Have you ever wondered how automotive treasures are lost? It seems like every 6 months or so someone uncovers a barn of classics covered in dust.
Automotive memorabilia is selling for record prices these days, and if you have ever tried to buy even a vintage cardboard can of oil you know what I mean.Collectors are everywhere and they are scooping up the memories of a generation that valued character over some obscure rating in a magazine. Will the ever be another classic like a Studebaker pickup, or a 50’s Buick? Probably not for the little guy, uniqueness is more a factor of cold hard cash than innovative design these days.But every once in a while, I get reeled back in by something unexpected though. I was talking to a casual acquaintance last night (Alan) and the subject turned to classic style, and how it is fading. Alan mentioned he actually had a fondness for original vintage art. All I knew from before was that he had worked a bit for Snapple in marketing, so I assumed he meant advertising art. He then said “I dabble a bit in painting on my own” and have a few vintage car paintings you can look at.Of course if it had to do with cars you knew I was in on it, so into his studio we went. Below is what Alan had created and had just lying around the studio collecting dust. Had I just found my very own classic car treasure trove on canvas? All I had was my phone so these shots aren't the best but tell me what you think.Hmm… Do I see a vintage Ferrari Daytona in my future?
