Lincoln Town Car | NASCAR style

Lincoln Town Car Nascar style | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2014)If you have a friend with questionable bad taste, you get inspired once in a while to create something unique and really out of the box. Bespoke friend just bought a 2000 Lincoln Town Car and because of the wheels being in desperate need of replacement, we thought deep dish steelies would look great. One thing led to another and ten minutes later the vision nightmare was complete. But hold on, it now definitely needed “more low” and a wing. OK, finished! Let me present: the NASCAR style Lincoln Town Car.

Land Rover Santana Series IIa Hot Rod

Land Rover Santana Series IIa Hot Rod Bomberos Linares | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2014)Creating a photoshop chop is easy, provided you have the tools, dedication and patience to do it properly. Creating a picture that stops people in their tracks because “it looks so real” is an entirely different story – and exactly what I aim for with my chops. Thinking about the possibility of building the project in reality is very important. Sometimes this is extremely complicated and prohibitively expensive – and sometimes it should be the proverbial piece of cake. This time around it’s the latter, because of the Land Rovers’ simple architecture, based on a ladder frame, and the straight panels. Y aquí – el Hot Rod des Bomberos de Linares. Why Linares? That’s easy to answer: because the Santana Series IIa in the picture I found is red and it has been built there. Or to use the phrase a friend coined many years ago: you can hot rod everything!

The way to Gatebil…

Gatebil Dump Truck | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2014)… may be a rough one! And quite frankly, this might not be the ideal vehicle to throw sideways around the corners of the track. But what the hell? It’s about arriving at the on-site camping with something even regular visitors have never seen before. Add a bit of creativity to the build and you might just as well have the only motor home with a giant bed, which can be leveled at the flick of a switch. Just imagine driving this the next time you head to Mantorp Park or Rudskogen! Why? #BecauseGatebil !!!

Alfa Romeo Arna US-spec

Alfa Romeo Arna | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2014)When Alfa Romeo and Nissan decided to team up and produce a car, they made a big mistake. The Arna featured Italian underpinnings and Japanese styling. Excuse me? Shouldn’t this be the other way around? As much as I like cars with straight lines, this one was just too bland and the scudetto up front is a joke. The car might have been fun to drive, but seriously lacked presence. Was it a runaway sales success? Well… trying to figure that out shouldn’t be too hard. However, even the blandest car may be used a base for something a little more exciting. This worked. Sort of. OK, not really. Sorry! Just look at the beautiful hood ornament then, will you? ;-)

Dodge C500 Custom

Dodge C500 Custom | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2014)A photoshop quickie, quite literally. A friend sent me a picture of the Dodge C500 and challenged me to modify it within a given time-frame of ten minutes. There is not much one can do in ten minutes, but hey – it was just for the heck of it anyways ;-)

Chrysler Newport Sedan

Chrysler Newport Sedan Custom | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2014)The proportions of some American cars from the 1970′s are a bit cartoonish. The Chrysler Newport Sedan is a great example. Just for fun and to emphasize the oddness, I added a couple of axles and extended the hood and trunk accordingly. The passenger area remained stock standard. Note: this is likely to be the first vehicle here at VirtualModels that still has the stock ride height ;-)

Aston Martin V8 Vantage Low Drag Coupé

Aston Martin V8 Vantage Low Drag Coupé | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2014)The Aston Martin V8 Vantage is a beautiful car, no doubt about it. However, the design of the lower rear end is debatable. This is why I choose the side view to create my idea of a low drag coupé. Chopping about an inch from the roof and lowering the car go a long way in improving the overall appearance. I could have removed the bumpers and chrome trim to suit the idea better, but decided to keep them to retain the classic look.

Ford Escort LX Wagon

Ford Escort LX Wagon | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2014)Who said compact family wagons are boring? Every boy sitting in the backseat of such a vehicle must have thought at one point that it would be really cool if Daddy modified the family hauler to add to the appearance. The Ford Escort LX Wagon pictured here was simply lowered, larger wheels have been fitted along with an airdam up front and a modified hood. Little things do make a difference…

A more muscular BMW 507 Roadster

BMW 507 Muscle RoadsterFew people would think this legendary BMW  designed by Albrecht Graf von Goertz needs more muscle or any other modification. And with the car being a high-priced classic it is probably wise not to tinker with it. However, sometimes you want to let your phantasy run wild, don’t you? Imagine if somebody with sufficient funds would get hold of a 507 roadster

I always thought this particular vehicle is very elegant and beautifully shaped – but the stance was never to my liking. The nose high up in the air just doesn’t cut it for me. Now, I could have lowered the car and be done with it. But no, I added a few subtle modifications like the period-correct wheels a chopped windshield and a larger exhaust. Who know what might be hiding under the hood? A supercharger would be nice you think? Let your imagination go crazy!

Alfa Romeo 4C Evoluzione

Alfa Romeo 4C EvoluzioneThe Alfa Romeo 4C is a nifty little sportscar, well worth of carrying the legendary brand name. However, I don’t like the stock headlights, because they do look very cheap and out of place on such a sculpted body. But hey, that is easily fixed with Adobe Photoshop…
