Re: Camp Never Rest Mafia Wagon! 1979 bluebird

I like 'em both, but like black betty 1.jpg best (sitting on the car), but I think the camp never rest logo takes away from both schemes...maybe put that on the hood, eyebrow, back, or top rear corner of the sides so it doesn't draw your (my) attention away from the cool paint schemes...just my $.02.

Black Betty #1 & lose the Never Rest graphic, too big, detracts from Betty or keep it and shrink it down ALOT (even waaay too big in view #2) Bam-a-lam?

Re: Camp Never Rest Mafia Wagon! 1979 bluebird

I vote #2, but really shrink the logo down or put it on the header and rear header of the bus. Betty needs to really stand out as THE focus of attention. She's a hottie in need of the attention......

Somehow I find it difficult to envision a hot rod with Dayton wheels and rims though...

Re: Camp Never Rest Mafia Wagon! 1979 bluebird

our plan is to get the CNR graphic on the back, and on the hood.. I told the designer that wouldnt work! Not so worried about the campground deal.... I think it will turn some heads for sure! we are excited to see how it turns out! I appreciate the feed back!

What? These are the original hot rod wheel! The famous Cragar SS is just a chromed gasser wheel. The original gasser wheels are like those on this straight-axled Falcon. You want the spokes painted gray and then give the rim some shiny aluminum paint or send them out to be chromed.

The bus is almost done with the fabrication.... take a look! Its been a long haul, but finally starting to take shape. We used rivets for the entire bus... welding just caused warpage etc....
