Why settle for the cake when you can have the frosting, too? Layers of it! Baby Bear Gangster B-Vision widebody, Futura big brake kit, Avant Garde F244s, a sparkly, color-shifting wrap... too much to list. @dubstepslap415 isn't fucking around.
Color me jealous. @accordaerodeck's first car is well... exactly what you would think it is. He's over in Germany where you can actually buy this car, apparently. Never sold here, though, which is why I'm jealous. He won this illustration by correctly guessing my daily Sneak Peek five times, as could you. Every morning I post a hint for the next day's illustation and you, too, could win a freebie. Good luck!
Commission 9/12 for Chris Frye. His third car: 1997 Honda Civic HX coupe.
Another one of my old vehicles in the mix. This S2000 was being driven by an 80-year-old man who lived in the country down a long bumpy driveway. His back was hurting and his wife got sick of hearing him complain so made him sell the car. I snapped this low-mile, salvage-title AP2 up for $10,000! I managed to get my hands on a GReddy turbo kit that was collecting dust on the layaway shelf of a local shop and a friend installed it the next day. I loved this little turbo beast until a lazy driver sideswiped me as she was cheating her way onto a backed-up freeway onramp and didn't notice me waiting in line.
Laurenz (@lau_dega96) correctly guessed three IDYC hints so earned himself an illustration. This is his second and current CR-V, after the first sacrificed itself to save him and his aunt in a T-bone accident. Do you want your car illustrated? Check out the commission page on my site for more information, or you can earn a freebie by guessing on my daily Instagram hint.
Commission 15/26 (car #24/26) for Doug S in Portland OR. Having recently gotten into competitive small sailboat racing, this rig was exactly what he needed to travel from regatta to regatta with all of his gear.
Commission 13/26 (car #14/26) for Doug S in Portland OR. After a string of "cars with character" it was time for something reliable and economical.
Another blast from the past. I found this poor Civic on a car lot with a blown engine. Our shop had plenty of new SOHC engines laying around from swaps, so I dropped in a low-mile 1.6L and bolted on some coilovers and a set of wheels I had laying around. What a fun little car. Now I see them everywhere, scraping the ground. I didn't know I was such a pioneer.
