a few years ago Yosemite Sam was invited to Toledo NNL and I talked him into doing a panel for me. We went back to his hotel and he painted it on a desk in his room! This is a rare peice for him since he used 4 colors of paint. I ask him to totaly just paint it with no sugestions from me. He did this in @ 1 hour. He is one of the old guys pinstriping in the 50's around Detroit area

Yes Sam is a truely gifted artist. I to have one of his paintings hanging on my wall.
At the North American Model Car contest (NAMCC) held in Detroit back in '98 he did a demo of flame layout. In les than half an hour he had the entire wall of the Hotel meeting room taped in flames and ready to paint.
Hos custom painted model cars are sculptures that would fit into any art museum.
thanks
