Behind the Seams - A day of racing

1970Ford

I remember when I was growing up my father had a 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1. It was blue with a yellow racing stripe. I remember when my dad would take me to school how all the other guys used to talk about how cool that car was. One time after picking me up he really opened her up on a back street, we got pulled over but the officer gave him a warning because even he admitted that the car was "just perfection."

I knew that this season I was going to pull heavily from the auto scene of the 1970's as my inspiration, and when I sat down to design the Smalls there was one car that sticked out in my mind. The blue with the settle yellow detail is a tribute to that car, and maybe in a way to my dad.
