           Does anyone have auto related hobbies. Here are some pics of pen and ink that I've done. I draw trains, cars and what have you.  Anybody have collections of old gas station signs, dealer signs, oil cans, or old car ads? lets see what you have.

           Thanks guys.   I use to do personals of vehicals but haven't for a long time now. The only dodge stuff I've done is a 68 GTX and a 70 340 Dart. I do have a 50 Power Wagon that I've been working on for a long time now. I worked in my dads sign shop years ago, did alot of freehand lettering mainly truck doors. That's why I like old gas station signs, some of those old signs were pretty cool.

    Over the hill, those are fantastic. I've always loved pen and ink but have never been very good at it. I typically stick with acrylics or oils. I'll post some random things below.

    As for the original question, I have a pretty healthy collection of Hot Wheels cars. I have some from when I was a kid, and a few hundred in packages Iíve purchased here and there along the way.

              Hey there Skwerly those match box collections can be massive. I've got a neighbor that's has a collection of those twenty five years plus. It covers a fifteen foot long wall. You have any rare ones? He also has the original Monogram models of the Big-T and the 63 Corvette.

         Ramchargerkate that is nice work! I really like the seahorse. I know where there is a 36" saw blade, I can already picture your work on it. You have some great talent-keep it up.

    Yeah, for a while there i was even going to the huge shows and getting 20 and 30 dollar cars, so i've got some hard to find stuff.  Been so long i don't remember which ones, but i've still got em.  :D

    Thanks Over the hill! I would love to get my hands on another saw blade but they seem hard to find. They make really nice accent pieces...whether above fireplaces or in the garage! I think I may start looking for them and possibly start painting and selling them :)
