Welcome to my writer's den, home of a real artist, lover of of life, and all good people, places, and history. Thank you for being here.

How Cool Is Your Car?

The coolest cars ever range from relics of the past to prototype cars of the future. They are the OOAKs (one of a kinds) Automobiles, Limited Editions, and unique mobile devices.

To me, the coolest cars ever are referred to as, "The Art Cars." Below are a few videos and photos of some of the things you can do with a car that you may never thought of.

Today's art car goes beyond the norm of the bells and whistles of the super cars like the talking Kit, the flying Herbie, or the Jetson's shuttle. Today's art cars are usually custom built by an artist with a passion. There are art cars that include portable domiciles. The bodies can be left in tact, or resculpted, rewelded, or rebuilt.

The automobile is a durable means of transportation, but when an artist gets an urge to dress it up, the results can be incredible. One can easily spend an afternoon learning about the vehicles, the art, and different venues which they are displayed. Below area few of my favorite links to the coolest art car information.

"The '75 Cadillac De Ville Goes Out Kicking and Screaming"

About My Cadillac Art Car: The car you see above is an illustration of my spouse's beloved '75 Cadillac DeVille. The wonderful land yacht was parked beside our driveway for so many years that the earth was trying to swallow it. When the spouse called the tow truck last month, I got out the camera. As the tow truck pulled the car out of the yard the frame cracked, the bottom began to fall out into the street, and this De Ville went out kicking and screaming. Once the household got over the loss, I began drawing.

If you or someone you know would like a custom art car ready to hang, please drop me a line. Affordably priced, and in a small format size (original art approximately 8 x 10), with or without a frame. A custom made art car created from your photograph may be hand drawn or painted, and is an excellent gift for for someone who appreciates their car. I can also do a portrait of someone standing by or sitting in their favorite car, as well. My auto shop is open for business. Inquiries are welcome.

Thank you for visiting The Coolest Cars Ever.

      I love to look at art cars. I've had the chance to ride in a few at Burning Man. It's incredible how much time and devotion one has to put into an art car to make it outstanding. And then there's the storage of the vehicle. It's definitely something that is a luxury to be able to do.

      Ah, sometimes I felt that I drove an art car as I put so much moola into it, you know? Living in Florida, I could see me driving an art car for sure!

      I traded my last car in for an SUV. One day I hope to have a small car or a vintage mustang!
