no long winded comment, only WOW!!!!
Your choice of Hotrod/Custom Body is a cost effective one as T's make Cool rides and don't share the huge Dollar values of their more sought after Cousins...
Thanks @19Fordy I really enjoy it and if it gives ideas to others. Thats even better.
Just saw your avatar in another thread - I'll be following this for sure! Kuul concept with the closed fenders, might rip it off someday!
Here is another one. This is a sport coupe with roadster a pillars and coupe doors cut. Also added a body line on the bottom of the door and quarter panel, similar to a roadster. This is more of a design exercise, than a complete drawing.
Your exactly right. Luckily, this far south (New Orleans Metro area), these "original parts" don't go for much. Most of the time they can't give these parts away. Everybody is in to Mustangs and Camaro's. (Nothing wrong with that.) But, @beatnikontinental made a good point at the Bayou Roundup. He said: "something about hot rods done in a traditional way causes us to be creative". There is a reason you look at any hot rod from the late 30's to the late 60's. There timeless, creative and have so many cool details, and were lucky we can pick any time period and riff off of it.
I still don't understand why the Sport Coupes aren't exploited in Hardtop more as they are a 3 Window technically...I know your Sketch is an exercise but along with Specials they get axed into Coupesters or Re-roofed as a Std Coupe...
The 1/4 Window Pillar removal on the T looks really awesome...There is an Oddball Fully Skirted A that has a High level of Finish but missed the Style mark by a bit but it really had many admirable features as well...I'll see if I can find it...

Thanks for sharing that, that was a great read. This is an interesting build, more art-deco and elegant than "hot rod". Reminds me of American version of Delahaye.
Totally agree...man I searched over and over for ink on that and finally I found it right here in and old thread on the Hamb...
Did you see the Hotrod @Jimmy B posted in that thread which leans much more in a Hotrod direction...pretty stylish too...
The fronts turn with the Wheels wHere Rans fenders were fixed...with a very narrowed axle I suppose

@Sculptive Design Co. Just a link to an interesting thread often misunderstood, quite large but having an incredible array of let's say great things people did back then...it also has modern builds in inspired vintage themes...
Such as these last two posted Hotrod Hybrids I call them as they have elements of Custom and Hotrod together...

Thanks for posting up your artwork! Amazing stuff.
I look forward to your future submissions...(Friday Art Show)
Thanks Bobby, here is one I did on Friday. A 23-25T on a complete 28-29 A chassis.
I think there are good points to that linked thread you shared with me. One of which is when these original guys were creating these hot rods/paving the way. There were more of the un-homogenized type (style) cars than these more "homogenized". Not discounting the fact that these "homogenized" are great. Because they are. Maybe its the fact that they are so great is because at that time most cars were a type of gow-jobs instead of a hotrod. Ether way both points can be argued. I think if the car has great attention to detail and craftsmanship I can appreciate that.
For example. Wally Olson's T I think the first version is better than the second.

The second version was more of a cruiser than hot rod. I think Blackie said it best. Hot rods have black walls and cruisers have wide whites. Or was that from The Car That Ate My Brain! Movie said by Von Franco. I digress.
Different strokes for different folks.
@Sculptive Design Co. That T above reminds me of a recent inspired Hotrod build at link below...
Worked on another one today.

You have a great style @Sculptive Design Co. Thanks for sharing these...
WOW! Great work, thanks for sharing.
Nice work, thanks for sharing.
My son is an artist professor in Chicago . If I was still married to his Mother , the first thing I would do is punch her right in the mouth , cause I know his skill did not come from my loins !
Fantastic work. Some real talent there.
