33626050_1539173634786635_r.jpegRecently our good friend, mentor and Hot Rod & Custom Car Idol, Gene Winfield was on a car show tour of Europe. While in Finland he had an accident and broke his hip. This required surgery including a stainless steel plate and screws. The surgery went off without a hitch and he is recovering and being moved out of a critical care unit to a recovery unit. Though it gave us our first "Bionic Customizer", due to prior medical conditions, oxygen and healing requirements he can not be transported by regular means to the US and his beloved shop in Mojave, Ca.  This will require a specialized transportation for medical purposes. These flights are extremely expensive and are his only means of transportation back to us in a timely manner so he can heal in the comfort of familiar surroundings and people that can give him the care and love that we all know he deserves. This is where we, his beloved friends, fans, admirers, supporters and loved ones come in. We need YOUR help to get him home. Every donation helps no matter how small it may be. It is the least we can do for all he has given and taught us over the last seven decades of devotion to our favorite passions and creations. As a devoted car customizer, race car driver, teacher and mentor I am reaching out for him to all of these communities for help in this endeavor. Thank you and remember "Every Day is a School Day!!!!"  Lets bring Gene home together!!!!

Thank you everyone for all you have done. We have met our basic transportation needs and are just waiting on the doctors evaluation to proceed further. I am leaving this up and running to cover any emergencies or added expenses that may occur before, during or after the flight. I cant thank you all enough for all you have done. I am amazed at the support that has happened in such a short time. You guys rock and ill update you all as I receive information.

As you all may have noticed, our goal has been substantially reduced. Thank you all so very much. We are almost there. I cant say thank you enough. I dident expect this to take off so quickly and with such fire. You folks are awesome. To bring you all up to speed, Gene will be speaking with the doctor on Monday and we are now in stand by mode waiting to make the flight arrangements to get him home. As the day and weekend progress I will be updating you as I receive information.


Thank you,
Johnny B Good

Sincerely,
Johnny B Good
