    I really like that T-bird. I think it is actually better proportioned than that model stock T-bird
    Here's a new custom cover.

    FullSizeRender.jpg FullSizeRender 2.jpg I'm a big fan of custom pick ups Geoff. I hadn't ever seen a T-bird pick up before. Here are a couple of photos I could quickly find of my custom 46 from a few years back. I never did finish that car, I sold it to buy my coupe.

    Tony wants Mark at the trim shop,( where Tony works one day a week), to get a delivery for the business.
    Here is my contribution to Tony's cause.

    Well Wardog, your ol ute was no T-bird, but from those images I can see it had a style all of it's own. Looks like when you drove it was like you had stolen it.
    Here's a quick cover featuring that classic Crankster ride.

    Whoa mate, I didn't expect that. I gave that thing a hard time, It had a real healthy Cleveland. When you view a high quality version of the driving photo the rear wheel is airborne.

  15. That's a good looking ute wardog. Do you know if it's changed since you sold it? There's a tradie of some sort (Possibly a builder) here in town that drives a '37 chev ute to work everyday. Lately he's been working just around the corner from me and I've seen the ute every morning on the way to work, it's kind of rough and ready and not really built how I would do it if I had it (commodore drivetrain, brakes, wheels etc) but every time I see it I start daydreaming about how it could be done.

    Thanks Tommy. Fuzzybear I have actually spotted it for sale since and it looks like all the seller has done is jack the price up.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I thought that cover may generate some action in here.
    By the way, that phantom T-bird ranchero was not - a photo-chop by me. I believe it is an actual car in the US.
    Anyhow here's a new cover I just did, that has some significance for me!

    Thanks for that little bit of history Rodney. That really is a great image in front of the Narrandera sign.

    I picked up from Harvey Norman yesterday, 10 posters and 5 more A4 picture books that contain the 2nd 300 covers I have done. You reckon these look good on the computer monitor, you should see them in print.
    I just completed another cover and I think this is right up there with my favorites.

    I have used this image before, but I have played with it a fair bit for this cover.

  28. I really like the old pictures of guys/girls, teams, clubs etc all working on their hot rods together. The architecture in that last one is pretty cool too.

    I am with you there FB, having people in the images on the covers really adds another dynamic and dimension to them.
    Having said that I will indulge myself with this cover. Tony will be pleased I finally got the roadster out and gave it a good clean.

    Everyone loves the 15 OZ coupe! Is that Bails' roadster when it was still in the states?
