Look what awesome shit I created ...
« on: January 23, 2019, 10:25:22 AM »
Hi guys,

I always loved the cool ads Cadillac put out in the fifties and sixties. I also thought that Jay Leno has the coolest artwork in his big dog garage. So I took the original ad for my 61 Caddy Fleetwood, high resolution scanned, changed the color of the car in the add to the color of my car and then had it printed on canvas with the size of 120 cm x 90 cm (my wife didnít allow any bigger in our living room ... turned out nice. What do you think?

I ask if you will sell one.  Can I get my color?

Sure ... but considering the size I will make you the photoshop file and we'll have it printed in the US.

That's easier than carrying it on the plane ...

You don't have to pay for that.

Looks awesome.
I have all of the ads from that series, and they only have a convertible in red...I have yet to run across an ad like that for the Biarritz...do you know if there ever was one for 1961 Biarritz? I'd love to have it if any one knows of one or a scan.
Thanks!

Since you guys are fascinated with reproducing ads, here is my car show sign I created in photoshop. You will note the crest and chevron which I also recreated for the ad. I make these for car collectors for shows or garages. They are reproduced on aluminum with a high gloss finish. I have made quite a few for other CLC members. My website is listed with my name below.

I also created this 3 ft x 5 ft rug for the entrance to my office.

Tuck, you've inspired me to make my own Cadillac advertisement!
