Ya mean the hemi lost? Nice job, I like it. I've been trying to put together an adult/kid pine wod derby race at our local Moose Lodge, lack of time right now prevents me from doing so. If it is Ok with you, could I use that pic for a flyer? I am shooting to git er dun this winter. Dan

For this is how I base my opinion . I enjoy every ones postings on this site. And I believe this site is healthy . People I meet on the road enjoy the Hot Rodders site. I get feed back. But yes in my opinion there is a big difference between Computer art and Given art. A good detailed hand drawen piece at the size of 9 by 14 can take up to 20 hours.

Johnny... My hat is off to you.... I love seeing EVERYONE'S work here and wish I could get into the Computer part of this art,,, I am a Artist by pencils and lean more to the free hand,,, Like I said I like them all and hope no one takes this the wrong way,,,

I posted in One of these Contest once.. Free hand and felt it was a waste of time against computer drawings,,, It's two to different class's of art,, I fell we would do better on this forum if we had two different contest,,, Sorry but that how I see this getting any better... I been drawing my whole life and I won't even try going against computer drawing's,,, They are well done and I don't take or have anything against anyone that could do it,, He** I want to get it a try too,, But wouldn't even know where to start,, Give me a pencil and some time not bilding cars and I enjoy doing it...I just have a hard time finding time because I don't sit still very long,,

Again I didn't want to put anyone's work down,, Keep up the great work EVERYONE,,, But I do feel it would make a big difference to have two contest..Just my two cents..

I used to do the paper and pencil thing, but I was never very good at it.
Hats off to those who are
It was all I had when I was in school, but now it's more of a way to preserve an idea until I find the time to do something with it.
The computer works better for me because it gives me something I can see (I have never been able to visualize anything), and it gives me a uniform sense of scale I wouldn't have free hand.

That being said, this thread has me wondering whatever happened to the notebooks I had filled with drawings back in the 70's and 80's
Some of my drawings were wild Roth and Cushenberry influenced creations like a chopped and shortened '59 El Camino with gull wing doors, a front end patterned after Dave Crook's '58 Pontiac, and rear quarters made from '63 Chevy and '62 Pontiac panels with '58 Chevy tail lights; a chopped and sectioned '55 Chevy with Studebaker fins; and a finned '70 Camaro with '53 Buick headlights, a wild custom grill, and two sets of '54 Mercury tail lights turned sideways and recessed behind a Plexiglas panel. Then there was a flamed black Cobra with '56 Olds headlight rims and a 30's roadster with long streamlined fenders.

Also about that time, came and Olds, Buick, and Cadillac versions of the First Generation F-body. The Buick version was probably the best, with all the best pieces from the late-60's Rivieras scaled down to fit a Camaro body with long sail panels to give it a fastback profile. I remember when the Dodge Omni first came out in '79, and I did my own version with quad headlights from a Monza and a roof-line patterned after a Porsche 928 ... You can imagine my shock when the Chrysler Laser, which looked almost just like it, came out five years later
