Hey, I jus' finished reading the first half of an article, in the latest TRJ mag- azine, on " The Ayala Brothers'', by Pat Ganahl. The Ayala Brothers.... talk about two guys that belong on "The Mount Rushmore" of the Kustom world! It got me thinking (not something I'm accused of often, anymore) about how many major and medium players in the world of Kustom car builders, that are still living. Guys who have had little of their stories told in book form. There have been some self- published autobiography on some of the lesser knowns, and a long over due supply on "the usual suspects" i.e. Roth, The Barris bros. & Kenny Howard, but what about the guys that filled in the blanks in the kustom world? Most of these guys are octoginearians, plus. That doesn't leave much time for their stories to be told, firsthand. Besides Bertolucci, Jeffries, Dick Dean and Joe Ballion, who else needs to make your list? Swankey devils C.c. "Meanwhile, back aboard The Tainted Pork"
