This is How it was Done – - – Canon G11 Compact Camera – Wide-Angle Lens 6mm – I shoot RAW – Orton – I use PhotoShod for layerism – I use Photomatix Pro to polish up me HDR ( saves hours) – and I use other stuff like reflectors, professional masseuse and a roll or bowl a ball penny a pitch ~:0)
This is What Happened – - – The Model A Coupe is second only to the Model A Roadster for hot rodding. That’s probably more to do with how plentiful the cars were when G.I.s started wrenching again after WWII. I’m not denying that the lines of the car are classic styling at its best. Just saying there were plenty of them around to be had cheaply ~:0)
Cheaply though is not how this bewdy of a model A coupe was restored. It was a complete frame off resto and no stone was left unpolished. Those elegant wire-wheels were restrung and trued at one of the best shops up in the Texas Hill Country. They scoured the planet for every piece of missing trim. They had every piece of brightwork rechromed. And the painting was done by a local paint artist up around Boerne.
The seats are matched leather hides from a Texas herd and even the Texas flag was sewn by olewhat’shername’s grandmother. This ride is truly a model A coupe bred in the hill country. It was built with craftsmanship and pride by folks who care about the work they do. The original four-banger under the hood was blue-printed so that it runs better than it did when it was new. It’s better than new. ~:0)
Still – I’d a rather hot rodded the model A coupe with a new frame made to stand up to the mild small block mill I’da put in her. That’s right! Big fat tires (tyres for U metrix lot) – modern headlamps – radical rake to the whole look. Boom Baby – Super Cool Hot Rod to take ole JuJu cruising on a Saturday night – Ha! No Really! Really I would ~:0) VivaChas!
