most people I met in my life I fell in love with Rick’s “laced” ’64 Impala long
before I met him. Lacing is an art form that was popular in the fifties and
sixties. Simply put, you take a piece of lace and spray over it transferring
the pattern to the car. It can be either real beautiful or not. Rick’s Impala
was a work of art. That’s how we met, my admiration for his work at the
inaugural Ottawa Autorama.
took over the show renamed the Ottawa Motorama this year but in truth it should
be named the Ottawa KUSTOM KAR SHOW.
This year along with Canada’s favorite hot rod girl, Twiggy, from Vegas
Rat Rods fame, Rick is bringing in famed customizer VooDoo Larry along with his
killer kustom the Sahara, a recreation of George Barris famed creation.
