I've been conducting some research online regarding some of my early memories of Friday night stock car races in Harlan, Iowa that I used to go to with my dad when I was in my pre-teen years. I found a picture of one of the cars that I fondly remember that was a consistent winner week after week. I'm planning on building a scale model of this car in the near future just as soon as I can get the decals identified and the artwork for them made. I rendered this up in Illustrator last night in an effort to get the size of the decals correct. Stay tuned...

As many of my viewers may know, I am an Airstreamer. Not only that but I am a vintage Airstreamer. Now by that, I don't mean that I am an old Airstreamer but rather an owner of a vintage Airstream. The Airstream travel trailer has been around since the mid 1930s and are still in production today in Jackson Center, Ohio. They are the quintessential American icon.
Along with vintage Airstream ownership, there is a caravan club bearing the name of the Airstream founder. Recently, there is also another club that is in the early stages of formation and I wanted to contribute by creating the club logo. I had a very rough draft from which to work and after a few renditions, the founders were very pleased.
