Fireball Design MONDAY… MAXXED-OUT MINI COOPERS!

Here’s a variety of MINI COOPERS I did for various projects. Full size builds, Toys, Client Concepts. All pretty fun and there’s a lot more coming.

Fireball Design WEDNESDAY… 1971 PLYMOUTH GTX

Johnny Lightning’s BAD MOOD 2 featured a 1971 Plymouth GTX. Badass…

Though completely redesigned for 1971, this was the final year for the GTX as a stand-alone model.

Engine choices were 440 four-barrel, 440 with three two-barrels (Six Barrel), and 426 Hemi.

Emission restrictions such as lower compression ratios and faster-acting choke operation lowered the base 440 output by 5 hp (3.7 kW), to 370 hp (280 kW).

The 440 Six Barrel was down to 385 hp (287 kW), but the Hemi was still rated at 425 hp (317 kW).

Due partly to rising insurance rates on muscle cars, sales were low.

There were less than 3000 units produced in ’71. For 1972 through 1974, any Road Runner ordered with the optional 440 was renamed Road Runner GTX and included the badging of both previous models.

Fireball Design SUNDAY… JEEP WRANGLER

This was a quick sketch I did for Kathie a few years back. Bought this Jeep Wrangler in 1998, drive the hell out of it everywhere with never a problem. Gave it to our son Sean and then early this year (2017) it met it’s demise when a pickup truck hit it head-on on PCH at 4am. It was sold for parts.

Ah, the life of a Jeep is not an easy one… but sure is fun.

Fireball Design TUESDAY… THE MAGNUMATOR

A fun Toy Concept again for a Dodge Product. This time, THE MAGNUMATOR answers the question that if Cyberdyne Systems built a Car.

Fireball Design MONDAY… THE LAW CHARGER

Another Dodge Toy Concept I did before Chargers actually became Cop cars. This one, a bit of BRUTE FARCE. Known within the company as “Lil Thumper.”

Fireball Design SATURDAY… DODGE ADMIRAL CHALLENGER

As part of my “Tuned Hollywood Series,” an updated and resto-modded Dukes Charger was brought into the 21st Century as THE ADMIRAL. I did this piece to bury old wounds and tie us together as a nation. This is something I’d really like to build. Anyone out there up for a challenge Americana?

Fireball Design WEDNESDAY… CHRYSLER 300 CONCEPT

This render was originally done with CHRYSLER as a potential SEMA Project a year after the launch of the 300. Since then, it’s been used for a variety of marketing purposes including The Hollywood Garage. Includes Fireball’s original flamin’ logo head!

About the CHRYSLER 300…

The Chrysler 300 is a rear-wheel-drive, front-engine, full-sized luxury car manufactured and marketed by Chrysler as a four door sedan and station wagon its first generation (model years 2005-2010) and solely as a four-door sedan in its second and current generation (model years 2011-present).

The 300 debuted as a concept at the 2003 New York Auto Show with styling by Ralph Gilles and production starting in April 2004 for the 2005 model year.

The second generation 300 was marketed as the Chrysler 300C in the United Kingdom and Ireland and as the Lancia Thema in the remainder of Europe.

The Chrysler 300 was designed as a modern interpretation of the Chrysler C-300 (and the letter series Chryslers that followed), featuring a large grille, long hood and low roofline that was prominent on those vehicles.

The styling retained many elements of the 1998 Chrysler Chronos concept car, such as chrome interior accents and tortoiseshell finishings on the steering wheel and shifter knob.

The Chrysler 300 is based on the rear-wheel drive Chrysler LX platform with components derived from the W211 Mercedes-Benz E-Class of 2003 to 2009.

Shared components include the rear suspension design, front seat frames, wiring harnesses, steering column, the 5-speed automatic transmission’s design, and a derivative of the 4Matic all-wheel drive system.

Fireball Design TUESDAY… CHEVY VOLT

This client wanted a both clean and wild version of his Chevy Volt. He chose the clean, but both look pretty sweet. Do YOU need a Fireball graphic design?

Fireball Design MONDAY… CORVETTES!

These Vettes were done for a variety of clients. The ’71 a personal client, Split Window for a Commercial and the StealthVette for a Toy Company doing Military Racers. All mixed media and digital enhance.

About CORVETTEThe Chevrolet Corvette, known colloquially as the Vette or Chevy Corvette, is a sports car manufactured by Chevrolet.

The car has been produced through seven generations.

The first model, a convertible, was introduced at the GM Motorama in 1953 as a concept show car.

Myron Scott is credited for naming the car after the type of small, maneuverable warship called a corvette.

Originally built in Flint, Michigan and St. Louis, Missouri, the Corvette is currently manufactured in Bowling Green, Kentucky and is the official sports car of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
