A Thanks to Ed "Big Daddy" Roth

As a pinstriper I feel like I owe a lot to those that came before me...I have been practicing my Rat Fink's and I am finally getting good enough that people want them! This one was created for Mark in Thousand Oaks California...Thanks to Mark as well, for all the nice words. It's not quite finished yet, as it will have a distressed look on the edges but it's almost there!

I feel like it needs to be summer...I miss warm, even hot, I miss car shows, I miss softball etc...I finally have a "shop truck" I will be taking to the shows and I'll post pics of it soon! :)
Till next time...

Long live the Fink...

As is tradition every year at the Rat Fink Reunion, The artist's give out an "Artist's Choice" award to their favorite vehicle at the show. I thought I would get a jump on mine since my life is about to get a whole lot more exciting, and I'm not sure I will have time to do it once my bambino arrives! :) This years "trophy" from me is a metal panel that features my man Fink doing some ca-razy stripe and letter work...and to finish it off I also distressed the panel so it looks like it was hanging in Ed's shop in Maywood California back in the early sixties. I hope whoever receives this enjoys it as it was a labor of love to make! :)
Thanks to all...

And this is some new stripes on the tailgate of my truck!
