    I really liked this cool 36 Nail Head Buick seen at the CHRR at FAMOSO a few years back.

  9. Some great stuff posted already and the day is only 2 hours old! Thought I'd post up some signs I've done over the years.The Flintstone Charger body I did the lettering and my good friend Bruce Cambriello did the cartoon characters.
    Photo#1 is the side of George Arning's carbon fiber Deuce roadster that was painted at Mark Kirby's shop in Dundee Michigan.
    #2 is a door for a 33-34 Ford farm truck.
    #3 through #9 are various signs done for clients;mostly on Lexan or Plexiglas.The Road King sign;all I did was the lettering;the background was already applied when I got it. 0Geo6.jpg 0KrauseFarms03.JPG 34ChevyCoupeSign 001.jpg 55ChevroletSign 001.jpg 1956PlymouthFurySign 001.jpg 1958PlymouthFurySign 001.jpg 1992MustangSign1.jpg 2003RoadKingSign 001.jpg 50313 039.jpg AuctionClock00.jpg AuctionClock99.jpg BackAlleyCycle1.jpg BobSteeles.jpg EyeCandySign1.jpg Mach1Sign1.jpg MustangSign1.jpg Signs2015 001.jpg Signs2015 002.jpg PaintCo1.jpg YeOlde5.JPG
    #10 & #11 are signs to indicate when the next art auction was to take place. Made for the Motor City Auto Art Mavens.
    #12 is a sign I painted on a section of picket fence for a local motorcycle shop.
    #13 is Bob Steele's funny car body painted in the early 1970's.
    #14 is a panel for the charity auction at the Autorama.
    #15 through #19 are more client signs.
    #20 is a sign I used to use at car shows.
    #21 is my old shop sign made from a cabinet door. I bought a bunch of these doors at a yard sale one day for a buck apiece.

    There is a thread on Corvettes and what would you do if you had one. Having driven in a 1954 white/red Corvette with a 6 cylinder, then 6 years later in a 1960 dual carb 283 4 speed version, it was like night and day. If one did not mind the cool factor of the 54 Corvette the 6 cylinder was ahead of anyone else at the time, so satisfaction was gotten from that drive and cruising around.

    But, the power of the 1960 dual quad 283 with a 4 speed was our introduction to the high power cars that could be had from the factory. It was a teenager’s dream car, not good for double dates, but good enough for power acceleration and curvy roads like going to Big Bear Lake or the local mountain resorts.

    If we had access to the early V8 motors and even a 3 speed stick, it would have been, I am sure, somewhat disastrous with all of “sporty” car shenanigans going on every time we got behind the wheel. One thing for sure was the cost of insurance for teens. A sporty car is one of the highest in the whole industry. That, in itself is a deterrent to owning a Corvette.


    The red 1956 Corvette in the upper drawing is what ours would have looked like back in 1957 if we had all of our dominoes in a row. A high powered 265 up to a 283 CI, dual quads, and possibly a rare 4 speed from our friend’s automotive contacts in Los Angeles.
    The stance would have been a slightly lowered, Cal Rake angle with 56 Buick Skylark Wire Wheels added for the custom touch. No hardtop as shown, as it becomes a daily driver weekend cruiser and sometimes racing in the sports car classes at Lion’s Dragstrip.

    But, as dreams and art go together, my brother always wanted to go to Bonneville and make a full speed throttle run for the top speed. In what car? Either in a lowered Altered Roadster or a sporty car. The sporty car being a 56 Corvette with an added stabilizing fin. (or a similar design 56 T-Bird)
    Of course, the tow/push car would be a 1954 Corvette Station Wagon with similar V8 power.

    Another in my series of black & white airbrushed canvas- 11"x14" 55' Chevy. Tentatively titled "STREET FIGHTER" but I am open to suggestions.
