Mighty A-Tona by flying-polock Mighty A-Tona by flying-polock
Finished for, and published in Truckin' Magazine, I humbly present a cry for help.... I mean, an idea that has plagued my imagination since youth. A Dodge A-100, Daytona-style! ....with some wheelstander thrown in for good measure.
TONS of mods on this one, from the blown Hemi to the wing, new, Charger-esque front end, scooped doors, slammed stance, v-butted windshield.... Lots going on.
As always, pencil rough scannede in, Illustrator CS2 for more time than I care to admit...
Hope you like it as much as I do!

CS2 is fairly easy to pick up, if you've used Illustrator in the past...
Thanks!

What does v-butted windshield mean? :?
Reply
:iconflying-polock:
flying-polock Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2007  Professional General Artist
By all means, get the issue! V-butted means that I took a two-piece widshield, and simply moved the two halve together, effectively "butting" them together.... It leaves a "v" shape, hence the name.
Thanks for asking! I love when a drawing sparks further interest!
