D&A Sand & Gravel likes their trucks to look good & patriotic.
Gary has been LETTERING their fleet of trucks since 1990. Each truck is artistically different to some degree. AIRBRUSHED LETTERING with a urithane clear coat protects the lettering from the cement acids & continued everyday washing. The very first lettering job still looks new today.

RACE CAR LETTERING
The only Ford to be sponsored by the famous Motion Performance speed shop of the '60s & 70's was the Mustang, the "HUGGER MUGGER." GARY, "THE LOCAL BRUSH" was the go to guy, for race car lettering on Long Island & lettered all of the Motion race cars. Gary hand lettered the Mustang in 1967 & after a long restoration project, just re-lettered it again in 2010, exactly as it was originally.

The very popular car of that show, "DRAGULA" built by George Barris was just restored on Long Island, New York, by Andy Perillo of New York Custom Coach. Gary was asked by Andy to reproduce the exact Lettering that was on the original car & to Airbrush the marble grill for the car. (actually Grandpa Dracula's tombstone)
