Friendship – Chris Vallone

I’ve been meaning to write about my friendship with good pal Chris Vallone. Today, I received his new newsletter that pretty much sums it up:

“I bumped into Eric on the Web sometime back a year or two ago. We have a lot in common, went to school for art, and got crazy about VWs.

He and his wife live in San Francisco, CA which is the mecca of dry VWs. Eric did an interview on me back in January of this year.

He has continued his interviews with others in the industry as well, take a peek on his site

I finally bumped into Eric at this past years Vintage VW Treffen show in So Cal, we hit it off well. Well I am here to tell ya that Eric is jumping in on the VW sales scene, he has started a small side biz of “Restoring the 1967 Oil Bath Air Cleaners.”

See the great thing about “US” artists is the attention to detail we put into our work, and these air cleaners are no exception.”

Chris also gave me a nice shout in one of his recent restoration tip videos.

I’m hoping Chris and I get to partner on some projects in the near future.
