    Figured I'd start a thread for car cruises and other events people have been to with their ride or feet depending ;)

    I'll start her off with shots from my local cruise night held on the first Tuesday of the month all year around.

    First up I'll start with my car, its a 1977 Holden LX Torana. Its an Australian Muscle car and for the Americans its most comparable to say the Chevy Nova in terms of its idea/platform. Ie small car big engine.

    Its pretty unique Australian design as it doesn't really copy anything styling wise, and no doubt a few of you will see some stuff that looks like scaled down American cars. Early Aussie cars took a lot of ideas from you fellas, quite rightly to! ;)

    And off we go. I'll posting shots I've taken of from recent cruises and if anyone else has some shots please post them up, the more the merrier!

    8) Keep It Kustom...

    Camera used was a Pentax K200D

    That is a Mercury? Looks like the Fords from that time here in the States.

    Here a few pics of a few close friends cars and my dad's.

    Pic 1-1987 Olds Cutlass.

    Pic 2-SS Chevelle

    Pic 3-My Dad's 65 Plymouth Belvedere done up in the style of the NHRA Pro Stockers from the mid 60's.

    Pic 4-1965 Tempest custom.

    Pic 5-1985 Monte Carlo SS.

    Great pics Alex!

    As for the thread, do sketches count aswell? Drew a mate's souped up '34 Ford once, you'd probably like it.

    I thought of this thread when we were at the Cable Air Show, and I thought of Aaron's great cars. These are some of the classic and customs cars at the show, hope you enjoy.

    49 Ford's are often called a baby Merc I believe. I'll have to get some pics scanned of the 50 M<erc my dad had. Sweet old lowered and flamed Merc.

    Hopefully better late than never!

    This is a 'photograph of a copy of a sketch' I did in 1995 of a mate's '34 Ford hot rod. Quality is reduced as such...
    My mate Rod built her himself and took 'Best of show' at the 1993 NZ Hot Rod Championships with her. She's 'Deep purple' in colour.

    (Picture looks grainy on the computer...[email protected] The original is alot smoother, looks almost real in places)

    If someone could resize the bugger too, I'd appreciate it !!!

    Cheers, Evan

    Cool, love that amphibian car. I want one!!! Drive to the lake, drive into the lake, do some fishing, drive out of the lake and home. No messing around at the boat landning. Plus it would make it easier to get away from the Police;)

    49-51 Merc are some nice looking cars and make some of the best Hotrods/Customs IMHO.
