For an up-coming calendar .........
I'm diggin' the details on that deuce Bob.. nice mix & collage.
I went to Valley Rodder's 'Cruise On' last Saturday night, as one does down here. The street was packed- so much so, I sat in the shadows of the Church, where I got a rare clear view at this cherry '59.
Hello all from the new guy! The name's Sven, aka Senone, and I own and operate 4th gear kustom studio near Antwerp, Belgium, for the last 6 years (been at it for 8 by now). My schooling goes back to the good years of the sketchkult forum. Over the years I've seen a lot of very nice art on here, but since I just recently acquired my first American iron I didn't register before.
As an introduction I'm putting up my own brain bucket which I just recently revamped....
Good start every one - Bob, Spog etc. etc. Love it every week.
On the 26th of January here in Australia, we Aussies celebrate Australia Day. Every year on this day, I host a big BBQ for family & friends. It sort of ends up like an Australia day hotrod show...
But that's cool.
I bought this old 1960's tiki bar recently and this week, I thought I would customise it with a bit of a ' Hot Rod Tiki flavour' so my guests and I can hang around it all day and have somewhere to have a few beers and talk shit and stuff...mostly stuff.
Sss oh, I built a roof, made some pillars out of bamboo and stuff, and painted a few signs for it. I dig it, hope you do too. -H.R.D-
Excellent work, dudes!
I really dig the Tiki Bar, very cool sign painting hot-rod dude.
Thanks Dude- If work's slow on Sunday I'll imbibe @ Tiki Central.. Looks like it's Doris' shout (bark)?
Sideplatesix has a right-on old- style Holden hottie with triple carb hot six & classic detail touches (you can't see the killer Lakewood- style traction bars here). Very HAMB-y street machine. I was able to paint it last Sunday at the All- Holden Show at Wigley Reserve, Glenelg;
Great work guys. What the heck am I doing up this early?
HAMB on a Friday? Don't tell the Rabbi....
Great work from all, as always. Here's mine - custom Merc....
Did this today as well. gloss enamel on a set of Essex radiator louvers. My mate wants an aged look so when it tacks off enough, I'll hit it with turps and stress it out. -H.R.D-
Britt- neat garage scene. Cosmic Edsel made fine down- under gift.
What's the car (manufacturer)? I love the bumper, grill, valance and hood arrangement...very cool.
Thanks Beebing. It's a Panhard Dyna Z, made by Panhard & Levassor (french manufacturer) from 54 to 59.
The first ones had an all aluminium body.
Panhard's nickname was Panpan, because of the "music" of its two-cylinder boxer engine.

Great work everyone ...........
Very cool and I wish it was in my backyard!
Satin black powder coated tool cart I striped a while back for a friend.
gbritnell: Your detailed drawings must be a labor of love. Difficult to tell them apart from a photograph. Can't imagine the man-hours that go into one of these.......Exquisite!
Thanks, but most artists would be insulted if someone said "I could do that". Just something to keep in mind.
Welcome! Cool helmet
