G'day listeners...Sketched (rapidly) this Polara in pencil last Sunday. Colorized, & added S/S paraphenalia..
I mentioned to a guy that I would try to sketch a '51 Ford for the show. Computer crapped out on me so I spent most of the day trying to figure it out... no dice... so, here is what is on my phone for now...

Sketch and painting " new for 57 "
A while back another HAMB(LiveActionMotorsports) member asked me if I could do a rendering of a project that he was thinking of doing that involved building a couple of work trucks for his business based on a Model 31 A pickup with a service style bed installed.

The side panels of model cars and flat surfaces were easier to draw than the curved panels. Kudos to the artists and car painters that get that great look every time. Here is the “Christmas Parade” themed hot rod(s).

Just found this in a tube while looking for other things. Libbys Diner was/is located near Burlington, Vermont and gives out place mats for you to doodle on. This was mine back in '95 when we stopped after looking at a college for my oldest daughter. Felt guilty just commenting, so I will share this. Til next week, Carp
