Without a doubt, the most difficult part of yesterday's post was deciding which pictures to use. The custom division was a wealth of vintage custom beauties and for each photo selected, there were easily two or three more that were equally worthy. Here are a few that just barely missed the cut.
Once again, I'm starting with a Lynn Fraley model. I just love her old customs!
|Jemez Aguilar (Fraley) owned by Laura Keefer|
This colorful guy was created by the late Judy Renee Pope.
|Atari Baby (Pope) owned by Laura Keefer|
|Kalico Kat (Capwell) owned by Laura Keefer|
|Hoi Polloi (Rivera) owned by Laura Keefer|
And the Froelichs! Oh, there were so many Froelichs at this show!
|Marney's Treasure (Froelich) owned by Laura Keefer|
I especially like this draft mare...
|RM Last Rose of Summer (Froelich) owned by Laura Keefer|
|Roses Don't Fade (Froelich) owned by Laura Keefer|
Proof that Diane Capwell isn't the only one who knows how to make a spotty mule!
|RM Pop Art (Froelich) owned by Laura Keefer|
Yet another one of Julie's beauties--the artists of yesteryear were as prolific as they were talented!
|S&M Nonstop Cabaret (Froelich) owned by Laura Keefer|
This next model is an older piece by my friend Tiffany Purdy. Unlike many of the artists featured in this post, Tiff is still creating amazing drastic customs.
