JEFF MYERS: THE BEATNIKS CLUB & ITS MEMBERS !
FROM HIS HOME BASE IN KANSAS, like Darryl Starbird, Elden & Jerry Titus, Keith Bright, Dennis McPhail, and a number of others that came from that area through the years, JEFF MYERS, is definitely one of the best Builders/Customizers in the business today. And, he's certainly one of the Hottest of the New Breed !
Jeff and I have known each other for a number of years and I highly respect his workmanship and dedication to his craft. In conjunction with that, when we did this Interview awhile back I wanted Jeff to explain, to those who may not know, the Origins of the Club he belongs to "The Beatniks".
Many superb cars come from the Beatniks Membership: Jack Rudy, Rick Dore, Gary "Chopit" Fioto, Dennis McPhail, Rod Fortier, Von Franco, Brian Everett, The Pizz, et al, many of whom are not only artists on canvas/easels, but turn out some phenominal machinery.
So, listen as Jeff Myers gives you the straight scoop on one of the most exclusive Rod & Custom Clubs in existence: THE BEATNIKS. PLUS, Jeff has some great advice to any up-and-coming builders that may be listening-in that you won't want to miss ! JK
