Artist's Description

WHEN I BOUGHT MY FORD EXPLORER SPORT, IT LOOKED JUST LIKE ANY NUMBER OF OTHER FORD EXPLORER SPORTS ON THE ROAD. BACK IN THE 1970’S, WHEN I WORKED AT MY DAD’S SERVICE STATION, I KNEW TWO DIFFERENT PEOPLE WITH TWO DIFFERENT CARS THAT BOTH HAD SHOTGUN DAMAGE TO THEM. I ASKED EACH ONE OF THEM THE SAME QUESTION, “WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR CAR THAT GOT IT SHOT”? BOTH OF THE DRIVERS HAD THE SAME ANSWER, “IT WAS MISTAKEN IDENTITY, BECAUSE THE CAR LOOKED LIKE SOMEONE ELSE’S”. RIGHT THEN AND THERE, I SWORE THAT I WOULD NEVER HAVE A CAR THAT LOOKED LIKE SOMEONE ELSES. WELL, UP UNTIL THE TIME I GOT THIS FORD EXPLORER SPORT, NONE OF MY OTHER VEHICLES EVER LOOKED ANTHING LIKE SOMEONE ELSES VEHICLE. THE ONLY ONE THAT EVER CAME CLOSE WAS THE 1965 CHEVY IMPALA SUPER SPORT AND EVEN IT HAD PAINT ON IT THAT MADE IT DIFFERENT, JUST NOT MUCH. SO, WHEN I GOT THIS FORD, WITHIN THE FIRST MONTHS I SAW 3 MORE JUST LIKE IT, SO I HAD TO START CHANGES RIGHT AWAY. WHEN I DROVE UP TO THE LIGHT AND THERE SAT THIS FIRE TRUCK, I THOUGHT, WHAT A GREAT HAPPENSTANCE, A “FIRE TRUCK” AND A HOOD WITH FLAMES ALL OVER IT. THE TWO WENT TOGETHER LIKE COOKIES AND MILK. I ALMOST YELLED AT THE FIRE TRUCK TO HAVE THEM PUT OUT THE FLAMES ON MY HOOD. NOT REALLY, BUT I DID THINK IT AT THE TIME, THAT CAME FROM MY SMART ASS, QUICK WITT ATTITUDE THAT I’VE HAD TO DEAL WITH MY ENTIRE LIFE. LOL THIS FIRE TRUCK IS STATIONED AT SUISUN CITY IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. WHILE WE WERE SITTING AT THE LIGHT ON HIGHWAY 12 AND JEPSON PARKWAY INTERSECTION, I GOT OUT MY KODAK EASYSHARE Z710 AUTOZOOM DIGITAL CAMERA AND TOOK A COUPLE OF QUICK SHOTS. THIS ONE WAS THE BEST, SO IT GOT SELECTED TO BE ON THE BUBBLE. I HAD ONE GUY THAT THOUGHT HE WAS BEING FUNNY ONE DAY, HE WAS FISHING IN AN AREA WHERE I WAS GOING. WHEN HE SAW MY HOOD, HE MADE THE COMMENT, “HEY, YOUR HOODS ON FIRE”, I TOLD HIM “I KNOW, THANK YOU”. I GUESS HE FIGURED I WOULD BE UPSET, BUT IF HE THINKS IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S ON FIRE, THEN THAT’S OK WITH ME, THAT WAS MY INTENSION. ALTHOUGH I USED SOMEWHAT OLD SCHOOL FLAMES, ONLY I DID IT IN A DIFFERENT MANNER THAN MOST FLAMERS WOULD HAVE DONE. I WANTED MINE TO BE DIFFERENT THAN EVERY ONE ELSES. THAT WAY, NOBODY COULD MISTAKE MY SUV FOR SOMEONE ELSES SUV AND HOPEFULLY IT WILL NEVER GET SHOT AT WITH A SHOTGUN.
