About Me

My photo
After working for like 20 yrs in several bodyshops as a painter I decided its time for me to do only things I like,so I quit my job and started restoring, building and painting of hot rods, customs and drag cars. Nostalgia style,custom paint and nostalgia drags is what I like. Located in Asperen, Holland.. So if you need new paint, a full customjob or metalflake on your car, rod, bike or anything else you can think of, contact me at info@pricelesspaint.nl. Visit also my other site, www.pricelesspaint.nl for more projects and photos.

Gene Winfield!!

On our way to the Hot Rod Reunion we stopped by Gene Winfield's place, this was a long-cherished desire of me to meet this great man, one of the living legends in custom car building and painting. Mr Winfield is 84 years young now and still very busy at work. A really nice man, took a lot of time for us and showing us all around his workplace. He is famous for his fantastic ' fadeaway ' colors as you can see in the photo's I took. Here is the shop and this is his backyard

She is also well known as "Miss Hurst"

The nostalgia funnycars / top fuel dragsters, the hot rods, the cacklefest, everything is awesome!  To start is here a movie of the little cacklefest held at the Double Tree hotel in Bakersfield after the reception and drivers meeting.
