Custom Car Art Prints and Wall Photos




To help support the Custom Car Chronicle site we are now offering a new series of Art Prints of some very famous Custom Car Photos. From small size prints to floor to ceiling size Wall Art.


I have received quite a few request for wall size posters for the famous 1954 Thrifty parking lot car show photo that I colorized many years ago. We have had them available as photo poster for a few years, but some people would like to have them floor to ceiling size in their home or garage. Well good news for those people, they are now available for our new shop.

I have been searching for a good place to offer these Huge Wall posters as well as some good quality Art Prints of some of the other colorized photos as well as regular Iconic Custom Car photos for some time. Recently I was told about the great products and service from Society6. This is an business that produces good quality Printed Art and offers an individual online shop for customers, perfect for the product of the Custom Car Chronicle. A perfect way to help support the Custom Car Chronicle site.


One of their great products are what they call Wall Murals, Huge 8 x 8 feet, or 12 x 8 feet Photo prints divided in 4 or 6 rolls of self-adhesive rolls. Which was perfect for what I planned to do with the Thrifty Parking Lot Custom Car Show photo.



I have created a few Iconic Custom Car images that are now available from our new shop. At this moment we offer 4 types of prints:

1-Art Prints: Available in five sizes, from mini to x-large, Gallery quality Giclée print, Natural white, matte, ultra smooth background, 100% cotton, acid and lignin-free archival paper, Epson K3 archival inks for high-quality print.

Available in six sizes, in walnut, pecan or natural colors. Natural white, matte, 100% cotton rag, acid and lignin-free archival paper. Solid wood frame dimensions: 0.75” (W) x 1.25” (Depth).

Below are the Iconic Custom Car Images that are now available at our new Society6 Shop, some of these are available as Art Prints all the way up to Wall Murals, while others did not work on Canvas or the super large Wall Mural and are only available as Art-Prints.

If there are any images you would like to see part of this series, drop us an email, and we will see what we can do.

Special Note
These posters are manufactured in the USA and also shipped from the USA. At this point I’m testing the waters and see if there is enough demand for these Huge Posters, as well as the new art prints. If there is, then I will also see if I can create similar products in Europe for the European customers. Until then, these prints available for Word Wide Shipping, but keep in mind that there might be an additional import tax when ordering outside the US.
