"Twilight "Lime Fire"......A.Croner & Jim St.Clair's Barracuda Funny Car.... Drag Racing Art

The Art Of David Carl Peters

$ 25.00

Limited-Edition Print of 350 (13x19) Signed and numbered by the Artist.
In 1967 J.A.Croner and Jim St.Clair built this awesome Barracuda Funny Car Match racer...The stock wheelbase, and all the original chrome trim, made the car a real "Sleeper" in appearance,,, but this screaming Cuda was far from that...Claire Sanders handled the driving chores, as he is seen here doing burnout in the twilight....
This painting certainly is one of my more "impressionistic" images, and is not a very detailed version of the car. (I did this a few years ago as an experiment to see how fast I could paint..)  Also I wanted to make this piece reminiscent of all those psychedelic posters of the day, as I tried to capture the surrealistic atmosphere of 67...I can still smell the burning rubber....
