Temper Tantrum!




Here's a recent project I worked on for my pal Deron Wright of the Burbank Choppers. This was a gift for his son, and let me tell you, that's one lucky kid.

The body is a standard 60s vintage pedal car with an incredible candy tangerine job by Nick "O" Teen, the blower is sculpted and cast in resin by Lou Z, while Deron handled the design, machining, and fabrication of the steering, suspension, and wheels. I was left to design and execute the lettering in variegated gold and One Shot enamel. I'd call the whole thing a success and a definite pleasure to take part in.

More pictures and comments from the builder can be found here.

I almost never drop responses, but i did
some searching and wound up here "Temper Tantrum!". And I do have 2
questions for you if you usually do not mind. Is it only me or does it look as if like a few
of these comments come across as if they are coming from brain dead visitors?
:-P And, if you are writing on additional online social sites, I'd like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of all of your community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the
shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic
but I had to tell someone!
