Dennis O’Brien from O’Brien Truckers created the Low n Slow car plaque 
 “The plaque is made of pure aluminum ingot material from a chemically engraved pattern. Each plaque is made using the time-honored sand-casting process, just like plaques made back in the 1950s,” said Dennis. “First we start by pressing sand against the pattern. Next, we pour molten aluminum into the sand model. Once it solidifies, the mold is broken apart, the casting is cut off and the piece is finished off in ‘Ramone’ purple.”

  1. Thanks for the plug.
    From all I've read (and from my buddy Bob Hendrickson's comments when he called from there) the new park is fantastic. Guess we'll have to make room for it next time we're in the LA area...
