1937 Jesus Christ Hobo Nickel in Honor of Good Friday - True Liberty in Christ!

1940's Christian License Plate Topper

Beautiful 1954 Chevy Suburban

I found this one on pinterist and its quite amazing.  I love the color scheme as well!

Resin Built 1950 Canopy Express 1/25 Scale Model Kit

Above is an amazing 1950 Chevy Canopy Express resin / plastic 1/25 scale model kit built by Ismael Villarruel.  This one was built with a lot of detail and handmade parts. This kit started out as a resin panel and much custom work was added, from side openings to rear door, custom made rear wood floor, middle center panel with window, split seats, rear inner fender wells, hinged opening doors, and rear opening hatch door with chains. Custom scratch built rear stop light that swings outward when door is open and swings back down when closed like the real ones was also made. The side covers roll up and down to reveal fruit. All fruit was hand painted and custom fruit tables were made from wood. Interior used extra bench seats to make splits seats with custom rear back seat panels.  There is an opening and closing glove box, scratch made Fulton traffic view finder, spotlights, sticky fuzzy roof inner header panel, and gauges are inserted deeper with clear plastic for a realistic look. The engine is a custom made 235 and the compartment houses a federal chrome made siren, dist wires, fuel & vacuum lines, and fender braces. Spot lights, bug deflector on hood, colored headlight visors, custom made side view mirrors, Fulton visor, scratch made safety star are all other highly detailed parts made for this 1/25 scale gem. Paint is fifties aqua with automotive clear.

Molded Revell LA Chopper Kit

I thought this model was worthy of a post as I dig the mold job the previous owner did with the seat and frame.  I'm not a huge fan of the paint but whoever bought this one on Ebay has a great canvas to work with!

Revell Harley Knucklehead #1 Drag Bike Model Kit

I had no prior knowledge that this Revell kit was even made but found these pictures on a completed Ebay search and will have to say it looks like a very cool model.  I love how the frame is painted in flake for the box photo too!

Above are a couple of photos taken by Rodney of the "Slow Poke" Triumph after the accident on 11/19/13.  An unlicensed driver turned left in front of me at night and this was the result.  I've got a couple of fractured toes and a blood clot in the right leg that I'll be on blood thinners for 6 months.  Current plan is to switch to low riders but will have to see what gives and works out with the bike. 

Ride safe as its a war zone out there!
