Ever wondered what a classic luxury coach would look like black and sporting hot rod looking flames? Well Chris the owner of this bad a$$ looking Newell has it going on. What else would you expect from an auto body shop owner that is into some serious drag racing action.

That is way cool! There are actually some Newell owners getting creative around here and I'm glad to see the changes.

That is a really nifty coach. I realize it would only fit certain personalities but when is the last time you seen a Newell in flames?

Jack that's true I wouldn't necessarily want flames on our coach. But it doesn't mean I don't think a Newell with flames on it isn't inspiring! It's unique and darn right outstanding! What else can this guy Chris do? :thumbup: Has he painted other coaches?

I think this paint job goes just fine and dandy when you are pulling something like this behind it.

:thumbsup:I'd love to see a fire breathing diesel in the coach!! Any pics of the two together Ken? Maybe a couple of nice bikinis to go with!! Would make nice shop art.

Keith I'll request a picture for you. Hopefully I can fulfill your drool!:drool: I do have some other car pics of his. He has a really nice bike also. Back when I was in the service and shortly after I raced an econoline front engine dragster for a couple of seasons then ran out of money and had to sell her. It was black with flames sort of like this race car. Anyway, as I mentioned before Chris painted this Newell and the matching painted drag car. He is a darn good mural painter and his flame work is just a tease of what I have seen of his work.

He told me that he would gladly paint any of our members coaches Newell's or likewise from mild to wild. He has painted buses and Bluebird Wanderlodges in the past.

Hot baby! You could see that coach from a mile away. He did it up! :thumbup: Nice to see a 77 done up.

Don't get me wrong, I really like it, but I think this painter did a more realistic job.

Jon and I can bet he had a hell of a lot more mess to clean up.
