Gene Winfield is such a bad ass, a true American treasure that still gets out there and does it every day. Eighty six years old and he still travels around building/painting cars, still races his own cars at Bonneville and El Mirage at over 200MPH, and still teaches metal working classes at his shop in Mojave to pass on everything he’s learned over the years. A real legend and all around class act…
