I finally figured out how to post an image so I thought this would be as good a place as any to post a collage of my build. I owned this 2000 Dodge van from it's birth NEW. I put 217000 miles on beasty and used her every day for my shows traveling ac cross the country. My wife and I had to make a decision to either buy new or let me resurrect her into a Hot Rod van....it's almost done just some interior, sunroof and of course I have to paint the murals (being that's what I did most of my early career)lastly some minor interior mods since I still plan on loading her up and towing a trailer to all my conventions and show it will be an every day driver van. Enjoy and thanks for all the support I have received so far. This is a great site and I am proud to be welcomed in.

Thanks Ken, although I create all my paintings for publishing OLD SCHOOL hand painted on canvas....I must admit photoshop can come in handy with advertising and product work....As a matter of fact I am releasing within the next month a line of Fantasy Art aluminium License plate novelty tags with my art on them. Since most of my original paintings are portrait and not landscape I had use photoshop to fit the art across the tags so it comes in handy to do layout for ads and products..

I would like to get some feedback from my fellow Vanners on wether these Noveltie Tags would be cool for them?
