All of the artists faired well last month and a good show of a tough subject.

Competition starts now and ends on the May 26th, voting will begin on the 26th leaving 5 days for voting as the poll will end afterwards by itself.

I thought for sure last month you'd be doing the "Vanishing Point Challenger" so I passed on that one, lol.

I had the idea to do "Gran Torino" from the movie but just didn't have an idea.

I know you have something cool up your sleve.

Well after Ecto1 one had already been entered, you had me second guessing every car I could think of. That's why the General Lee is unfinished along with several other movie cars. I got to the point of trying to get a movie car that would be old, but still very. recognizable

It would have been cool to see your rendition of the etoc-1,

I figured when you had the cuda, you mentioned challenger ( my own personal favorite car ) nice to know I owned a T/A chalenger and simply destroyed it by making it a hot rod and selling off all those really rare parts for nothing. Same went for my 69 ss/rs 396 Camaro, totally trashed it.

I cheated a little here, I roughed this image in a while back for a thread on another board and I also did not take the original photo. I slammed it, chopped it from stock in the front to 3-4 inches in the rear, I shaved it, skirted it, added lakes pipes and Cadillac dagmars. I also moved the portholes to create a lower look as well as shave the upper taillights.

If I could use the program better I would paint it too

congrats brickyardboy on last months contest! Great subject this month! I'm finally back for a while so I think I can get in the contest this month.

I did this 50' custom last summer so it is not my entry. My Dad wants me to do a 3/4 front view so that will be my entry when its done!

Good luck all

Great job, Neil! Man, I better get busy and draw something, or I'll miss this month! My plan is to render a '58 Olds.
