After taking the shots, I texted Sherrie a pic. Pardon the pun, but this is right up her alley, in more ways than one. I shot this by accident.

The Red Rocket Retires

Sherrie called her Bessie, & she was the sweetest red Tiburon, ever!

Betsy #1

Others called her Cherry Bomb & Ruby Red, but when it was time for Sherrie & I to go out muralling, she was the “Red Rocket”.

Bessie #6

Bessie saw more street art & murals in a few years than most humans see in a lifetime.

Bessie #4

One of her tires took a massive nail for us on an early mural hunt.

Artist(s): Rodrigo Pradel, Brian Gasenzer (all unsigned)

Sherrie often stole pics of me at work in the Rocket’s rear view mirror.
