Piece description from the artist

OLDSMOBILE is the final painting in the CHASSIS Series. This painting is dedicated to a moment in time. It was 1966 and we were once again cruising "E" Street in San Bernardino, CA. As we were driving North in the bad, black '57 Chevy Bel Air, we felt confident we could take just about any and all challengers. Up next to us comes a beat up and dirty, big, heavy '55 Super 88 Oldsmobile with a 324 Rocket V8. This will be a cake walk we thought. He is to heavy to race. Heading North and picking up speed into to maybe the 50 mph range, we flew through the neighbor hoods. The guy in the Oldsmobile stayed next to us and just smiled. Flying past Marshall Blvd. up around Little Mountain we were now going East on Kendall Drive and picking up speed to 80mph Then it happened. I think the saying is "he just walked away from us". All we saw were his tail lights at around 100 mph plus, like greased lightening. Nobody in our car said a word, but we knew something absolutely phenomenal just happened. It was clear he came from another planet and then was forever gone.
