why did this have to happen? I never knew you, but i feel your presence in this yard filled with Autopartscars, the boxcars you always used to paint. I catch alot of your stuff regularly there. I still remember reading your interview in "Iron Burners" on how you got into trains.....
You said somethin like "on one of my many missions, I stumbled onto this yard full of flats, and was curious as to where theyd go" somethin like that. I wish people like you weren't taken so early in life. I hope karla is doing well, as your family and friends as well. Rest In Peace John.
just caught the last one...so very missed
Some might find it funny, or stupid.
One of my "If I was Rich, When I am Rich" is that I am going to buy the boxcar or frieght car of the fallen writers and legends such as NACE and others that were so committed and dedicated in their work that they influenced and touched the entire community.
Also try to pass stronger laws against drinking and driving.
And I say this, if you do DRINK and DRIVE, don't bother comming in this page anymore.
And please don't tell me about it, for I will spit in your face and destroy all of your crap called work.
That is respect, and learned, and going on in life.
That is making a difference, and keeping respect alive.
Time for Change.
legends never die...

Friday when I got off of work, I took a walk down to a local yard (denver).......Usually I dont take to many photos, but I decided to buy a disposable camera before i headed down there...I was walking the line.....Flicking a few cars.....I stummbled upon a "zeph", and nace car....A Green car.....
I hadnt seen a nace piece firsthand... AMAZING....I sat there and stared for 15 minutes....Easily...
Lines were chopped up to perfection...
Blew my mind......So damn clean, and so one of a kind...
I knew he was a real dope writer from all the magazine/video shit I have seen...But seeing it firsthand, really proved to me how good he really was...
Thanks for the inspiration......Your stuff still lives on....
Ps....I will UL the flicks when I get to use a scanner...
It has been 5 years today since John (Nace) was killed by a drunken driver. When the hospital called and told me, my life shattered. I wish for his friends who were in the car with John that day have recuperated and are doing fine with their lives. I have been reading "The Heavens" since then and wish all the families and friends of the seemingly endless listings of people passing, that they pray for their losses and look forward to better days ahead. I am appreciative of the kind and thoughtful remarks made about John. He was a good son, friend and a person with a big heart. If you knew him you knew this to be true. He was always willing to help his friends. Thank you to each and every one of you who remembers John as an artist and friend.
5 years.. so much has happened. i cant even fathom where the style would be.. to this day the things he was doing then are still solid and ahead of the game. he was a true inspiration and im proud to able to say we are crew. he is sorely missed and will never be too far out of mind. im in cincy, i saw one of your freights from 95 here rolling the other day. rest in peace john, until we meet again..
5years. i will never forget being in that hospital in that room knowing why we were in that room. i think about it often. my convictions about drinking and contempt for driving drunk seem to grow still to this day and im an old man. my thoughts to your family and your close friends who have not forgot about the king who we were lucky enough to call a friend...
RIP KING NACE DF
rest in peace nace. im sure he's bombing the heaven express right now.
