Flashback Friday: Celebrating 20 years in business!

In celebration of our 20th anniversary, the staff here at Sticky Fingers thought it would be fun to share some of our more notable jobs we have done over the years in a Flashback Friday series.

We will start way back in 1992, two years before SFD when John (Sticky) was still honing his skills at Paint N' Place in Placentia, CA. At the beginning of the season John Pugh decided that he no longer wanted to paint dragsters so he dropped off Kenny Bernstein's top fuel dragster body work & left. This was Sticky's job application at P n' P, layout the graphics on The Budweiser dragster!

In total contrast to what we do now, this car is all paint & no decals. All of the lettering is hand cut on frisket paper taking about two weeks to complete. "This painstaking process was all we had back then but it was so much fun, that's when I knew I had a skill I could make a living at. The things I learned back then working for Jerry Seivers I will always remember."

This car went on to be the first Dragster in history to exceed 300MPH in competition and now resides in the NHRA Museum in Pomona, CA. A great way to start our graphics career.
