When Art and Plastic collide

Building box art models has been fun and I have a lot to build yet. For some reason I seem to draw more inspiration from artwork than I do from photos of real vehicles. Lyle Willits has also been bitten by the bug, at least awhile ago since these are new photos of an old build of his. He built his '41 Chevy pickup to look like a Jairus Watson piece. I really like the truck even if he had never shown the artwork with it. On TRaK I have a build going for modeling artwork in plastic. I have a feeling it's going to bring some really neat builds out!

'40 Ford done right!

John Goschke built this beauty. The sharp lines in the scallops (which are painted on) , to the detailed engine compartment make this one stick out from the rest!

Vintage kit to reissue

Pssst..reissue this kit , it's gonna sell trust that! Red version I had and sold ,it's an original build. Blue one is an in progress that I will finish eventually. EDIT: I was not thinking clearly.....the car was ruined to make a dirt track racer. BIG MISTAKE! Kinda like the ruined '66 Buick Skylark!

392 Hemi w/open headers

It doesn't matter who you are, if you like hot rods this video sounds like heaven!

Some magazines I would love to have

Found these images on eBay or someone emailed them to me. I would like to obtain these some time.

Rod & Custom still one of the best

Some other vintage issues I have or have sold.

Vintage Hot Rod Magazines

Here are some I own or have sold. The cover usually has a lot to say without even opening it to see inside.

Picture without words

Ken Rollins '34 Ford Pickup

This is somewhat dry for entertainment, but still really cool to hear some things Ken says and the truck is beautiful!

This is on the bench right now. I am going to have to do some modifying to get the hood/grille to work.....this is what happens when you don't play the fitting test game enough. ahhhh well!
