Yesterday I painted a demolition derby car with the help of my friend Scott(Armstrong and Getty Show on AM650) It was an absolute blast to decorate a car with spray paint. The quality really didn't matter, as the car will be completely destroyed within seconds of the start of the race. So there was no pressure at all. Just a lot of paint and masking tape. I'll post photos this evening, and go into more detail of the project. Special thanks to Bob our host, Jack Armstrong(Armstrong and Getty) who will be driving the car, and obviously Scott.

Here is the design for my son's guitar. I've been pretty busy with it, and should have the color applied in the next few days, if I can find the time. The process has been a lot of fun. I've built my own paint booth in the garage- in hopes of eliminating dust. Anyway, I've done the prep work- including sanding, applying filler, sanding, priming, sanding. Did I mention sanding? I just laid the base coat, and yup. I'll be sanding that as well. It's a lot of work- but should be nice when its done. I'll post progression photos when I can.

This is an illy done for Geno over at OSR. It's in the next issue, which is currently in the mail. I can't wait. This version is a little different from what's in the mag. The one on your local news stand has an added plug for Koolhouse Publishing that was added at the last minute. Check out the book when it's out, and you'll see what I mean.
As for this one; it was done with ink, colored pencil, and prisma color markers. Can you find the water spicket, and garden hose?

I have an infinite love for first generation camaros. Unfortunately, this is usually what most of mine really look like. We always see the ones in mags, and shows, but what about the rest of them. You know what I'm talking about. It's that thing under the tarp next to the dusty Exercycle. That monolith that you often talk about, but ends up being covering with card board boxes and old throw rugs. This is what most of us gear heads see more often then not; a half completed "dream machine." I call it that because, for most of the car's initial years with a new owner, they look like beautiful show pieces in our minds, but look like this in the garage. The imagination is a wonderful thing, isn't it.
