Cropped Fall Splendor and the Rumbling A-V8
I run the same Plate Frame, it was a choice I made but thought it new-ish so I taped off and radiused the sharp edges off the light overhang and brushed it only...it works with the aviation details...just...
I always think this Hotrod has a postwar vibe in its journey to 63...
Click on the Thumbnail for the Full Fall Experience...what a surreal moment that was...
and a fitting plate caption...being a bit of several brands...
Happy Friday All...
Art is where it's At Eh!!
The Visual Feast of Autumn is underway...
Yeah, it's art.....
It's called "how to dance on the starting line"
Our old hot rod history goes back to our first hot rod build for the daily street driving and racing at Lion’s Dragstrip. It went as far as buying a Model A coupe and getting the 4 banger running. That way, my brother said that we would sell the 4 banger motor and could say it was a running motor. Better sales ploy and it also gave us a few weeks of driving it around our neighborhood.
We have always liked Model A coupes, sedans, sedan deliveries and RPU trucks. So, I have gathered a lot of photos and have drawn various Model A hot rods. This one was from a Model A sedan folder that just hit home. The Model A sedan of Reath Automotive at Lion’s Dragstrip was our favorite. If anyone ever heard the Altered Sedan run, then you would have been impressed in 1959.
But, for some reason, other models have also made an impression. Terry Frost’s radical Model A sedan, Jack Chrisman’s early Model A full fendered sedan and of course, later on in our photographic era, Lee Bright’s Model A Sedan Delivery, to mention a few.
So, back then, I was looking for a sedan that looked like the Reath Automotive drag race sedan to a full fender version with the same stylish chopped look. I found it in the old Roy Berger’s Orange Model A sedan. I tried many times to draw it, but each time was difficult to get things right. So, it has been in a folder for years.
Now a revitalized effort brought the drawing back to life. The color Naples Orange was difficult to get right, so it may not be the exact color. But, at least, it is Orange for the month of October’s Halloween Theme, Friday Art drawings.
Can't remember if I posted this before. Mo
