It’s been a while since we’ve seen a CC art car. I like the colors on this one and the location couldn’t be more appropriate. 🙂
uuuuuhhhhh no….just no………..really no!!!
The owner overlooked the hubcaps. Most Benzes of this era had matching hubcaps.
I LOVE it!
Jackson Pollock has nothing on this, but maybe that`s the idea.
Wow. The photo is nicely lined up, with the wall pattern driving your eye to the car. Exciting. AGuyinVancouver did a fine job.
Surprising to see a presumably valuable Benz painted up this way. Maybe it got keyed…

I was thinking it looked like the pattern on the wall was radiating out of the top of the car, but it works either way.

That just made me think of the Porsche that Janis Joplin once owned, being a valuable car with a similarly psychedelic paint job. Although in that case the distinctive paint job applied by a famous former owner just makes the car even more valuable.
Valuable is subjective in this case. Come to Iowa, these old basketcase Benzs are a dime a dozen. My friend’s dad bought a complete and pretty clean 6.9 for $1. Yes, one US dollar.
I dig this.
That’s cheaper than canvas.
There’s been one behind the CFA shed in town for a few years now. Presumably the SES guys are going to use it for jaws-of-life practice.
“Hey Beavis, huh-huh; check it out.”
“Heh-Heh, There are, like, all these colors and stuff!”
“Huh-huh, yeah. Huh-huh. . .What are those things on the doors? Huh-huh.”
“Um, they look like mouths, heh-heh, or something, heh-heh.”
“I think I see, like, bananas, huh-huh. Look! Stewart’s dad’s car just pulled in his driveway, huh-huh-huh…Hey Beavis, huh-huh, where’d you put all that spray paint, huh-huh-huh!”
I snapped this today. Not sure if it was an art car or a curbside vinyl wrap in process. But the barely visible (in this photo) spot of orange on the windshield is a tow-away notice so apparently it’s been curbside for a while. Edit: after looking more closely at the photo, I see orange overspray, plus silver overspray on the tires, so not vinyl. Definitely art though.
I suspect that’s a Plastidip spray job. It’s easy to peel off the windows.
Ah, Janis Joplin’s 356!
Janis with her 356.
