I loved after spending a week scouring fonts and trying to match Toms Decals for him then getting" Oh yeah, it isn't a font... it is off my tattoo. I didn't tell you?" lol. Great man with a wealth of knowledge that may never be held in one mind again.

When I was just a 17 yr old punk kid Tom helped me find a motor mount for my carrera. he never charged me a dime. I had no clue who he was or the legend that he is. but quickly learned. Although my dealing with him was breif he was good man. Thanks again Tommy. RIP.

Tom was one of the nicest guys you could ask for. I remember cracking triple digits in my daytona and trying to get him to get more out of it. He told me "you have a wife and kids 100mph is fast enough on the lake especially after driking all day". He really cared about people and refused to put me on the edge. Miss him RIP Tommy.

Tom Papp on the Wilder Bunch !!

This is the ol' Wilder Bunch wildercraft back when Tom worked out of wilders shop in pomona. Thats Tom Papp on the Left and then Tony Stone, Ross Wilder and then Dallas Dworak painted on the deck. Bad pic but good shit. You can see Tom's holding a Droop and Rick's handing him a doobie.
