    Venuti and Lang, yes.  Per your earlier note, Tony, I did call up some great clips online.  Also try Stocholo (spelling?) Rosenberg guitar work in the hot jazz genre.  Cool, like HOT!

    On the front of that Plymouth, I wonder about a European influence, like an Aston Martin double ellipse with egg crate grille work.    The front slope of the hood might accept that more aerodynamic form.  I have no digital skills, just wild ideas.  In a good way, of course.  Of course.  Per Gary Larsen’s Far Side.

    Some subtle changes to a Ford Anglia. They really dropped the ball on some areas of this car. The wheel arches are all kinds of wrong and the windscreen sticks up at a really odd angle.

    Subtle…. very nice James.

    And very doable I think.

    My earliest car lightglobe moment was when I was in year 2. I was walking home from school and art the mechanics shed across the road from school was a Food Anglia drag car. To my child eyes it was an oddity then (1972). I remember poking the soft tyres saying to the guy that the rear tyres were flat. He told me they were supposed to be to get extra traction.  “COOOOOOL!!!!”

    So I’ve always had a thing for the humble Anglia.

    There were several chopped Anglia drag race cars in those days. Usually gas class. Nothing like today’s so-called ‘gasser’ fad builds for the street.

    In 1953 Hudson released the Jet, a new compact car. It only lasted two years. Hudson bet the farm on it and lost a bundle. Styling was upright and stodgy, though performance was pretty decent if you ordered the Hudson high compression engine. Hudson threw some more chrome on it for 1954, but to no avail.

    The good news is that they are cheap today. I found this one restored for $7000. A good start on a custom.

    This one was dropped and shaved. The B-pillar was narrowed to widen the window area, giving the look of a 4-door hardtop while retaining some of the sedan strength. The rear fenders were extended to surround the Continental kit, which many came with. Hooded the headlights, too.

    I resisted the urge to add too many accessories and let the cleaned up design speak for itself. I did two versions: one in the original dove grey, and a later repaint in tangerine.

    Been playing around with a nice Volvo PV side view photo. I have always liked these small scale ’41-48 Fords, and figured they would be perfect for our narrow Dutch roads and tiny garages.
    These sketches show a pie-cut sectioned body, chopped top, lengthened hood, and a few other small mods. The one with the skirts has a downsized wheel opening on the rear fender, and the one with out the skirts has the rear wheel opening raised a little to allow the white wall to show after lowering the body.

    Just some Digital Restyled Sketches.. perhaps one day…

    That Volvo looks really great.

    The pie-cut section is sneaky! Combined with the lengthened hood and chop it really improved the design. I like the skirted version especially.

    Aw, you noticed!  I love Italian wheels – Campagnolo and Cromodora.
