At some point I will start a new thread that gives a 'tour' of the "American Pride" Camaro.
First off: this Camaro has been made possible by Mountain Muscle Cars and Mickey Harris -- who painted every scene by freehand -- there were no 'sketches' on the car, rather, he did every picture using an airbrush and either referenced photographs or created the scene from his mind's eye........
-- it is truly a stunning work of art and no photographs can possibly do the artwork justice........
The "Story" of America starts at the rear most section of the rear quarter-panel....with George Washington crossing the delaware....and progresses thru the War of 1812, the Civil War - -World War One and Two - -the Korean War, Vietnam, and of course the gulf/mideast war.
Each 'picture' has incredible detail and tells a story by just looking at those details.......
.....the ones that struck me most:
>A soldier returning home - in the distance you see his house and a little girl running to meet him.....
>Arlington National Cemetery (on the decklid) -- where a soldier who has just been killed is being greeted by the 'ghosts' of so many others who went before him......
>A representation of the U.S. Constitution (We the People..) with an eagle looking right at you.......
I thank Greg Fodness for keeping me up-to-date -- from the time we shipped a new SS/RS to them in Tennessee - until he met everyone yesterday in Ohio - and gave the crowd a 'walk-around' -- explaining the scenes and how the car was painted and finished.....
I'm hopeful that each of you will have an opportunity to see this magnificent work of art in the next year.
I'll post a list of autoshows where it will appear in the near future......
