My name is Buddy Miller from Asbury Park NJ. I am an automotive painter by day, but nights and weekends I have a little business building and painting motorcycles and other junk. 

I first heard about Babes Ride Out from a friend who suggested we dress in drag and sneak in! Well we never were able to get out there, but fast forward a couple years and now some of my work will at least be there.  

Since this is the east coast version of BRO, I decided to go with sort of an early 90's Jersey Shore boardwalk theme for the raffle tank I was asked to paint. I remember my mum got this badass license plate airbrushed for her Firebird at the boardwalk. I was so impressed at how the kid (at the time i was just a really little kid) painted it. Using just a couple of homemade airbrush shields and a few colors.  It was a silhouette of a unicorn and it said "Bitchin'" with a little twinkly 4 point star. The side of the tank has paint splats/ blobs. That was everywhere at that time, clothes, cars, signs.  

So yeah, I can only hope this tank makes some lucky young lady happy as pie. Can't wait to see it rolling down the highway!
