HOT ROD HIGHWAY
This very traditional 29 Highboy was originally owned by Bud Bryan and served as project car for Rod & Custom Magazine in the 70s. The car still resides in Southern California under the watchful care of master automotive detailer, Jullian Alverez. I photographed the car at So-Cal Speed Shop in Pomona, California where it was awaiting some minor repairs. I chose this car for my original painting because it is very typical of cars that were driven to the dry lakes or Bonneville to compete in speed trials in the 40s and 50s. The background is Bonneville. I added the Kong decal as a tribute to the late Kong Jackson whose speed equipment was found on many of the faster cars of the day.Signed and Numbered Limited Edition Print from an edition of 1800 copies, 10" x 20", $75.
