Description This is the grille of a limited-edition 1953 Packard Caribbean, one of the most beautiful automobiles of the early fifties. Caribbeans were custom-built from 1953-1956, with a major change in body style, engine and suspension midway through the run. Both the first and second series of this model are among the most cherished collector cars of all time.
Gordon Summer, San Diego Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement I'm really an ad guy . . . more of a marketing type. But I love cars. Used to collect 'em. But made the decision to go urban 15 years ago, and a high-rise in a city ain't no place to keep a car collection. So they're gone. I like to say I've bought and sold maybe $3 or $4 million worth of great cars over the years . . . for a grand total of $116,000.
Anyway, now I take photos of classics, sports, exotics, muscle cars, and misc. special interest autos, manipulate 'em digitally, and do giclee prints. They take up so much less space, and don't drip anything on the floor!
