See it and 100s of other unusual photos in our “Out of the Box” section on The Old Motor.   #classic cars

A Roaring Twenties Buick Snowmobile Conversion: We have covered a number of early snowmobile conversions this winter but now this mystery machine appears that is based on a circa 1926 Buick. See all of the others and help us identify this one on The Old Motor.  #classic cars

From the earliest days of motoring, advertising was the primary venue for auto-related art. Accomplished painters like Peter Helck produced some very high quality work from the 1920′s through the 1940′s but for the most part the fine art community considered such stuff mere illustration. However, in recent years, the genre has come into it’s own, due in no small part to the efforts of the Automotive Fine Arts Society.
We are very happy to be able present some beautiful examples of their work here today. Be sure to check out the Societies members work at the exhibit at the upcoming Pebble Beach Concours and next year at the Amelia Island Concours. See much more of their work on The Old Motor.
