    I really dig the very first flame jobs done in the late forties early fifty the ones that I call sclames sort of a mixture of a scallop and a flame. I did a search but didn't really find anything. So if ya have some pictures post them up.

    Funny, my 40th High School Reunion was tonight, but since I stayed home, I didn't see any ole school flames. It was probably for the best that I didn't go.

    Renault Dauphine built a lot of these between 1956 an 1967 all the same body. I think each one was made from one 6 pack of old beer cans. Very lite race car for sure I won a ton of races. All my race cars I painted flames on,one I even painted a Dragon on right side of hood that blow flames around the racer. But I had to stop doing that,my fellow racers kept trying to kill the d Dragon !!! I've always ended my race car flames in yellow=they show up way better under race track lighting that way,very few even take note of color at tip of flame,yet it make them show far better.

    The car made quite an impact on a young Dave Lape who ran a Flaming 22 the last several years of his career. 99 wins at Fonda Speedway.

    Sorry that was meant to be a beige or off white...color cycling when editing is sometimes a challenge. It certainly was never intended to be a negative.
