Default Art involving Vintage / Classic cars and bikes.

I could not find a thread with pictures of art involving Vintage and classic cars and bikes. Hence I am opening one here. Please post pictures of paintings, sculpture and artistic mods here.


Lorenzo Quinn's "Vroom Vroom" sculpture arrives in central London !

Ever get the feeling that your car is little more than an oversized toy? Lorenzo Quinn evidently did. The sculptor took the very first car he ever bought an original Fiat 500 and transformed it into the public display of art you see here.

The installation piece features a four-meter-tall child's hand and forearm, modeled after that of his own son and crafted out of aluminum, grabbing the Fiat like a giant kid playing with a toy car.

After being displayed in Abu Dhabi and Valencia, Spain, the sculpture has now been installed on Park Lane, a swanky stretch of road in central London characterized by a number of five-star hotels and high-end automobile dealerships. This certainly ought to put things into perspective for the next noble gentleman shopping for a new motor car.

The next set of pictures is the work of James Corbett. He has been sculpting since 1999 in Australia and gets most of his inspiration from things he loves the most, especially classic cars.
