An Aside--53 Vette "Don Yost Style"

Image
As a Christmas gift to myself I bought Don Yost's "Airbrushing Model Cars" DVD....Yost apparently is an old pro who has won top prize at every model car building contest ever held since the beginning of time. This guy has a pretty different take on airbrushing than the direction I have been going.  For one, he uses (exclusively?) enamel paints from Testors, mixed with laquer thinner, and sprayed through an external mix airbrush.  He makes it look easy....

I didn't want to try this different take on airbrushing on my 60 Vette Gasser project since I had invested too much time in customizing and "engineering"--I saw myself melting the plastic with laquer thinner.  Instead I grabbed up a really old AMT 53 Vette kit I bought at a swap meet for $5, prepped the parts, and started spraying!

The result?  Yost's method is fast, quick, easy, and REALLY REALLY WORKS!  



I had this vision of using his method to knock out the entire project in one rainy December day--bui…

ferrari car Nothing displays power, elegance, and a rich tradition in automotive history, as does the roaring blur of a Ferrari speeding down the road. When Ferrari first fueled his cars in Monaco for the first edition of the famed Formula 1 World Championship in 1950, a fine tradition and legacy was established. Only a privileged few enjoy the luxury of owning such a fine vehicle. Protecting your Ferrari should come as second nature, as is the case when you protect your child. Having the right kind of car insurance is essential to preserving your Ferrari car. The first step is to call for auto insurance rates. Just because you have a fine, luxury sports vehicle doesn’t mean you have to call for a quote through some company with a golden lining. There are several companies out there that match drivers with policies based on the type of car they own, the type of coverage they want, and their past driving history. Whether you own a vehicle that set you back over 200K, or an economical 1…

A Consideration of Jerome (AZ Ghost Town), Changing Culture and Hillclimb Races

Image
My wife and I recently spent a day in the AZ hill town (also one time ghost town) of Jerome Arizona.Throughout Jerome, I found evidence of a significant motorcycle and car history.Viewed through the lens of a large time gap between Jerome’s heyday and now, cultural changes were apparent.
To those of you unfamiliar with Jerome, in the early 20thcentury Jerome was a thriving mining town, that dwindled with changing copper economies and eventually closed up shop in the 50’s.Following the mines closing, the town was largely abandoned until a collection of free thinkers and free rangers seized upon the opportunity for free housing.Eventually, the free thinking collection of inhabitants landed upon thinking of capitalism, and the town populated with artisan shops, which now thrive.
As you explore Jerome today you will find several museums and, due to the historic nature of the city, the majority of the remainder of the city can be considered something of a living museum.
Our first stop was the…
