Hillsdown...it's a 1927 Dodge Touring car.

Jassy...I free handed everything except the outside border...I did tape those off because I didn't think I could stay straight that far LOL It was something different...didn't have anything to do with the wedding...or fence. Was a nice break from what has been goin on around here for a while. LOL

Nice job painting the license plates. Those old vehicles are pretty nifty also.

My grandmother used to paint pictures on a different kind of plate--a dinner plate. Usually it was the head of a horned Hereford bull. They turned out pretty good. She also painted pictures on neckties.

Hahaha well that wasn't my choice. I sat down to get ready to paint...and made the comment..."Guess I should get a newspaper or something to put under these" and Mr Lilly left the room and came back with what you see for me to use.

Interesting topic. I found a 1951 Texas plate in the road ditch South East of Baker, MT about ten years ago it was yellow in color and a shorter plate that those pictured. That was about the time oil was discovered in this area.
