Saluda NC, population 500, sits in the mountains of Western North Carolina. The inhabitants are about 25% folks from other areas who have a mountain home here, 25% artists, hippies, new agers and others attracted to the Blue Ridge mountains and streams, 25% born and bred here with hard-work ethics and modest homes and pickup trucks, 25% bikers, and 25% rednecks. Ops, that’s more than 100%. Well you get the picture. A lovely town with nice shops and good hamburgers and milk shakes.

Tour Car

The artwork for the 2010 Street Rodder Magazine Tour Car, as seen in (fittingly) Street Rodder Magazine.

We threw a bunch of pencil roughs around, playing with a lengthened T body on ’32 rails, and the builder threw in the idea to give tribute to the 1952 AMBR-winning T-pickup of Bud Crackbon, a Bay Area local, so we added a track nose, hood blister and mild rolled pan to get the look up-to-date.

You can see both the art and actual car’s progression in the magazine… Wanted to share it here as well. Thanks for checking it out!

As usual, pencil sketch refined, scanned, and completed in Illustrator.
