Wow, Rita was looking smoking HOT there, wasn’t she!!!
B - Conceptually, this is my favorite 1932 Ford from your bench. I’d like to have a full size version just like it. I just love the mix of a hot flathead with a set of bitchin vintage mags on skinny bias ply tires. Stance and proportions are right-on. I also really like the finish you achieved on the “upholstery”.

Thanks, Dennis. Every era in hot rodding has its ideal, the sum of trends of preceding years. I was trying to capture the look that was spawned by the Traditional revival that began at the very end of the last century (weird to think of it that way...) as a reaction to the billet movement. Someday we'll distill what was great about that movement out into another contemporary movement, but for now we have influencers like the Brizios, Pat Ganahl, and many of the authors of the books referred to in Skip's thread on our reading references. With it's increasing influence much of this has to do with how the cars chosen to be featured in TRJ evolved. It's been interesting, too, to see how poorly, IMHO, the editorial staff at Hot Rod, et al, adjusted to this change.
I never liked the colors and forms at the height of the billet thing, but I did dig some of the early cars in that movement (thanks to Coddington and Foose and later Bobby Alloway and Troy Trepanier) and also the efforts during the Tech Rod struggles. And of course I have always thought the the Ohio Look that Barry Lobeck popularized was a fitting bridge between the height of the 60's SoCal look (the McMullen roadster and the Doyle Gammel coupe) and where we are today.
This is a good spot to drop a quick note or ask for help. If you are in a bad mood, this isn't the right spot to drop feelings. Thanks for understanding!
