I like the top one too! It fits the name and sets the theme.
The top one I like also. The lighter blue does not pull away from the name like the dark blue does. I would move rose up on the door between American and Women.

"Rita's Rambling Riveter"
Tell me about the motor you pulled out.
Flathead 6. Fresh ring job, new bearings. New valves and valve job. Aluminum dual carb head. Petronics ignition. Less than 1 mile on engine. Not even broken in yet. Dual stick, electric overdrive transmission...w
Thats crazy. Do you still have it?
Yes, I was kinda holding on to it for a street rod maybe. Don't know. My plans don't work out very often.
Ha ha, I hear that. I had a 61 Rambler 2 door wagon I wanted to build a sleeper car out of but it never happened.
The swoopy paint lines and the chrome-look lettering look awfully new for 1967. Just my cheap 2 cents. I know it'll be a nice build....just sayin'. Love the Barracuda!
This is funny I just sent them a message saying the exact same thing, great minds think alike LOL.
The chrome paint look was just something the artist put on it just to be putting it on. I agree that the chrome look isn't period correct and I don't like it anyway. Chrome look is and was never an option. The colors and Rosie will stay! The scheme is the question. There are no real body lines to follow, the sides are smooth, except for the rocker panels. The whole car is a curve. Maybe that's why nobody gassered them, the paint lines kept curving!
Move Rosie to the fender like nose art.
Agreed on the colors and Rosie, Might be right on the round body being hard to follow. My willys was round and it looked OK with the panel paint style.
Thanks Quain, might be second race before paint anyway. We're busting butt as it is right now. Any word on testing anywhere?
We're looking at that too. Rita has final say. She reminds me daily that it's her car and she's the driver!
What about a panel layout like this?
