After meeting Cass a few times with Dan I can tell you he really takes shaping and fabrication to a different level. He makes EVERYTHING!! From hinges and door latches, to trim and even bumpers. I think he isn't that well known because he is into the higher end restoration work. If he was on the west coast, and did shaping on more hotrods and streetrods that make it into the high circulation magazines his name would be more known.

I really don't think Cass cares if his name is out there. Through the years he has had some nice jobs working on some super high end restorations and really never has had to go out after work. He has a small shop and has worked allone with help from his wife and freind. It seems to be enough for him. I respect him for that!!

The book being published is the best news I've heard in a long time!!

I talked to him on Tues. and he was hoping to have them hopefully when he gets back from Washington on the 17th of next month . He also said the price on the books is going to be 49.95 I am going to see if he will come down and sign some books if they are in and maybe we can get some of that knowledge to rub off on some of us . I'll check in as we get closer.
