Edsel Challenge

I received a challenge. I had someone from Facebook challenge me to do something for Halloween with an Edsel. Using photoshop, I created this. Old house in the back with it's jackolantern lights and the old Edsel sitting in front of it.

World War 1 Flying Ace

Inspiration comes from many places. So, Halloween night we watched "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" At the scene where the world war 1 flying ace was sneaking around and flying his Sopwith Camel. So, I created this in photoshop. Snoopy (The world war 1 Flying Ace) looking for the red baron in his sopwith camel.

1958 Plymouth

I'm a collector of diecast cars. This is a 1:18 scale 58 Plymouth Belvedere I have. Using photoshop, i decided to take the photo I took of it and make it as real looking as I could. So, I tightened up the seams. Added the parking lights above the headlights and turned them on. Added a Idaho 58 License plate and altered the headlights to look more realistic.

49 Ford Custom

My version of a 49 Ford. I found this old factory photo of a 49 Ford coupe online. I loved the color in this shot. But, I hated the proportions of the coupe. So, using photoshop, I eliminated the girl in the passenger seat. Then eliminated the top and built my own top modeled after the 51 Ford top. Then added fender skirts, and the chrome spoked wheels.

71 Monterey

Another car I drove in High School. This was mom and dad's old car. Using photoshop, I added custom wheels just to see what it would have looked like.

65 Mercury Parklane Breezeway

I love photoshop!

This is a car I owned in Highschool. Using photoshop, I tried to create what i'd have liked to have done to her if I'd  kept her. Custom wheels, new paint etc.

72 Mercury Monterey Custom

I love to imagine what certain cars would look like if they'd been designed differently. So, I found this image online of a 72 Mercury Monterey. I never liked the looks of the 72s big egg crate grill work. So, I decided to see what it would look like if they'd kept the holes smaller, tightened up the grill so it looked a litte more like the 71. It could have made the grill sturdier. I also added the custom wheels and different background. 

39 Plymouth

I found this image online. It's a 1939 Plymouth. Using photoshop, I took out the guy, and added more of the passenger side and background.

2015 Looked pretty un eventful. I am still here, just not making much time for anything until now. I'm hoping I'll be able to make 2016 better!

I found this image online. A guy standing next to a 49 Buick Roadmaster coupe. It's on a used car lot somewhere. Using photoshop, I eliminated the man, then made the Buick a convertible. Then decided to see what it would look like with a couple of different cars in the shot. Like they'd set up a camera and shot multiple vehicles for sale. I think the Cadillac turned out the best.
