Here ya go, nothing original here, so I threw in the bull horns to make it stand out.
That turned out nice, good proportions!
Also, the inadvertently chopped 59 Chev in the background looks cool too!
It is pretty amazing how you guys do this stuff. Thanks again.
Oh, great, thanks alot.
Now the price of bull horns is going to go through the roof!
Actually, looks kinda cool, in a cowboy-cadillac sort of way!
Very smooth and understated. A definite look-twice car.
Ya I really the this look on it. Looks tuff without going over board.
Love it! Thanks a lot! it looks Great!
Yeah man, Thanks a lot, its exactly how i pictured it haha. Think this is what he's going to go with or soemthing similar, when we get around to finishing up the bodywork.
here ya go
Sweet!!! Glad it helps, post some pic's when he gets it done.
"The Salt's a little sloppy this year..."
I m really sorry, I couldn t resist ...
I guess it was not as low as it could be!
Jesus! I took the origional picture on a rainy September day in Tillamook Oregon, you guys are amazing, thanks again!
Thats some nice work! Work the shadows a bit and I'd imagine a lot of people wouldn't even catch on that the background is photoshopped in.
Can someone add Corvette style rallys on my 57, bring it down with a slight rake?
Here's the truck.
Hope these wheel pictures help...
Here's a possibility.
Thats a sweet truck.
Gave me some inspiration for some artwork.
Just so happens I had a cartoon of a 57 that I decided to give a little LDO treatment.
What do ya think ?
I like! Forgive me, but I had to hack a ratfink into your fine artwork.
Sweet! Thanks fellas, truck looks great and the artwork is bad-a**...
Nice artwork MOguy, ...looks MO Bedda, ...& MOst bestus with WWs!
What to do with a '66 Nova...
I thought I'd go retro with a '55 Belair inspired look:

Forgiven. I dig it !
Actually everythings game here in the PS thread anyhow.
Figured I would add a few more things to complete the look.
Whoo! That's awesome. The tire smoke and flyin' gravel, the shredded roof, Ratfinks's shadow, the highlights on the glass...excellent work!
A few pages back, Zykotec posted a Chevy with -57 Ford trim. I loved the idea, but didn't really "get" the placement of it, so I tried my own version and added Buick portholes, a lowering, new wheels, a "pancaking" of the roof (no height removed from windows, just the steel above it) and a red-tinted rear window. I hope it's Hamb-friendly, otherwise it might work as inspiration on detail-level.
Can someone please shoot my car flat tan with a white top,scallops and just lower the front to match the reat thanks alot .
Alright so throwing around some more ideas and once again need your guys help (just wanted to let you know have been very helpful and extraordinarily awesome with your PS skills). So here is what I am thinking, I want see the coupe done in a two tone. What I had in mind was using this same copper color and also black. If you could, I would like to see it two ways. One with the black above the belt line and the other with it reversed. If you have any ideas for a third color to highlight the belt line throw it down(I'm thinking white). What I had in mind was the grill shell being black and then transition into the two tone at the hood. So if you have any artistic ideas to make this transition flow, it is a blank canvas. As far as the belt line I envisioned using the bottom one which flows into a radius on the rear quarters. Maybe throw some copper pinstripes on the wheels. Also if you could switch the inline out with a (black block) SBC with lake headers that would be appreciated. The last request would be to transform this thing into a 5 window as that is what I have. Once again thanks for everything thus far and Happy Easter!
Id just like to say again that this is one of the greatest sites and groups of people ever. The fact that you guys are willing to sacrifice your time and talent to help inspire us is so cool. You guys are very talented and generous. Thanks fellas.
You're welcome! I gotta admit, when someone uses my photoshop work as a reference for their project it brings big grins. Its nice to be able to help even in a small way. We actually have the easy part, its those of you who do the cutting/grinding/patching/chopping/welding/swearing/primering/painting/wiring part who do the real work.
