Story of a wagon

dr_dodge Sunday, 9/3/2023

My first attempt at a story
(a different type of build thread)

crappy cell phone format,

as we recover what ends up being a '59 chevy

that apparently was used in a wild west hrill show,

and the doors are welded, no floorboards

and there is a huge reinforced hole in the roof

that'll be a challenge

Happy Lador Day Weekend

so,  I'd like to give a challenge to everyone!

The model I used to shoot this on is one I made for an on line competition that went nowhere, so bummed,  but I dug it out, and...

that changes now, it has a new life!!!!

Big Problem!! nothing has a name, other than the cannery, and it's called "cannery"

The cannery gave me the car

The Cannery has NO NAME

Gotta fix that

Thats the First Challenge,

throw me some names, if your name is the best, it will be forever named that, and credit you

Signage and all.......

so, important backstory

the (big) cannery is below a huge lake (un named, the way)
and they can the produce from the valley below,

but also make pickled fish, sauerkaut, and vinigar,

Imagine the smell, and it could be a great dry joke name

they also handle wine and other distiled beverages

I'll dig some cars out to send the winner!

"a different kind of build thread"

I' ll decide winner by y'all comments by friday, If anyone want to play


Big Tuna...

Excellent back story!

Well, there's always Cannery Row (which is a real name and would fit). ToonaPhishery Canning

Since there's alcohol there, you could do Fish N Schlitz, or use that for the local pub. The Tipsy Flounder -"Come in and get pickled!" 

As for the lake... Lake Kukamunga is always a fun one. Fischdärme See ("Fish Guts Lake" in German), Lake Stinkapoo....

  • those are pretty good, lake stinkapoo! funny — dr_dodge
