We had a fantastic old school local dude hand letter the outside after many, many rounds of comping up ideas first, of course. Ron Wing of Precision Signs in Chicago is one of only a handful of folks we can trust to do it right.

We had to do some deep digging to find the old school driver’s seat. Totally utiliatarian. #nocomforthere
