Back to the Grind


Rolling Piece of Art

Thank you ALL for your kind words and thoughts over the last couple days.  The staff at SPEED Channel were absolutely incredible during the whole process and the support of our customers, friends and family has been overwhelming.  I can honestly say that the whole experience has been somewhat surreal.  I wouldn’t be telling the truth, however, if I said we were happy with the end result of the auction… unfortunately there is nothing that can be done about it and there is no point in perpetuating the rumours and conspiracy theories.  The purchaser is a well known collector who got ONE HECK OF DEAL (in our opinion) and we know he will appreciate the wagon and treat it with the respect it deserves.  Unfortunately that doesn’t make us feel a whole lot better as we still lost a big piece of ourselves on Saturday night.  Hopefully he understands that R’Evolution isn’t just another custom, it took heart and soul and was built with hours of blood, sweat and yes, even tears.  Before we left for Scottsdale our daughter asked me to tell the purchaser something very specific and I never had the opportunity to pass the message along so would like to take this chance to do so.

    I was shocked as well as anybody else who has seen your wagon over the last year when the bidding stopped at $170. You and your crew have created a rolling work of art. All I can is she’s going to a good home and she’ll be among some of the top cars in the country, Schiflett’s Zepher, White’s Airflow, Shelby’s Super Snake Futureliner the list goes on and on. Hope to see the Riviera finshed soon.
