Chevrolet Express Van 3500 Roadtrek 210 Popular | Drift RV

This was another one of those 15 minute challenges: create a camper van or RV that would be fun to drift, if equipped with an engine that makes suitable torque and horsepower. I started looking for a base picture to begin the photoshop chop. The Roadtrek 210 Popular, based on the  rear wheel drive V8 Chevrolet Express Van, has a very nice and sporty looking body kit that accomodates a set of overfenders nicely. With a set of Watanabe-style wheels that are converted to an 8-lug pattern and a healthy drop in ride height this beast might take you to the race track, provide all kinds of drifting fun during the day and living quarters for the night. You would have to secure all your cutlery and other items very securely for the drift sessions, though. 😉

PS: It could also be a nice and capable tow-rig for a drift car.

Chevrolet Celebrity Ad Customized

Who didn’t love “spot the differences” pictures as a kid?

A friend of mine recently bought a Pontiac Bonneville SSE and one of the line-drawings in the manual left us guessing which car it actually depicted. It definitely wasn’t a Bonneville, that’s for sure. But, as always, our collective car brains eventually figured out what it was: an A-body Chevrolet Celebrity. While searching our brains google I found this old ad for the aforementioned vehicle and send it to my friends. We had a good laugh, mostly because of the mentioning of advanced technology. 🙂

Anyway… being the photoshop artist I am, there was no way I could leave the picture alone. Keeping with my motto that every vehicle has at least some sort of potential to look less boring I went to work. Ten minutes later it was finished: lowered, wheels anlarged and changed from convex to concave surface, sideskirts modified and a front airdam added. Looks less forgetable now, doesn’t it?

Time and again it is basically just a matter of subtle changes like lowering the car and adding a nice(er) set of wheels to make it look better…

No comment necessary. Just a quick chop for fun…

Corvette C3 with a twist

Just for fun I created the twisted Corvette C3 Stingray from an image I had already altered a little.

Chevrolet Malibu SS Hardtop Coupé

Finding the original picture inspired me to create a picture that could have been taken like that back then. The Chevrolet Malibu SS Hardtop Coupé is a car with rather subdued styling. I wanted to keep the original lines and just modified them a little bit.

Chevrolet Corvette C3 StingRay

Yeah! As long as I can think I loved the third generation of the Chevrolet Corvette. This vehicle doesn’t need much tinkering to look awesome. Lower, larger diameter wheels, some touch-ups
 done.

1957 Chevrolet Nomad Delivery Custom

The 1957 Chevrolet has always been a favorite amongst fans of the 50’s fins and chrome era. Especially the rare Nomad wagon is heavily sought after these days. Not many people would dare to weld the windows shut on such an iconic vehicle. But hey… we’re not talking about reality. Real world rules don’t apply to the world of photo manipulation, where deleting a couple of layers from your photoshop file restores the car to its original shape and value. Just imagine what it would be like to actually do it and drive it to a car show. Now… would you do it?

Chevrolet 3100 Pick-Up Dually

Found this picture of the Chevrolet 3100 Pick-Up over at autowp.ru and instantly thought I’d have to modify it. The truck is now a top-chopped dually. Quite impressive, isn’t it? The proportions now make it look like a larger truck. Other than the modifications already mentioned, I kept it mostly stock. No need to mess with a great design like that!

1956 Chevy Nomad with Shasta trailer

Color splash! When I found the picture of the 1956 Chevrolet Nomad with the color-matched Shasta trailer, I instantly wanted to convert it into a color splash picture. But that’s not all. The car and the trailer have been lowered substantially. The track has been widened along with a few touch-ups here and there.

Chevrolet Nomad Concept Racecar | photoshop cby Sebastian Motsch (2009)

Chevrolet Nomad Racecar Concept

Relatively small and nimble, with a beefy V8 engine. Why should the Chevrolet Nomad Concept not become a racecar? I imagine it to be quite a lot of fun drive. Many pieces from other cars have been added to this otherwise clean design. Lowered and with uniball joints all around it should go around corners like the looks suggest. There is no idea for a livery as of now.
