FOR ALMOST SEVEN DECADES GENE WINFIELD has been one of the most-respected Rod & Custom builders in the Industry. But Gene's talents are truly multi-dimensional, and what many might not be aware of is the fact that through the year's Gene has also left his mark firmly imprinted in the TV & Movie Industry...as well as TV Commercaials and many other important Projects that he's been associated with.
SO, early on a Sunday morning in Salina, Kansas at the KKOA's 34th Annual Leadsled Spectacular, Gene & I had a light breakfast and then settled-down for a one-on-one Interview about a fantastic new book that he's published.
It's called "GENE WINFIELD'S TV & MOVIE CARS, COMMERCIALS, AND, SPECIAL PROJECTS", it's written in an excellent and easy-to-read manner by Nicholas K. Whitlow, and has a Foreword by Chip Foose...who Gene's known since he was a kid ! (Chip's Dad, Sam Foose, another legendary R&C Builder, worked for Gene on three separate occasions.) This book is a MUST for all Gene Winfield fans...and anyone who's ever met Gene in-person and knows what a Super-Pro he is !

YOU CAN HEAR GENE'S PASSION for his craft, which is really an art-form of its own, as you listen to this Interview. Gene and I have been friends for a long time, but his constant, dynamic work-ethic never ceases to amaze me !
AND, as you'll find out as you listen, no matter how long I've known Gene, many things that are covered within the scope of this book, are things I'm finding out for the first time !! Like Gene says: "Everyday's a School Day !" Long live Gene Winfield !!!
ONE OF THE THINGS THAT makes this very special book of Gene's even more impressive, is the fact that Gene made sure that the book was printed & published right here in the U.S.A. !
