Some artists are clearly car guys and it comes across in the work. Then, there is the guy that painted this wrecking yard gate in Sun Valley, California. The manifold bolts right to the tops of the valve covers, 6 exhaust ports per side, a couple mystery knobs under that, a timing cover that looks like a bullseye but it is the fuel injector stacks and the black gloved engine hustler that really carry the painting. Also, note that his feet look like some sort of oil slick flipper. I may have to steal the whole gate.
