Model Kit Box Cover - 2001 re-issue
"Well you can imagine the excitement when I first showed the 'Outlaw.'
All the guys had been aced out with one grand swoop. I had everything chrome plated.
I took trophy after trophy. Guys were throwin' their hands in the air. How was they gonna beat me?
It was really unfair for me to compete & after I got aced out at the Oakland Roadster show
(Around 1960) for usin' the new nylon lock nuts and not havin' cotter keys in my ball joints
I never again tried to compete for trophies. They are spiritual & I carry them in my heart.
I figure my stuff is so whacky it can't be judged anyway. I traded for a T-shirt booth
or went for appearance money."
