Chris, I seem to recall that either Street Rodder or Drag Racing magazine did an article on the restoration of a Spaghetti Bender. If you want to I see if I can find it. Welcome aboard, Gary. The pics are great!
I don't have pictures, but I believe her.... My wife came home and told she saw the original (Barris) Batmobiile driving down the street. Grey haired guy with a cigar was driving it in Riverside, CA. Gotta love SoCal.
This morning was the annual dog skunking. I guess it takes then one year to forget. At least j have the supplies on hand. Still stinks. Got to work after a second shower and they still smelled it. Went home and scrubbed the dogs and myself with the de-stink mix - again. Went back to work only to have them call me Pepe Lepew. Fun day.
Wow. (Has that been said already?) Wow-zers! This is a great project. What a fun piece to look at. The tractor and farmer are excellent. The surfing pig is only equaled by the chicken with the strap on dorsal fin.
I don't have the talent to pull down the big awards at contests, but through trial and a good amount of error I can usually create the vision I have in my head. It helps me to draw it out. I am not a great artist either.
That is where you see the talent come in. I have a few friends who are professional automotive artists. If you have ever seen a true artist draw it is an amazing show. Every once in a while a professional artist get the urge to build a model. I can usually spot it. There was one doing upgraded Deals Wheels on another site. Very nice stuff.
