Pictures of a thousand words

A few weeks ago I was introduced as a fabricator to a tattoo artist /hot rod guy.  As I dont look like the typical California metal fabricator... He tried to test me.  He said he built all these rad  1920's-1930s cars. Then he asked where, what and who I worked with. Since he was super "hot rod"  I Just told him I had worked at Metalcrafters last year while doing projects with Chip Foose and Mike Alexander of the Alexander bros.  Well, since he wouldn't know or care if i told him about the drift or time attack cars I've built. Of course he thought I was pulling his leg.  I laughed and said I got nothing to prove to him nor anyone.  Maybe next time I wont forget the Layrite pomade or whatever "hotrodders" use. I didn't build any of the cars to follow... However I did have the honor to work with them on other projects.
Line up of legends. Foose P-32 Lincoln, Mike Alexander jr's Camaro and the Alexander Bros. Barracuda.  Two of which are in the Hot Rod Hall of Fame.
Yeah, Lincoln Flathead V12
This car was originally built in 1966 as a Demo car for Plymouth/Chrysler.  It was recently restored at Metalcrafters.

Like i said, legends.
