Josh and I met a man named Jerry Cooper a week ago and he showed us his 57 Ranchero with some red stripes on it. He said that it just didn't have that finished look that he was after. So saturday Josh and I went to his house and Josh added some white to the existing red stripes while I put some stripes on his old travel trailer that he has restored to pull behind the Ranchero. Against my better judgement I aggreed to stripe the back of the trailer which is corrugated metal while Josh worked on the Ranchero. These pics will show you just how good Josh is getting. Thanks Jerry for letting us work on the 57.
The whole family spent most weekends during the summer at one car show or another. We did a couple of charity shows with our friend Andy Kawahara of Andys Pinstriping fame. The "Dragon Wagon" that he painted for little Berkley's benefit show was awesome. I did a gold leaf dragon and the name on the side and Josh did some striping on the inside. The guy who won it in the raffle was Drew from one of our SLC Mopar clubs. He bought a whole wad of tickets (he really wanted to win). We have run into him at a couple of shows since then and he always has that wagon with him. Thanks Drew!
Well, I will post a bunch of pics from some of our fun this past summer. Hope you like them. Oh yeah, Andy, let me know when you get that chair painted.
