Member Names and Avatar's.....Explain Yourself

Some Avatar's are obvious, others not so much.

How about posting up why you chose yours, and what it means?

Mine is one of those obvious ones. The engine is the only "shiny" thing on the truck.

Rich,

You still got the First Gen. Camaro? What else you got in the garage we haven't seen yet?

Back in "the day" guys were modifying old roadsters to make speed runs on the dry lakes. They called these purpose built hot rods Lakes Roadsters. Here's the photo (circa 1953) I saw that was the inspiration that started my roadster build back in July 2000, a 26-27 roadster pickup on 32 rails. (Photo is from the book Dry Lakes and Drag Strips, The American Hot Rod, by Dean Batchelor
And here's an aged photo of my version of a Lakes Roadster, a 1927 vintage body and bed, on '32 rails:
The old roadster even got a bit of magazine coverage in 2006:

Re: Member Names and Avatar's.....Explain Yourself

Rich,

Is that a factory stripe on the side? I ask because it seems there were different variations of these.


My Camaro has had a repaint.
