1965 Plymouth Barracuda with revised lines.
Small Mercury Hybrid for China.
C H O P S — The same generic 'winding road' background was used in these two very different looking chops. The top one is a revised 1965 Plymouth Barracuda, with revisions to the C pillar mostly. This was also the Exner/Engel period at Chrysler, with Engel 'filling out the box' of Exner's earlier forms. The bottom photo shows a small Mercury for the Chinese-domestic market, the Monterery Hybrid. I used a high-tech feel with a totally different palette than the warmer, older 'Cuda image. I also use similar cobblestone images for the 'floors' in my chops. I have about 5 stock images that I use to create new ones for each chop. I consider using existing pieces of images like this to be the same as 'sampling' in music mixing and collage-work in other fields of art. Plus, it's only a hobby after all, lol.
