'68 Olds 442
This '68 Olds 442 was done for $7,000!  The stripes were painted first then taped off. The main color was then painted,  the stripes untaped and then clear coated inlaying the stripe into the paint!
The stripes on the hood are the rocket, the chrome on the hood is the engine.
The trunk is the jet stream, the lights represent the flame, the silver on the ends is the smoke.
