just my car next to and old upolstery shop
My first rod, a chopped 37 tudor humpback sedan, 70 LT-1, 'glide, dropped tube, discs and big n littles.
Sold it to fund growing up and having a life - missed it ever since.
Mine is a cast aluminum toy truck that my Dad got in 1934 for his third birthday.
^ need I say more?
Sometimes it's best to let the Wookie win.....
I built it, I like it, and that's the only 'splainin I need to do.
I have changed mine recently. It is a picture of my late wife, June of last year at her 65th birthday party amongst all her friends. We knew then it was to be her last. Hug your wife and loved ones and tell them you love them. Cancer took mine too early.
Mine is a 1952 Mack A54 that I saved from the scrap yard. It had a pressure digger on the back and was used by an electrical contractor out of Dallas to dig holes for traffic poles. I have a 10 year old son who is showing some interest in helping me get this old girl running again. Our plan is to clean her up real good, paint it the town colors and use it in local parades...................
Then, sell it and get me a cruiser!!
I just stood up on my work bench and snapped a pics of my two ol heaps, my 26 T, and my 32-5w body, In my little two car garage.

Stu, I'm truly sorry for your loss.
My Chevy after being brought back to life. Born in la la land in 1935 with a new shiny coat of holly wood tan. Used and abused for many years, then abandoned in a desert to die,which it did. Then with a wave of a magic wand by the old car fairy , lot's of money and work, it was reborn to a life of luxury .
My avatar if of my great-great-great grandfather.
I've been an Artist most of my life. I had my first professional gig at around 12 years old. My subject matter was normally the "serious stuff" but after surviving the Big C and upon arriving home after attending my 13 year old grandsons funeral I spent that night in the ER where I had a pacemaker implanted since my heart had stopped 3 different times that night. That being said, I resolved to reassess what was important or not important in my life. My decision was to be happy and enjoy life and not sweat the small things. Thus I paint and draw what I want and when I want including my "Lighten Up" series of a family of robots and of polar bears that wear custom wristwatches.
Have a great day and Peace,
Thanks man, Ditto on your signature.
Your stuff rocks! Life throws us curves, I know exactly what you're talking about. It's too short to deal with chickenshit all the time... Kudos to you.
Mine, from my racing days - The day we experimented with running without wheelie bars -FAIL
I bought a Jeep with a motor that wouldn't turn over. Luckily I worked a low price because here's what I found when I pulled the head.
Me, because I still have no pictures of my car that is still sitting in storage...
