    I have watched from the Wings at all of Johns projects. John Is a dear friend ,We “know” each other well , from my selling him my 40 ford in the 60’s,through the Dover , Sycamore and Danbury Stock car days. He’s a special guy ,with a real knack for “knowing” people, and my life has greatly been influenced by his always having the right thing to say ,when I needed it. His automotive creations are a inspiration to us who love the cars ,and the Dover memories. Job Well Done ‘Shimer’…can’t wait til you report that “run on the Bridge” with the headers open…..Frankie will like that ,he’ll hear it and see your smile .

    Looks like he’s using Gold Lettering Enamel …Brother of the Brush!…..The black outline ,with a little white highlight,is a through back to traditional Fire Truck Gold lettering…Makes it pop. Walter has that Old Skool flair & freedom a hand done brushed job can have without the ‘mechanical’ computer restrictions…Mr “J” in jersey (Famous Air-brush Lettering GURU) says it gives the job , “heart” ….Human touch and the Sign ARTIST signature. Notice,I said Sign Artist…not Sign’ maker. Anybody can buy equipt. Walter has the magic ingrediant ! —-> Talent .’….starting a new thread soon …so’s yo’s guys can see my hand lettering since I moved down here.( Going Back into it !,for all the guys building Nostalgia (Before Computer) cars….Make sure Water gets a gander at it. .

    Awesome job Lou ! … designed it specifically to match “Period” layout & printing techniques of the sixties .It matches the exact lettering I did on the front fenders of the “pumpkin” …all hand designed. Louie and I have coorsponding sign software so computers can “talk” back and forth via the internet …And his Imprinting equipment ‘replicates’ screen printing ( that was, all there was, back then) with great out door duribility, unlike the current digital print stuff. Like the A-Team “I like it ,when a plan comes together” Now ‘Thats’ A collectors Item !
