Robert "Bob" Diepenbrock

Over the years that I've created Classic Automotive

Portraits, I've met many wonderful owners. Often I

would be invited for a drive or allowed behind the wheel,

and my love affair with classic cars was born.


What I enjoy most about creating these very personal

works of art is capturing and reflecting the passion and

enthusiasm that owners have for their cars.


In 2013 I had the good fortune to acquire a 1936 Auburn 852 Boattail Speedster, and I now enjoy passing along my love of classic cars to others.

The Artists

Cathy "Cat" Beard

As a designer and artist, my love for classic cars springs

from an appreciation for the sweeping lines and beauty

of these rolling works of art.


They're the epitome of "form following function," but also

a reflection of the genius of great designers, such as

Fagoni & Falashi, Saoutchik and Buehrig who transcended

function to create shapes that inspire and lift the spirit.


The image at left shows me in front of "Mavis", my 1936 Mercedes-Benz 500K Special Roadster replica. It's a treat to be driving her and have soccer moms pull up in their vans to ask "what is that lovely car?" I enjoy sharing her with other women who may percieve cars as a "guy thing."
