classic custom ads (volume 4)

Due to the positive feedback I received for my customized vintage car ads I decided to do another two ads. This time I opted for an elegant late 40s Lincoln convertible. Apart from the obvious lowering, the windshield was chopped a few inches, ornaments and door handles were removed and the grill was modified for that slick traditional custom look. No wonder it gets attention wherever it goes, even from the girls around the pool.

And did you know that the 1949 Ford was available as a factory leadsled, with a lowered suspension, nosed, decked and a different roofline? Well, here you go...

rockabilly bombardment, austria

A few weeks ago, hepcats and rockabellas from all over Europe met at the 5th annual Rockabilly Bombardment in the little austrian town called Hohenems. While the party got started on friday night, a carshow was held during saturday afternoon. "Klein aber fein" as they say in Austria, so check out the photos I took. Thanks to the Bombardeers Old School Club for a great weekend!


1929 roadster

The Cheaters from Geneva aren't famous for being a lazy bunch. Hell no, as one of their members, Peter, is just about to finish his bitchin' 1929 model A roadster. With a stout 304 cu.in. flatty, 1939 brakes and rims, a great stance and a flawless paintjob on top of that it's one of Switzerland's nicest hot rods. At least in my humble opinion. But check it out for yourself, on their blog or even on youtube.


us cars @ burger king lupfig

That was another busy weekend. Right the day after the Skates, Monsters, Skulls & One Shot at Custom Parts & Wear, we headed to the last carshow of this summer/fall. It took place at the Burger King in Lupfig, famous for the monthly King Cruiser Nights. Click here for some pics I took or discover my flickr photo gallery.
