    Yep, right there on the cover of Esquire magazine. The original Deardorff V8 with factory supplied accessory package. Its no wonder the old timers spent so much time with the cameras... spent the time 'accessorizing' I guess.

    If you look at that picture long enough, you can actually see a camera. :smile:

    Just an average "day in the life" of a Deardorff owner.

    Is air-brushing considered analog or digital? Heck, with enough air-brushing, even I could look that good. Well, maybe not. :D

    I think it somewhat fitting that a Deardorff grace the cover of "Esquire" magazine.

    Didn't they used to have girls on the cover too....:surprised: ?
