A 1952 Ford F-1 & Pro Touring Chevy Truck - Radical Renderings
If it wasn’t for the gentle nudge of his wife, Eric Brockmeyer would never have gotten into industrial design, nor would he have had the opportunity to grace these pages with his talented work. After making the jump from the boat world to the vehicle world, Eric has gone on to create designs for Boyd Coddington, Johnson’s Hot Rod Shop, Popular Hot Rodding magazine, Street Rodder magazine, and the Roadster Shop, just to name a few. His love for vehicle design comes through in his creativity and attention to detail with these two amazing renderings. Check out Eric’s work at www.brockmeyerdesigns.com.
