This Speedster is the continuation of a 40 year "love affair" that began when the artist was painting portraits of classic automobiles for private owners while attending college in the Los Angeles area.
I'll never forget my first Auburn Boattail Speedster, it was love at first sight. I thought it was the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen, I never dreamed I'd be lucky enough to own one.
I couldn't afford an original Speedster, so I decided on a replica. I searched for over 15 years, and test drove various replicas, but was never satisfied. Then I found a listing on E-Bay, surprisingly the Speedster was in nearby Scottsdale. As soon as I saw the car, I knew it was rare and special. The original hood, accurate functioning exhaust pipes, interior, steering wheel, gauges and dash were all genuine Auburn.
My wife and I continue to enjoy sharing our Speedster with other owners and enthusiasts, she draws admiring stares and makes friends wherever we take her. This beauty is the main reason I started my Classic Automobile Portraits again.
This 3 view Digital Portrait features 3/4, front, rear and profile views to display the "star quality" of one of the most beautiful automobiles ever made.
