“Creativity is a highfalutin word for the work.”
Mike Clines started pinstriping at 14 and pinstriped his first car when the manager of the local paper store asked him to pinstripe his 1952 Ford Coupe.
In 1956 he established Clines Lines, and 18 years ago he founded Brush Rush, an organization where pinstripers come from around the world and network. Working for more than 50 years, Mike is a legend at pinstriping and a master of gold leaf. In 2007, he received the Von Dutch award and in 2008 he received a Tommy the Greek award.
He has been published in Auto Art, Auto Graphics, Signcraft, Signs of the Times, Rod & Custom, and Hot Rod magazines.
