The Concept

The gravity of what I am about to do is, and has been foremost on my mind. With a production run of just 387 cars, I get to work on something that is more rare, than say, a yenko camaro...and certainly better looking...hahahaha.

Nevertheless, the point is, Im only really gonna get one shot at this, and it has to be right. I dont want to short change this thing, or shortcut it, like I see so many other people do these days..(jawa Sr. , s.h.o.k, ...et al, insert your names here). This isnt to say that I havent short cutted shit in the past, oh no, just the oposite...the reason Im really really concerned about NOT doing this is BECAUSE i have had such a propensity for it before. Hence, the over riding theme to this thing, above all else is to NOT RUSH anything. Now im not kidding myself here, Im not like, overnight going to start turning out Steve Sellers type work, (fuckin bastard) But more than that, before I start any serious work reshaping anything, I have to have a clear roadmap of where Im going. There is only one way (in my mind) to do this. And, thats to have a concept to work from.

Enter DIABLO. After countless discussions, (like 3 if i remember correctly) My brother sat down and hammered out the artwork you see here, and in fact its one of these pieces that I use for the very header of this blog.

Not much is done here, but then again, this is a goddamn zephyr, so not much needs to be done.

Mild chop, lowering, headlight, and taillight treatments. A little bit of work on the lower portions of the fenders, and thats about it. The only thing I will be doing that we dont see in these drawings is that I am going to install a split light for the back window out of a 36 FoMoCo product. At this time there is still some debate as to whether I am shitcanning the current quarter windows for a smaller 39 chry. units, or not. Well, time will tell on that one. For now, trip out as I did at Diablos BAD ASS artwork. And if you get a chance visit him online-
