  3. Thanx HRP! :cool: I like the way your first pic makes this sculpture look much bigger than it actually is in the second shot. Anybody that can make a convincing dust cloud out of bronze is OK in my book. And of course the patina looks right at home here. ;)

  5. What an incredible talent Mr. Wanlass is. I wonder how many passers-by actually get what it is they are looking at.:)

    Very KOOL ! I Can not afford that, my idea of yard art, conversation piece, for sure. Always admire the artist's skill/talent that make these.
     
  7. I thought the same thing Don,I don't know of it is on loan to the city or it is a permanent piece.

    We get it but how many city fathers would decide to purchase hot rod art,in this case a bronze displayed prominently in a city park,I know it wouldn't happen here in my town. HRP

    Wow, beautiful - sure hope there is security for it or, scrap salvage thieves might truck it out.

  11. Yeah, guess with Utah's long history with land speed racing these type of sculptures are appropriate. HRP

  13. I have made a few brass sculptures, you make it out of wax first, cast a negative mold then pour the molten metal into your mold. No biggie. That being said, that's one expensive statue if it's solid. ;)
     
  14. Stan is probably the most talented artist I have ever known, and one of the nicest guys you will ever meet.
    Here's a photo of his 32 roadster at the SLC Autorama a few years ago. DSCF0050.JPG
    Hell, anybody that has an original Bugatti in his living room has got to be cool, right?

  16. HRP, Had the privilege of going to STANS house a couple of years ago, toured his private studio. These things are everywhere, even in his yard, just laying around. H. 2013 road trip way home 057.jpg 2013 road trip way home 049.jpg 2013 road trip way home 049.jpg

    Hey guys, I'm bragging. I have two of Stanley's bronzes that I display in my house. Plus, he said I could have a S'deuced bronze (like on display) if I could carry it a couple hundred feet and put it in my roadster's trunk..... thx Stan :(

    I saw the real rod that the scripture was modeled from in the Richard Munz Collection recently.

  21. ..........................I think you meant sculpture but, we'll let you slide since we are here to "Preach the gospel of traditional hot rods and customs to greasers worldwide" after all.:D;)

    You are correct, because it is Sunday, I guess I was thinking of something else.

    Very nice, it would look faster with a full hood IMO. Bob

    I think the hood sides were deleted to show off the Ardun flathead, if I recall right.

    More info for you Wanlass fans (me too): I built the chassis that Stan kinda used as a model for the S'deuced bronze.(it's under one of his (other) roadsters. How about that ? I was really proud about hearing that. He is just a regular guy as any of you that have been to his house or met him know. ....well, except he IS the man !!
