Toronto Motorcycle Super ShowCome visit us at the 2020 Motorcycle Super Show at the Toronto International Centre January 03 to 05 2020 where we will have a booth in Hall 5.

RIP Rick Fabian 1956/2018. I collaborated with Rick on many outstanding show vehicles, including John St.Germain's Merc, Angelo's Road Runner, Dave Jolly's Lincoln and many other car projects that are featured on this site. Rick did the hard work and I got a lot of the glory for having painted over his perfect bodywork/prepwork . He was also a true friend and will be greatly missed - left way too soon.

Thanks to all who came out to Dave's Memmorial Bash and to Rick Fabian and CJ Kumar for organizing it.
