A souvenir of his godfather for a cousin
This needs a bit of a backstory. In 1943, my uncle Joachim purchased a 1934 Chevrolet (we think it is the one on the left in a 1942 photo). In 1945 he sold it to my dad and bought a Jawa Perak motorcycle. In 1951 my dad left the old Chevy behind the equipment shed at my grandfather's farm. In 2001 i picked it up and restored it. In 1946 my cousin was born and Joachim became his godfather (while he still owned the Jawa). So I decided to make him a gift which will incorporate a 1:18 scale Jawa and a photo of Joachim on his . The base and backboard will be applewood from my property here and the frame for the photo will be made in original wood from the Chevy.
