1956 Chevy Bel Air – Classic Car Canvas Print by Mark Tisdale.
This classic car canvas print features a two tone blue 1956 Chevy Bel Air. It’s depicted on the streets of a city at night with a colorful cast of colors reflecting on the metal and glass of that classic Chevrolet.
I’m perhaps not a traditional fan of classic cars. I don’t know the ins and outs of their motors, etc. But I do love the style of those classics – you can see the dawning jet age in all those details can’t you! The design of these classic cars were artwork unto themselves.
Today’s cars by comparison all look so much alike. There’s some irony in that. The Classic Chevy and its brethren were inspired by the dawn of the jet age. Everything looked sleek and aerodynamic. Today’s cars have been wind tunnel tested and designed for maximum efficiency and that pretty much makes them all look the same. Aerodynamics doesn’t care if you’re a Chevy or a Ford!
And I have a personal fondness for classic Chevy cars. I grew up hearing about them from my Mom whose father, who owned a string of Chevy cars during his lifetime – he spent 46 years as a rural mail carrier and traded cars every two years. So, I look at these classic 1950’s cars and remember the stories I heard about my Mom’s childhood.
