I always liked the 33 Willys so I thought I'd clean and shine her up a bit...
You tell ‘em!
Looking good, thank you guys for the extras. I let this one go and this was the only decent pic I had. Gonna blow it up and get a frame today. Thanks again, Andy
I wish halibrands were that easy to come by!!
Yeah no kidding. There's a pare(2) of Halibrand slotted wheels listed on eBay in not the best of condition for ONLY $2500.00...I think I'll pass
Hello, I finally found the old picture my dad(@rusty rocket ) took of me with his '26 T modified. While we were talking about it he said it'd be cooler without the powerlines. I thought so too, so i was hoping one of y'all can make em disappear. Thank you!
While where're at it how a little image enhancement.......
Thanks man! That's really cool how you're able to do that to pictures. Me and my Dad really appreciate it
WOW! You made it sunnier, That's probably more what it looked like in person that day. Amazing work man, Thank you!
Cool little car also ^^^^
Hey! Can someone put some Halibrand sprints on this please? 15x6 front 15x8 rear. And have the tires tuck some in the rear. Thanks! I’m thinking about getting the American Rebel Mfg brand and just wanted to see how they look.
Can you put a mustache on this kid and make him taller? Lol
Can you please remove all the surroundings and make the firewall white, Put turnouts on the headers, and Firestone 7.50-16 Wide WW's on the rear and 5.50 -16 ww's on the front.
Here's one with a bit more detail
Thank you "Moose". Swade41 your almost there... Just a tad bit more practice and you will have it nailed. LOL....
Looks good Phil, but you forgot the turnouts.
OK, thinking about making a change to my '49....how about loosing the skirts, the whitewalls, and going with a wheel choice of your liking, maybe SaltFlats or??? Thanx in advance.
I'm not usually a white wall or skirt fan but your Caddie is absolutely perfect IMO. I wouldn't change a thing. But of course its your car so have at it.
Oh! Man! It's beautiful just the way it is. Love it!
Nice job on the digital makeover (as usual, Moose) but I can't say I would go that direction with that car. Who asked me, though?
Laughing my fucking ass off!!! That's PERFECT. I can't believe he's asking for even MORE...
I can picture this in my head, but I'd like to see a visual representation of my idea.
I'd like to see this Crosley lowered with a slight rake.
My idea for the body is a sheet metal enclosure on the back sort of like an oversized camper shell sitting on top of the bed rails leaving the bed sides/fenders stock. The sides would be slightly wider than the body (in real life 3-4 inches wider) and taller than the cab (in real life 5-6 inches taller). I'm on the fence about the top of the enclosure being the same shape as the roof line or just squared off.
I'm still contemplating on colors but I'm leaning towards colors in the range of olive drab green and green-grey colors, like these roadsters, with a lighter tan color inserts on the sides of the enclosure for a fictitious business logo logo.. Rims body color, tan, or black.
I don't own a Crosley pickup, but I've got a change to pick one up so I've been thinking of simple/tasteful ideas to make it different.
Thanx for the Photoshop work, and for all the nice comments. I think I'm gonna' leave it alone....
What you've described reminded me of a Morris Minor panel van. So I combined the two.
