Shop looks very nice. What year is the El Camino? Looks just like my '82 except mine has 69 SS Chevelle wheels and over 300,000 miles. I've owned it 20 years coming up in January..Dale

The cars an 83 Caballero.
As far as full? It is a well used building.
My Dad has ran construction business out of here since 1968 and he does have alot of tools and equipment
Not alot of petro inside yet but I'm working on him.

Thank's again for the compliments!
Ranger Bass Bass Boats are built in Flippin. I know some of you
have heard of them. By far the best bass boat out there. IMO
My Dad made the neon signs. The pic's really don't do them justice. He made alot of neon back in the 50's& 60's in Oklahoma
City and Vegas. Wished I had some from back then. He also tell's
stories of how they used to change out signage and store the old at the shop. Then slow times they would clean the shop and take them to the dump by the truck loads. YES TRUCK LOADS! Make's me sick to even think about it. Them stories are depressing. Joey I'll look you up the next time I come home in Feb.

Jerry,

Does your dad still make the neon signs? I'm just a little farther west of him in Harrison.

(Does your dad still make the neon signs? Jim)


Jim,
Yes he does still bend. He has a plant that he's setting up at home but he doesn't have it operating yet. He does some work for a sign shop in Mtn. Home with access to their shop for now. If you have something you need made/repaired he would be glad to talk with you.
