Default My 29 Model A,

Here is the ol Model A now....







Now that you have seen what it looks like, I am planning on having some graphics and pin striping done to it....We aren't changing the body color, just adding the graphics and pin striping so I am not sure why the Artist TomCat shows the body in a different color.

I am very curious to hear your thoughts on the car and style, I am leaning toward the reverse 4 scallop scheme.

We are also trying to come up with a name for her. Note it has lots of Acme Beer items on the car already....

So far suggestions have been

The speakeasy special
Blind Pig
Ratskeeller or Rathskeller
Beer Slinger


Here are the renderings...






And some photoshop work by a guy over on KillBillit.

That is one brutal rod. It give me hughe "M U S T have something like that!" feeling right down my stomach.
I would vote for the top scallop scetch, where the upper scallop is the longest. In my opinion, it make it more evil that the others.
And I wouldn´t be able to find a cooler name myself than "Beer Slinger"

Realy nice picture when this rusty rod is on that clean drive.
The braking light is sooo spot on!!

Me and my graphic designer at work discussed the paintjob this morning. We booth liked the upper proposal, but are not sure we would go over the firewall with the graphics. Perhaps let it flow more rear and put the ACME Beer on the firewall-front part. However, we thought it would be interesting to mask the pattern you want and sandblast the outline. Not to shiny, but half-ways so to say, and then just give it some oil or wax for protection.
