For SEMA 2022 it’s a 1970 Chevelle Convertible named “Sapphire” in the Hertz Kompressoren space. Completely rebuilt from top to bottom, the custom paint job speaks to the ’70 Chevelle’s body lines. Ryan used ten different shades of blue to pay homage to the vehicle owner’s beach lifestyle, and to the SS’s factory-inspired stripes. Look closely and you’re immersed in the details, although ever-so-subtlety, which is something Ryan is known for; he buried water drops in the stripes to mimic morning dew when oceanside, and he created a coral detail using a texturing technique.
