    I am looking for old monster/weirdo paintings by pinstriping artists such as Von Dutch, Dean Jeffries, Larry Watson and more! These were often painted on the dashboard of custom cars in the 1950s.... I think it's about time to bring these creations back, so post your images below so we can all soak em in!

    I'll start with some that I have saved on my mac:

    The Outcast by Von Dutch, painted on the Outcast dragster:

    Another Von Dutch painting..looks like a self portrait:

    The Yeakel Roadster with an upside down painting by Von Dutch:

    ...something Von Dutch did on the side of the Barris Woodie:

    Von Dutch paintings on the dashboard of the Buster Litton shoebox...would love to see better photos of this dash:

    My Jeffries book has only 4 pages on this subject....not many photos either unfortunately
     
  4. You are right page 26 - 29 has the specific pictures but check out page 22-23 he did some rad art work on his '47 Merc. I especially like the hands above the headlights!

    The two pics of the shirt is by Von Dutch circa 1958. Dutch, also doing it in style!

    I have always thought this looked like some type of crazy Afro-Cuban Jazz album cover. :)

    Every time I see this picture, and think of the story behind it, where Barris left Von Dutch in the shop over night and found this the next morning, I can't help but think Barris was probably really pissed! I would be. After all he was just Von Dutch back then, not VON DUTCH. :D

    Can someone watch High School Confidential and get a screen shot of the dash board and glove box lid with Von Dutch treatment? I recall it is a 49 Ford and it's the scene of selling marijuana. The hay mow is behind the glove box.
