Jimmy Shine Stuff For Sale

Just sat and watched the last three episodes of Hard Shine again today. I've had them on my DVR waiting to put them on a VCR tape for my pop. We had another snowday today, so it gave me the opportunity. I also including an episode of Monster Garage were Jesse James and crew take a stock Model A Sedan and convert it into a chopped, sectioned, and channeled Ratrod...very sick. Then I finished the tape with an Overhaulin' episode where a school teacher gets her 1964 Malibu overhauled.

I was curious to how "Dave" the guy from Ohio who won the job at So-Cal Speed Shop is getting along. (Three cheers for guys from the Midwest!). Anyhow, went to the Jimmy Shines website, then the So-Cal Speed Shop site, but haven't been able to find anything. I did however run across a couple of vehicles that Jimmy has for sell.
