So I got to meet an icon of the TOS world today, Gene Winfield. He was at the Syracuse (NY) Nationals classic/custom car show. He had a booth there promoting his company a rod and custom shop in California. Of course, his name should be familiar to fans of the TOS series as the builder of the studio mockup of the Galileo while working at AMT. Of course, ST was the farthest from my thoughts and I was very surprised.
At 90 years young, he is still working and on the show circuit. We spoke for a few minutes, and I got a pic of him and I, then let Gene go back to work.
