with Gene twice and all I can say was WOW! That guy runs circle around all of us younger cats. Then he goes out and dances with girls all night and is there early the next morning to work his ass off and do it all again
The trophies that Bill HInes has are no doubt for his own cars. He built many cars that the owners got the trophy before we started to recognize the builders. He built many of the best of show cars in Detroit for years and the owners got the trophies.
Who says "lead, lacquer, and cigars" are bad for you, Bill certainly wouldn't be their poster boy.
Bill Hines is amazing and it's cool to see a guy like Brad Masterson following in his footsteps! Thanks for continuing to document all this Piero.
Cool look into the world of an automotive legend......
