Thanks Mr.Dave... ''If'' mine would turn out just as nice,I would be very happy..

It will get finished for sure... Not sure when yet, But it will.. I would give anything just to fly over to see that car in person.. That would be a dream come true for me... I hope someone from here buy's it..That way I know I will get to see it.. That car is really cool.. I would have some things a little different. But still like it a lot...

I sent a few pictures of mine to a few big names that I really did looked up too.. And didn't even get the time of day from them.. I guess it will changed the way I see them now... But it's all good...

C-cab

Cubic bucks, or lots of talent (which Randy has - in spades!) and the time to do it

In my case, having none of the above, things take a LOT longer and don't come out anywhere as nice

I Guess I have enough talent to pull it off,, It's the money that is always the problem..... You can have ''all'' the talent in the world, If the money isn't there,, Then we have a problem..

Thanks for the kind words Mr.Russ..

So far so good here where I am.. I just take it one day at a time.. I do know it's about time to get back on this C-cab... I might just have to cover the Coupe for a little while.. I see the reserve is still locked in on the pizza Wagon.. Can't wait to see what will happen in the end... Really make's me sad to see that car being sold.. But it may be time for a new one to come out of hiding..

I think I might just go blow the dust off of mine...

Here is some "food for thought". Certain colors, or kinds of colors, will give the car a personality. You can choose what you want that to be.

Excitement colors... generally "hot colors" like red, orange, yellow, and sometimes bright colors of other shades.

Value colors... black, gold, dark shades of almost any color, flakes and metallics.

Exotic... aquas, violets, purples, pink-orange "coral" colors and such. Colors you might see in sunsets, flowers, tropical fish, etc.

Sinister or mean... black, red, dark colors all have some degree of this.

"Dreamy"... blues aquas, and other "cool" soft shades.

I would definitely try to incorporate some of the things mentioned, like the popular paints and styles of that '60s-'70s... flake, candy, webbing, lace, psychodelic art, etc. That would give the car a classic look to compliment all of the design and fab you put into it.

I think one of the worst thing a builder can do it to combine different eras, and trends. It looks like the car can't decide what it wants to be. :-)

Now all you have to do is decide the personality you want, and use those colors as part of the paint scheme.

I agree with everything you pointed out...And never looked at color's that way...The paint scheme will be harder to me then building it..

Well the Pizza Wagon Didn't sell today...I sent them a email about their car.. Didn't hear back yet... I'm not really sure what the reserve was, But it hit a high of $65,101.00 today.... WAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY more money then I have..But I think it should be worth way more then that...Again one of my favorite car's ever...Just wish I was standing on side of it... Man !!! I would spend a day looking that car over... I would even have to bring my Jack with me... I talked to someone that has seen it. And said it's really small.. I don't know... But when Mine is done,It would be a great picture side by side..
