Rat Fink Reunion 2009

Second Day of the Rat Fink Reunion '09, getting ready to head out and Mama K took a picture of me and my beautiful wife.

Laying some stripe on the hood of a truck with no stabilo lines, for the first time! And I must say it was a little nerve-racking. Trial by fire I guess. It ended up turning out pretty good.

I also laid some stripe on this helmet.

Hanging out at Ed Roth's house on Friday.

Some of Ed Roth's original pinstriping work on a Cushman Scooter at the house, AWESOME!

This was my first year pinstriping at the show, and I was able to hand out an award for 'Artist's Choice'. I chose a '23 Ford Bucket, with a cool bomber seat and airplane rivets on the dash. It had some imaginative styling, it was awesome.

This year was by far the best year. Being a first year pinstriper (4th year at the show itself) everyone is so nice and welcoming. I look forward to many years to come. Thanks to Ilene for all the hard work that goes into making each year special.


  1. You did a great job this weekend babe. I was nervous for you doing that hood without using the stabilo and you totally rocked it! How lucky am I to have such a kick ass husband!

  2. WoW! I agree with Michelle, absolutely excellent work, I'm so very proud of you. And I LOVE the pic of you and Michelle, but more I love the way you two collaborate on everything, support each other, and are each other's best strength. I love you both, my little Dynamic Duo :)

  3. Hey I appreciate the recognition on my '23 T this weekend. I feel honored to put your art on display in my shop you do awesome work. I feel like I should be giving you something:) Just so you know I hand built the seat and it was my first time working with aliuminum. Thanks again, Dustin Everett
