I’m betting a lot of you guys don’t know who Gary Howard is. It would take me thousands of words to elaborate on the man as a custom car builder and as a person. In my mind, he’s the most accomplished traditional custom craftsman of our day and he backs that up by being quiet, soft spoken, shy… and more genuine that you could ever imagine. You can read more about him here.
In any case, Gary had a shop fire this past week. Something electrical went haywire in the attic of the building that holds his paint booth and he woke to find a charred mess. He has as much insurance as he can afford and it looks like he will be able to put up another building. BUT, the Texas clan is getting together in an effort to make life as easy as possible for him until then. He needs to get back to work and we’ve been trying to put together enough dough to cover the stuff insurance won’t.
Again, I know most of you guys don’t know Gary from Adam… But if you have a dollar to spare for a real good guy and a legend, we would sure appreciate the gesture. You can contribute to the Gary Howard fund here.
