Default Foose SSP Rendering

This past weekend I got the opportunity to meet Chips Foose, a person I've wanted to see in person for a very long time. While getting a photo with him, I requested a rendering of a Foose SSP. To help him with the design, I whipped out my camera phone and showed him a picture of my '90 TX DPS. He showed a little more interest in my MA SSP though! I was telling him how much I couldn't wait to "overhaul" the MA SSP, so he wrote me a little note!




You will be able to see more photos in a few days on my site...

That's so cool! I'm jealous! The closest I've been to Chip Foose is about 20 feet. Saw him at last years Autorama at Cobo Hall in Detroit.

I am not a big fan of Chip Foose, but the drawing is cool. He probably drew it in about 5 minutes, too. I can draw, but I am not that gifted to freehand like he does.

I am not a big Foose fan either but I grabbed the opportunity to meet him and have a picture made with him in October 2006 in Dallas.
Nice guy.

Outstanding! I'm a BIG Foose fan! I like how he takes a regular ball point pen and can whip out something awesome on paper.

Five minutes is right! That's how long he took with each person... he actually wanted to get to know a little about everyone in line. I was probably the 100th-120th signature and I was waiting 4 hours! Well worth it! He is an excellent guy!
