Repeat Performance - Radical Renderings
Gerald Martin comes from an artistic household which has given him a lifelong interest in graphic design. Gerald got into the truck-rendering business much in the same way as many other artists by joining the Army right out of high school and becoming part of a M1A1 Abrams Tank crew! After his service in the Armed Forces, he joined the 40-hour-per-week civilian workforce. Gerald did graphical work on the side until he was laid off and became a full-time freelancer creating children’s murals, combat-fighter nose art, some flyer work, and basically, anything he could find. He has since started his own print shop called Revolution Printing in Houston, Texas, and will be displaying a mobile-art gallery titled Gasoline Gallery at Lone Star Throwdown.

Keith Lowry purchased this stunning ’64 Ford F-250 originally for his grandfather who passed away shortly after he came to own it. As a tribute to his grandfather, Keith is going to redo the truck to be a low screamer powered by a 5.0, dropped with a stock floor body drop, 2-inch drop spindles, Slam Specialty ’bags with tubular control arms, Mustang II front IFS, Watts link rear on an Explorer axle with cantilevered Slam ’bags. Paint will be Ford Tuxedo Black with original emblems and chrome with an all-red interior done by Mike Lee at Mr. Scrape Customs in Sumter, South Carolina.
Bought new off the lot by Mark Schaefer back in 2012, this RAM 1500 was a project that was long dreamed about and finally put to the knife. An Ekstensive front setup with raised control arms, wishbone three-link rear, aired up and down by an AccuAir eLevel system with four Viair 480 compressors. Stopping power will come in the form of drilled and slotted rotors. The interior fully lined with black leather with suede inserts and double red stitching is being done by Automotive Restyling in Palestine, Texas. Paint will be the same stock color that came with the truck, Flame Red (PR4). There are plans for a SRT10 Viper motor and transmission.
