That is a piece of lawn art for my wife. We don't talk about that around here...

It is a 1955 Dodge C1B. I picked it up for a song a couple years back but didn't want to start working on it until the bonded title expired and it became clean. Then I found my dream Chevy before that happened and it became semi-permanent art.

My wife decorates it for the holidays and looks at it out the kitchen window.

Maybe she'd like it better if it's FUNCTIONAL lawn ornament.

See Category #2


2. Flora-Trucka

The Flora-Trucka category is the ever popular and, pardon the pun, ever-green, collection of derelicts with nature’s beauty growing in, on or through them. A sub-genre is the well-known “A Tree Grows Through It” category of de rigueur trees-through-the-engine-compartment kitsch. Delightful, if somewhat cliché at this point.

Peggy, John is good at stealing threads, did you learn from him or did he learn from you?

Back on topic, Jason, we may need your help and thank you for offering. I’ll be in contact with Mongo and see what he comes up with.
No input on the color of the shirt? Then it may be pink? I like light colored shirts for the summer time!

I think this topic has been there and back.

John's not the only one. wink

Nothing like starting a NEW thread.

At least helping to keep KC in Active Threads.

I'm cool with pink if my opinion as a rocky mountain bolter means anything.

Fib, yes your vote counts, because no one else has offered up any different colors or thoughts.

X2 for what Craig says (think I would fall into "looks scary" category in pink lol).

Don,

Do you recall if any previous T-shirt colors where green?

Thinking a dark green similar to AD period paint color might work. Would provide a good background for a contrasting design color (creme?) to highlight the design.

Whatever color is decided, please put my dibs in for an XLG as I plan to try and attend this year if at all possble.

Thanks, Dan

I thought the pink would get some input.
Keep the ideas coming!
