Gene Winfield's annual &quot;Open House&quot; Mojave CA, 11 Oct. I just left Gene Winfield's annual "Open House" A lot of neat people and the "Custom Cars" influenced by Gene Winfield, Ed Hines, George Barris and the other Greats. The annual Event is every October, usually the 2nd weekend. Mojave is 24 miles from my place. - - - Updated - - - Some more pics.... - - - Updated - - - By the way, that is Mr. Bill Hines....93 years young and smoking cigars ! He invented the "Chopped and Channeled" look. His Son, Mike posed with him. Bill Hines is now 93 years of age! Previous pics show Gene with some old friends, looking at scrap book pics from the early 50's Check out the 4-door Imperial Le Baron, protected in the hot and dry Mojave desert... Thats me with a "Flock of Edsels..." The Mojave Silver Queen Mine in the back ground. More pics to come.
