I will truly miss my good friend Jules , as he was one very special man . When I was building my roadster and was starting the painting process , he tells me that he wants to do the rubout . I said " Jules buddy I appreciate the thought but I can't afford you ." He says , who said anything about money . Well , when I finished the paint Jules shows up and spent the next two weeks massaging my car like it was his own to a finish that was beyond perfect . He was a class act if ever there was one . I will always remember him driving by my shop in one of his many hotrods on the way to Art and Mike Chrisman's shop ( around the corner) and stopping to tell me that he had a bag of fresh tamales and to get my ass over and get some before those guys would eat them all . RIP my friend .
