MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   A lot of Vega Wagon dragsters. You can tub the rear end easier.   2008-01-15 18:37:19
VonDadaSend VonDada a message :   "crosshair: somehow I have one of these. the poster not the Vega." You should consider yourself lucky on both parts.   2008-01-15 17:36:14
VonDadaSend VonDada a message :   Yeah, you just have to completely replace the drivetrain and weld angle iron to the frame rails because it can't handle the torque of a big V8. Seems like a lotta work to me.   2008-01-15 17:34:46

dave mortensonSend dave mortenson a message :   ok all this silly "car talk" doesnt have much to with this frankly bitchin' poster, but isnt the car more like something from american motors, say a '72 javelin? thats even cooler than a vega. ive seen exactly one of each (running) since i moved to portland. :mrgreen:   2004-04-13 19:52:58

MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   I know the ZR1 had the aluminum block. I'm pretty sure they are standard now. Thats a good engine. Stays cooler. More horse power.   2003-06-02 20:39:13
dspringSend dspring a message :   as far lt-1 vettes, there were something a short run made in the 71-73 production with aluminum blocks but the standard small block 350 was the norm (I don't know about modern LT-1s)   2003-06-02 20:22:03

perkinsSend perkins a message :   Oh, I thought it was one of those cherry Opels. My bad.

Joe KonopkaSend Joe Konopka a message :   c'mon artie sign me a napkin or something, i wanna get paid   2002-03-27 10:48:11
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   oh, and joe... yes this is art chantry and no, i won't send you an autographed poster unless you give me something valuable - like a pint or your blood. and don't try to pawn off some damn rock poster on me. if i want a rock poster, i'll MAKE a rock poster, thank you.   2002-03-27 10:46:43
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   mike king is an xtremely witty funny intelligent man. and that's what he always brings to his work, no matter what he does. the thing i truly LOVE about this poster is that it's a rag on the whole pseudo-cool hotrod/house industries aesthetic. you all noticed the green oil slick and the connection to the band's names (built to spill, the delusions), but have you noticed that it's a vega or a pinto or a maverick or some some lousy piece of shit car? it's a piece of crap leaky 70's no-muscle car done in house styling as joke on all that 70's retro-hip veneer cool. great joke.   2002-03-27 10:43:19
Steve HSend Steve H a message :   Granted,you have said that,i apologise forthwith ;-)   2002-03-27 10:25:31
Steve HSend Steve H a message :   Yea its not that original an idea but its one thats been executed pretty well in my opinion,you say its early 90's art,in all honesty i would've thought the origin of the car covered in information on a poster would have been earlier than that.   2002-03-27 10:24:46
Joe KonopkaSend Joe Konopka a message :   is this the real art chantry? if so send me an autographed piece of yours   2002-03-27 10:15:42
art chantrySend art chantry a message :   your frame of reference is way too recent. i was doing this stuff for estrus in the early 90's, other folks were doing it in seattle before me. where do you think house gets it's ideas? they keep very close tabs on what's going on out there. they watch and learn and copy in the true tradition of graphic design. they seem to be a little more bottom-feeder than most. they've actually used my logo work to advertise their 'tiki' typefaces - without my permission.
i dunno, i get so tired of all the copycats out there. imitation is only a single step in the process of learning. way too many people just freeze at this first step. it's much more intersting to move beyond it and begin to interperate these visuals into some newer ideas.
mike king is a buddy of mine and he'd be the first to say he was doing this to learn via imitation - he understands the creative learning process. he's moved way beyond this look now.

Nolen StralsSend Nolen Strals a message :   House did something like this, and this looks like it uses House Fonts, but those guys did custom type by hand (based ON their own fonts) for all that stuff as far as I know, they didnt' just bend the type and add perspective to it, etc.
The colors on this are soo not what I would have done, but it turned out nicely. I like the pun of the green oil spill underneath here too.

Joe KonopkaSend Joe Konopka a message :   true i think i saw this done by house industries, but i like it !   2002-03-27 08:59:31
Stainboy ReinelSend Stainboy Reinel a message :   I'm with 'ya, Harry. This is very cool. I like the oozing green oil spill underneath the car, also.   2002-03-19 15:42:09
