The Ferrari Dino was named after Alfredo “Dino” Ferrari (son of Enzo Ferrari) who died in 1956 from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy aged only 24. Today, 60 years later, there is still no cure for this disease. A few years ago a 1973 Ferrari Dino 246 GT-Euro was found in a barn in California. It is currently being restored in a project to raise awareness about the disease and money to fight it. The Dino bas-relief depicts this car mid-reconstruction.

Airstream R.V. 

Airstream is a brand of luxury travel trailers and motorhomes manufactured in Jackson Center, Ohio, USA. The company is the oldest in the industry. Airstream trailers are easily recognized by the distinctive rounded shape of their aluminum bodies. This shape dates back to the 1930s and is based on designs created by William Hawley Bowlus. Bowlus was also the chief designer of Charles Lindbergh’s aircraft, the ‘Spirit of St. Louis’.

Bas-relief in salvaged wood #78, 267 x 112 x 16cm.
Concordia Collection, Rotterdam, Netherlands.

World famous auto racer Hans Stuck persuaded Mercedes-Benz to build him a car for an attempt on the world land speed record. The project, officially sanctioned by Hitler himself, started in 1937. Designer Dr. Ferdinand Porsche targeted a speed of 465 mph. But the car was fated never to run at this velocity. And in fact no car with a conventional engine ever did. Hans Stuck would have driven the T80 over a special stretch of the Dessau Autobahn. The attempt was set for the January 1940 ‘Rekord Woche’, but the outbreak of WWII intervened; the event was cancelled and the T80 garaged. It took until 1964 for Art Alfons to surpass the T80’s target speed when he reached 544 mph in the turbojet-powered ‘Green Monster’.

Limo 1

The 1984 Cadillac Fleetwood Seventy Five was the Presidential Limousine used by President Ronald Reagan.

“After decades of Lincolns, Cadillac was finally given the chance to produce a limousine for the secret service in the early 1980s during the Reagan administration. Appearing in 1984 was a pair of 1983 Fleetwoods built by Hess & Eisenhardt. Since the coachbuilder started with production Fleetwood limousines, the cars were stretched only 17 inches and their roofs raised three inches. Power for both came from Cadillacs own massive 500 cubic-inch V8. Though awkward in appearance, the Fleetwoods provided excellent visibility for the president. Large greenhouses were made possible by the development of 2 3/8ths inch think bulletproof glass and powerful air conditioning systems that kept the cabin cool.” (source)

The Peekskill Meteorite Car

The Peekskill meteorite struck a parked 1980 red Chevy Malibu in Peekskill, New York in the early evening of October 9th, 1992. When it struck Earth, the meteorite weighed 26 pounds and measured a foot in diameter.
The event was witnessed by thousands across the East Coast. Because it was a Friday evening, its descent was captured on video by many high school football fans taping local games. The multiple perspectives gave scientists the ability to calculate the meteorite’s exact flight path to Earth.
