    Timeless Treasures and Alexander Henry make fabric with antique cars. You could fussy cut them and applique to blocks. Here's a link to search. I typed in "antique cars" and "classic cars" and found some under both. Click on the Advanced search and select view thumbnails.

    What about using a picture of one of your Dad's cars? .... would be much more personal, than a generic car quilt!

    Take a look at my cow ... and see if that helps inspire you to how to work with a photo .....

    I just bought a Dakota Collectable embroidery CD titled "Muscle Cars of the 60's and 70's. There is another CD that has car older than that. You culd check there if you have an embroidery machine.
