The Passing of a Legend ~ Walt Prey ~
The man that has left his art on countless vehicles over the years including the world famous Gypsy Rose has passed away. Walt Prey leaves behind his art on countless custom vehicles and also leaves his influence on many of the top custom painters and pinstripers. Walt did it all from full paint jobs to pinstriping over the years.
