Gas Shortage

Gas Shortage, fonzi, arthur fonzarelli, the fonz

Some may or may not remember the gas shortages of the 1970s, but those who do will remember that and The Fonz.  I thought this was a cool play on that era.  Arthur Herbert Fonzarelli aka Fonzie, is one of the greatest TV characters of all time.  The sweet irony for me when making this piece is that he was a mechanic.  So what better backdrop for the icon than a gas station.  The gas station also has old school gas rationing signs that the government imposed during the same era as the Happy Days show was becoming a hit.  Fonzie and is motorcycle went perfect with this piece.  Sit on it Potsie!  Ayyyyyyyyyyyy!
