FROM HIS HOME-BASE OUT IN THE MOJAVE DESERT AREA OF CALIFORNIA, the Legendary Rod & Custom Builder/Painter GENE WINFIELD has become a WorldWide Traveler being sought-after for his expertise & knowledge.
Gene's been in demand for years here in the States for his superb, blended, fade-away, paint jobs, but his Hall Of Fame status is known the World over, so he travels to Canada, Australia, Sweden, New Zeland, and many other areas, to apply his trademarked paint & body work, hold seminars, and, attend car shows as a Featured Guest Celebrity.
WHEN WE DID THIS Late Night Interview in 2011 at the KKOA Lead Sled Spectacular, in Salina, Kansas, Gene and John D'Agostino had just returned from Australia, and in 2010 Gene had journeyed there to apply one his special paint jobs on the "Wild Cad" owned by Mario & Catriona Colalillo of Sydney, Australia. (Shown Here)
During the course of the Interview, Gene & I talked about his travels, how he liked all of the places he's been to, and, if there were any problems that came up through the years that had to do with any of his builds OR paint jobs. His answers were true, fun, and, revealing...as you'll find out !
PLUS, Gene also shares his opinion on what his objective is on any car he's ever painted.
Gene Winfield is a friend, but more than that, I have always respected his craftsmanship, his contributions to the R&C Industry, and, the kindness he shows to all who meet him. There's only one GENE WINFIELD...and he's always been T-H-E BEST !! JK
