Just Treat Street Goofin

Jose and Carlos New Years Eve ’92 or ’93.
With the help of an old Pat Gahnal engine swap article from Rod & Custom, we thru a V-8 into Carlos’ 54 Chev. Blew it up New Years Eve cruising downtown FRISCO.
By next week we had another engine in it.
36 Chev in the back and that’s Jav’s Merc blocking the driveway.

Gil Ortega

Some years ago I reminisced about the good ol' days back in the 50's, my time. I just started sketching some of these scenes for fun, and the more I sketched, the more the memories came back to me. I've caricatured a lot of these good people just to make the occasion seem more humorous.
Scenes like the corrido group I'm sure you've seen or been asso­ ciated with many times and for that matter, still continue today.

I'm sure everyone who views this book will in someway relate to it.
Many of the scenes I witnessed, such as "July 4th Beach Party" (a more current event) also "Drifter Party", etc.

So, I hope everyone who views this book will enjoy it and remember the way it was.
