The most important character trait one can have is a never quit attitude. And that is what I like about this man, whether he is forming a piece of flat sheet metal into a work of art, fixing and restoring an old wood frame side car, or getting wiped out by a hellish storm. He is always leaning forward.
Never give up, never turn around!

Rooster , you nailed it on the head. He just seems to pull on his boots in the morning and keeps moving forward.
Thanks La Dolce for the new post . I'm guessing Mr. Gambino stayed in the North East .

So yes everyone, there has been a super big secret project going on that's half the reason there hasn't been many post. For the past few months its been just some small but intense repair jobs on vintage tanks. Not much to show.

All leading up to the main event. Its been months or years in the works but Dick has pulled up tent stakes and headed west. Dick and the landlord had not been seeing eye to eye for some time. Plus the old building was in rough shape so it was time to look for greener pastures.

This is the last photo i have of my friend, the Great Dick Gambino here in NJ. All you Texas boys just got very lucky because that where Dick was headed in this van he picked up for $800 in non working condition. That long ass flatbed was loaded by fork lift with all the heavy shop stuff. The rest was stuffed into the van. Dick made the cross county trip in a few days and is currently setting up the new shop.

Thanks for the update Dolce. Glad to hear Dick's finally gotten himself moved. I hope the new shop comes up to working condition fast, and that we get to see more updates. It's a long trip for you to ride out and take pictures now, eh? So be sure to plan that into your calendar early! Well, maybe a TX Jockey Journal rider can take over.

Amazing story, that gent is a true master of his craft. To call himself a blacksmith is like calling a pig in lipstick Pamela Anderson in Baywatch.

Just another chapter for Mr. Gambino.
Maybe Winger can give us an update when his pop gets settled !?

When HER pop gets settled. Yes, hopefully. (Her picture is in this thread somewhere BTW, worth digging out...)

Midland does seem like a unlikely place , unless he is going to weld oilfield pipe . With the new oil field boom in that area there is some money floating around . But I have heard the cost of living is crazy high . But glad to see him in the area

exactly. the agribiz there went belly up years ago and it's been shrinking for awhile now. the aquifer that supplies that region is dropping fast and won't recover in our lifetime. i wouldn't drink what's coming out of the taps now.

A quick note from Midland, Dad is set up in his new shop and starting to get back to work. Unfortunately the weather he had hoped to leave in Jersey followed him we have had 2 snows and cold temps since he arrived. I will post some pics when I get back but until then thanks for all the support.

Cheers

Winger
