Purple Haze - 1948 Shepard - 22' (for motivation and comparison purposes)

Postby JPM98Keydet » Mon Sep 12, 2016 5:08 am

Whether furniture or timberframes, I look for ideas and inspiration in historic examples. Figured the same could apply in this forum. This was one of my favorites observed this weekend at the Smith Mountain Lake ACBS show.

Features that are especially interesting to me are the combination windshield bracket/navigation light and the seat pedestals.

Hope its of some value to y'all as well.

Very Cool!! Art Deco-ish. It is always great when people add their spin on things and put on the "Creative Hat". Very much food for thought in trying to make something uniquely your own. KUDOS!!! Thanks for sharing!!
