Peter Gentile of Detroit, Michigan. In 2018 Peter told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama that he got interested in custom cars as a young boy; "My older brother went to school with Jerry Yatch, and Jerry would bring his Merc to our house and I would gaze at it. I learned where Bill "Shorty" Hines as we called him had his shop at that time on Dix and Hanford in Lincoln Park. I would ride my bike to Bill’s shop and watch him work his magic with lead on the fins of Lil Bat. I learned how to lead from watching him but never as good as him doing door handles hoods and deck lids."[1]
