Volksrods :: Extend-O-Matic

Steve from Volksrods.com was one of Car-N-Art's first customers and a happy one at that. I'm happy to have him around as he allows me to shine on design. Often he'll give me the freedom to 'take the ball and run with it' which is what I did on this three color front, two color back t-shirt for the Extend-O-Matic.

Some years back a volksrodder discovered a way to increase the wheel base of a volkswagon (volksrod) pushing it out 8" beyond the normal wheel base, creating a more roadster look to the whole design. Over the years many were produced and if you are into the scene you may have increased your front end too. To commemorate this discovery I was given the opportunity to do up these designs with a semi-sexual innuendo on the reverse side of the t-shirt.

Everyone around here is happy with it as am I. So be looking forward to dawning one of these on your back soon. Blue shirts were the staple idea, but other colors could be in the works.

The Garage Journal :: Hot Rod Leather

A week or so back I got word that the Garage Journal ran a story on Hot Rod Leather who makes fabulous (and I don't use the word "fabulous" lightly) leather made goods. This one is on a tool roll that many old cars had as accessories when the inevitable happens.

I had the distinction of taking these photos of Eric's products up the Speed Barn. You'll have to check out Hot Rod Leather to see the rest.

Motorcycle shirts for Vintage Torque

Brand new stuff for Vintage Torque! I was commissioned to do a Bobber bike shirt for Vintage Torque which should be for sale at Torque Fest at the latest. It's a mid sixties Triumph bike. Though bikes aren't my strong point or true love, I could see myself on this one (or in the shirt anyway!)
