April 1964, Jack Goodman, owner of Clarence Dixon Cadillac in Hollywood California, ordered the only Cheetah to ever to be built and raced with a Heavy-Duty Corvette 427ci L88, aluminum head racing engine.
In June 2016, I recreated the original hand-lettering on the same Cheetah with a handful of original images given to me by Bob of BTM who was restoring the Cheetah. From those photos and doing a bit of my own research I was able to get the correct scale and lettering style to match the Cheetah as it raced with the number 33. Although the lettering might look a little better than it did as does the silver paint. This body has one of the smoothest laid silver metallic paint jobs I’ve seen and over fiberglass no less, cheers to Dave Rose.
This Saturday, January 21st 2017 the Cheetah is going to be auctioned at the famed Barrett Jackson in Scottsdale, Arizona. Could this one of a kind Cobra Killer bring seven figures? I can’t wait to see!

USA Speedskaters with Pinstriped Suits

20140219-101631.jpg

If you hadn’t noticed yet, at the 2014 Olympics this year in Sochi, US speedskaters are sporting new high-tech suits created by two companies, Under Armour and Lockheed Martin, which feature some very bold pinstriping. In the search to create the world’s fasted suit somebody decided that nothing was more American than “flat” black and hotrod pinstriping!

Very Limited BEARCAT Print

ATTENTION!! The Jens Meyerhoff Grumman F8F Bearcat illustration has just been reproduced in a very limited edition print! This is the very first time that I have had any piece of art reproduced and wanted it to be something special. Only 5 of these where reproduced paying particular attention to the detail and reproduction of the original especially the custom mixed greenish-blue Navy color that made the original so special. Don’t hesitate on this one folks because I will NOT be making any other print runs of this Illustration in the future. This is it!
