    The 39 guy

    Now there is a man that lived a full and productive life! He has certainly left his mark in our hobby leaving behind many custom cars that many are very proud to own. Rest in peace Mr. Hines.

    His work ethic at his age, and matter of fact humility was what I admired. He was willing to pass on his knowledge and he built what he thought was cool with his own hands. Condolences to his family and friends, guys like him leave a big hole when they leave.

    I believe those are what kept him going like a much younger man's pace.

    What a story, I think the cigars filtered the lead fumes out of the air.
  27. Amazing man, never got to meet him. Always admired his work. I'm more into traditional hot rods than customs, but I've always been impressed with his workmanship.
