KNOWN WORLDWIDE as one of the Original Pioneers and Innovators of the Rod & Custom Industry, GENE WINFIELD talked with me about two of his Favorite Cars: the aluminum-bodied "Reactor" & the "Strip Star", PLUS, T.V. & Movie Cars !
Gene and I have known each other for many years, and he is not only one of the best Customizers & Pioneers of all-time...he's one of the nicest and best persons you'll ever meet ! JK

"THE REACTOR", By Nicholas K. Whitlow, is the newest book on Gene's long career of building some of the most fantastic custom creations you'll ever see ! Nick's previous collaboration with Gene produced the great "TV & Movie Cars" volume, and this one puts the focus solely on "The Reactor"...which may just be Gene's ultimate creation !!
The book is available by contacting Gene by eMail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or, by calling his shop at 661-824-4728, and is also available from the author, Nicholas K. Whitlow at: NKW1965@aol.com. Believe me, this 100 Page, hard cover, book is one that you'll have for a "keeper" ! JK
