I'm an artist who enjoys illustrating hot rods. More specifically, traditional, old school rods. You know, white walls, old paint, rust, padlocks on doors, Chevy rearends with flathead v8s. The kind of driveway engineering that made this hobby into the national obsession that it is today. What I would really like to draw, are the truly odd aspects of hot rod fabrication. For example; Dropping a car so low, that the dash must be frenched, in order to accommodate the shifter lever. Or using a three pulley system just to actuate the throttle. These are some of the things people are doing, and it blows me away every time I go to a show. One guy actually had a straight metal wire running through his windshield to the choke. That's how he used it. Iv'e wrenched on cars all my life, but Iv'e never done anything as outrageous as some of these folks. As an artist, I try to depict the illusion of "what if" engineering, and I can come up with some off the wall stuff, but what some of you are doing for real, just blows me away. Hats off to ya.
