For DONO & the Derby:
Flower Pins made from Vintage Zippers - These turned out really cute, maybe I'll do a tutorial on em
Buttons with Clever Derby sayings and original art- "Derby Girls Do It on All Fours" "Hell on Wheels" "Roller Derby is in My Blood" w/ splatter of red etc...etc...
Sea Shell Shrines - made of lil' clam shells with pics of icons like Bettie Paige, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, Buddy Holly, Johnny Cash...you get the idea!
Spring Fling Car Show
I don't know if I've mentioned it but I work at a sign shop and get to use the scrap from larger jobs on my own projects. I made some stuff and it practically SOLD OUT in the first few hours. I made over $100 just on my own Merch!
Bumper Stickers- "Al Bundy Drove a Dodge" "This Aint your Granny's Slant Six", "It's not about how fast you go, its about how long you last" w/ a pic of a slant 6 engine (which are renowned for their dependability, not sexual innuendo you dirty birds!)
Small PVC Placards- "Hungry Hungry Hemi" , "Mopar or No Car" "Chrysler Country" etc... etc...
Before the Bundy stickers sold out completely, I snapped a pic of the one on my bumper
Again, I'll try to add pics of the Merch later but I did get a lot of pics of my friends and their cars and the cars of others! I also entered my beloved yet pretty janky lookin' Dart Wagon in the show portion. They had a category for Work In Progress and she definitely fits the bill. It turns out that you had to go back on Sunday for the judging portion of the car show. We all had enough car talk by the end of the day so me and my pals decided to recover on Sunday instead.
Here she is in all her glory, with my friend's Ultra Vans!
That's Jeff the Mopar Master's Ultra Van on the left, Little Lucy the Dart Wagon in the middle and Rockin' Richards's Ultra Van on the right
And now the owners!
Not pictured Edgar & Stephanie who are member's of the Daily Drivers Car Club in Ventura and my pals from Ventura who woke up crazy early to come with me to the show, YOU GUYS RULE!
You can read more about the car show itself and see a ton of pictures over at my car blog. Head over to www.JumpStartMyHeart.blogspot.com It is less about car restoration and more about the way I feel when I drive her and the crazy adventures we get into! Its more of a read than the eye candy of this blog, but totally worth it! Please check it out. (car show blog to come later today)
Now I have to get back to my regularly scheduled blog topics: JUNK-O-LA!!! Just wait till you see what I picked up last Sunday....tease.....tease...tease......stay tuned!
