Just got back from my visit to Orange County Choppers a few minutes ago. We drove over there this morning to talk about using out product exclusively on the show.

Met with Paul Jr. and Sr. and got to meet everyone else that is there (vinny, vinny's dad Mr. D, Mikey, and even Justin their painter) Mikey is even nuttier than he is on TV.

We are in negotiations to make a theme bike for our company. Should be real interesting.

It was really cool. They would not allow pictures taken in the shop, but I did get to snap a few of the signs over the shop and their "rides" (Three Hummer H2's for Paul, Paulie and Mikey) that were "dropped off" for them by a local dealer. I guess they are demos.

They get a ton of free stuff. They got a free $75,000 waterjet machine for machining parts. We gave them $10,000 in abrasive wheels and you'll see our banner in the main shop in the end of season 2. We also did get to talk extensively with Paulie about the fabricating and work he does. He gave us a quick tour, but only after the cameras were shut down. They will not allow anyone but OCC employees to be in the shop when filming. We did however go down to the lower shop while they were filming Mikey being a total goof. The dude was wearing shorts today and it was 14 degrees there. Just regular guys.

I did get to witness a behind closed doors ass chewing by Paul Sr. to a few of the worker bees in the lower shop. He was flying off the handle and he came out and apologized to us as we were with their sales guy (Vinny's dad) waiting to talk in the room.

The other funny thing was Mikey as we were leaving went out of his way to say goodbye to us as we were leaving. He was outside unburying a car out of the snow in shorts.

Was kinda cool. I always thought they were out in the country, but they actually are in a tiny industrial park off a main road.

No She Doesn't

She doesn't work at Hooters, but at every Hooters I've ever been, there is always someone that looks like her. At least what you see in the picture.:peace:

You should see the little beauty that OCC has behind the counter at their shop. She is gorgeous. She was wearing leather pants today with a tight shirt. I thought the owner of our company was gonna have to get his eyes popped back in.

Why wouldn't they allow camera's in the shop they have camera's in there filming there show. What wrong with them allowing you to take pictures.

They probably don't want to risk giving away the projects or content of future shows and maybe they want to keep privacy for their customers who have bikes in the shop.
