Peter Hischier of Modesto, California was a member of the Modesto Century Toppers car club. He became a member of the club in 1950. He was 14 years old, and one of the youngest kids in the club. When Gene Winfield returned from the service in 1951, Peter began to work at Windy's Custom Shop on 1309 Figaro Avenue. Working only on Saturdays, Peter helped Gene with sanding, welding, or getting lunch. Peter never collected pay while working for Gene, instead he traded his labor for Gene's shop to customize his first car, a 1950 Mercury Monterey. After about a year, Peter sold the Mercury to Gene, as he bought himself a 1950 Cadillac Convertible.
