    Just made a donation. Met Gene at the UK NSRA Supernationals this year, here's a poor cellphone photo of a superb roofchop he was working on there.

  9. Not very often you can help a legend...

    It feels damn good!
     
  10. I just tossed in $50, pretty easy to do.

    I would suggest changing the title of this thread to:
    THE GO FUND ME ACCOUNT TO BRING GENE WINFIELD HOME IS LEGIT!
     
  12. I’ll second that.

    Donated. I took some courses at Gene's place, and my Chrysler would never have gotten a new floor properly done without him.

    Made a modest donation a few minutes ago, looks to be halfway there. I wasn't a big Barry Meguiar fan until I saw his donation on the GoFundMe page.

    You represent the best in our hobby, Gene, and I know you're a humble man because at the 2017 Syracuse Nationals, a man inside a large building saw my brother and me, standing outside locked doors. The man went out of his way approached the locked doors, and opened one so we could see the customized cars on display. My brother and I were amazed that it was you, the famous GENE WINFIELD who let us in. There's no doubt in my mind that you're a regular guy, Gene. God bless and get well.

    I don't think you can get travel insurance at 90 years old.

  20. Especially if you fly 60 times a year like Mr. Winfield does. At least that's what he told three weeks ago.

    great news - just have to wait for updates when he will travel home - probably not happy to miss his own car show - but, likely trying to figure out how to attend another show while overseas
     
  24. They were able to find a cheaper flight which is good but he is not ready to be released yet anyways so still time to reach the goal. Anyone going to the show this weekend they said they would be doing a Facebook call with Gene at some point during the show.

    I just got an email that the fund raising goal was met. They are leaving the fund open to help cover Gene's incidental expenses.

    yep, will be a lot of unexpected expenses with recovery - his 401K is likely a 401 Nailhead
