Default Mike Nichols '32' 5 window hill climb car

This summer, Mike Nichol hired me to letter his '32' 5 window coupe which he ran at the Hot Rod Hill Climb which took place last month in Georgetown, CO. Mike came up with the idea to re-run this event which originally took place in 1953. Mike put a lot of work into this event and his car and from what I hear it turned out to be a huge success. He is planning to run his second annual in 2014. For more information, here is a link to his website. There are more pictures of this event on the H.A.M.B..
