Picture #1
When my airbrush guy got ready to highlight the flames I told him that I wanted some skulls in there. He did good.
#2
A slow moving chevy boy.
#3
Somehow I messed up and duplicated #1. OOPS!!!
#4
Do you think that I should change my rear window sticker now that I am a chevy boy? I could put "Here Hemi, Hemi, Hemi"
#5
All the guys know the deal.

I bought an old Hwy Patrol Crown Vic and got the 351 W out of it. I had a drag race shop rebuild it for me. He ask "How much HP do you want" and I said "TO MUCH". Really, it is pushing about 325 hp. It has an automatic overdrive trany and a B&M ratchet shifter. I wanted to be able to drive it everyday if I wanted to. And I have until two weeks ago. Since it was out for the pictures today I drove it shopping for my wife. I got a lot of compliments. Sunday at church my asst. pastor told my wife that I needed to work on my humility. He has seen most of my toys and knows that I like to show off. I'm working on it. I'm trying to tone down. The Vette didn't help matters any. HB

Thats one fine looking model A, and I love the detailing in the flames, really adds to the car.

Thanks Gorichb and Pay, There are 6 or 7 skulls on each side. If I would have taken the pic from far enough away to see them all you would not have seen any of them. They blend so well that people will look at the flames for 3 or 4 minutes and then say Hey look at those skulls. Each one is burning back into the next one. This guy was so good at airbrushing. He has moved to Boise Id. and is doing tattos now. He wanted to paint my car sitting on a cliff with fire all around the bottom of the cliff. I really cound't see it so I said no. It would probably have been cool, but I never got it. He wanted to put it on the rumble seat lid. I'll see if I can load another Harley that he did for me. HB

I talked to him a few days ago and he said that he had his house for sale and would be moving to north central Tenn. He said that he would be coming to Jacksonville, N. C. about twice a year and would be glad to air brush for me again. We were good friends and I hated to see him go. Well, maybe I'll find something for him to brush. Maybe the Firefighter Road King.
