    Now when do you start building the new shop/parking garage? At this rate, you need it!
    Oh, and love the truck! You say traditional, that image is the style that comes to me. Congrats!

    In all seriousness, have you ever published or printed the history of how your life evolved into this area, how you acquired the collection of historic vehicles, how you morphed into a maker of clones, and maybe document everything in your collection (art, old tools, collectables) for viewing by the general public?
    I would pay to see the artifacts you have.

    Now, I'm going out to my tiny garage and have a pity party thanks to you.:D

    Manager or just the adult supervision? In either case, I propose that we have a museum in Arizona so people in the land without snow can enjoy his work. Just send two or three of his cars to me and I will make sure my neighbors see them.

    Congratulations on getting Jim's pick up. Those air brushed signs look like Tom Davison's handiwork. The pearl paint was done by Bob Brookins in Des Moines in late 1966, early 1967. He did this while doing the original paint and body work on my Nomad. I originally striped it in a butterscotch color. The lace paint must have been added around 68/69 along with the green stripping. It looks like the stripping may have been done by Bob Butterly due to the unevenness of the lines, he used a quill instead of a stripping brush so he couldn't pull a very long line. It's good to see the trucks in the right hands.
