Linda Kay Burroughs, wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, stepped into heaven at 3:20 this morning.

Mom was an incredible woman. A force to be reckoned with. A truly inspirational lady. She loved God, her family, her friends, and her red 32 roadster.

I had the great pleasure of working beside mom for most of my career. The good days, the bad, even the days we butted heads. The biggest honor was the title of being her baby boy.

Mom preceded her husband, her daughter and son in law, her son and daughter in law, four grandsons, four granddaughters, a great grandson, and a great granddaughter. Mom loved her “little chicks”. Her greatest joy was having all of us together. She shined like a new dime when she got the chance to show us off.

Mom was adamant that we knew how much she loved us, and wanted us to know how much God loves us. Through the struggle, she had peace. Peace that God would bring us through it.

As we lean on that peace, we ask that you continue to pray for our family.

We’re having a celebration of life service for mom on Friday December 3rd at 10:30 am at Northwood Church and a BBQ get together at the shop on the 4th at 11:00 am.

All are welcome to both. Please bring your Hotrods, weather permitting, to both.

New designs from the Master Artist

This year we have been honored to be the featured Hot Rod Shop at the Lone Star Roundup.  I knew that with this honor, we needed to bring out some cool new stuff.  For some time now, I have been wanting some of Jeff Norwell‘s artwork  for the shop.  After a few e-mails, and some brainstorming secessions we had the sketches in hand.  Not long after that, Jeff sent the final designs.  And well, here they are!  Please don’t touch, the ink may still be wet.

I cannot sing anything but praises about Jeff Norwell’s talent. Not only did he get the job done when I needed, but went far and beyond what I thought they could ever look like.

These T-shirts will be on sale in our Store, and at our booth at THE LONE STAR ROUND UP. If you are able to make it to the show, please stop by and say hi.
