East Coast Artie started pinstriping at the ripe old age of 13. As he explains, ÛÏI worked at a body shop after school and I was fascinated by the striping that Kenny the Mad Striper did when he came in to do a car. One day Kenny handed me a brush, and that’s how I started. A month later I striped a Û÷57 Ford for $20. And by the next year I was striping cars in my driveway and in the high school parking lot.Û Forty plus years later Artie is still at it, running a sign and paint shop in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
