Ok, Ok, it is time for the car-porn...

This shot was used in the 2018 Colorado Tri-State Swap meet calendar...Ms. November... [love][love]

Stop your drool'n [tongue]

You will notice a few things missing from these shots...like an interior...doh!

 This shot has a little digital camera magic going on...

Same shot without the digital highlights...

Here is where it all started...
I had a local Colorado artist put together a few renderings for me...
Steve H. does a lot of the artwork for the major car shows in the Denver area.
I had the privilege of working for IMSA as an Scrutineer for a few years...hence the "Gulf" motif.  A bit much for a daily driver...but it is so cool![cool][cool]

You can already see by the pictures that I opted for the Copper/Burnt Orange color...

Let's take a look at what the interior looks like:

What type of seats had to go in the Ranchero....??

Ba-bam!  Ford Racing RECARO Seats...ah, of course [eek][wink]  Yes, they expensive but what type of upholstery work isn't...??

Now we are getting somewhere...Take note of the hopefully tasteful combination of the modern instrument cluster and the otherwise relatively stock dash.


I know, I know, what no "stick"!IMGP3449.jpg 
The AC vents are stock, the center console is "temporary".  Just something to hold the front speakers for now.  I need to do something like a TMI console that went into Stacey's Eliminator Cougar project.

These are "stock" Ford Fairlane XL door panels and arm rests.  I added power windows as the Ranchero and Farilane share the same doors except the Ranchero has a window frame.  My favorite detail here is the custom made "Ranchero" emblem, where this would normally say "Fairlane XL" etc...  [thumb]


   Here is a shot in the new car delivery bay of our local Ford dealer...

Note the Boss Mustang parked next to the Ranchero, that is "green" with envy...[biggrin][biggrin].  Could not pass that one up... [rolleyes]

Notice the color shift under the lights at night vs. the earlier pictures in the sunlight...Triple pearl in the paint... the color is truly amazing!

More pictures to come...

To quote a person we all respect and admire:
"Now get out there and start working on something...!" [wave][wave]
