Burned '66 Chevelle painting...

Did some of you guys see this? : LINK: https://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/enth...gnout#image=19

There are several paintings but the last one is of a '66 Chevelle…

Re: Burned '66 Chevelle painting...

Are those paintings? The article makes it seem like they are photos.

Re: Burned '66 Chevelle painting...

Those aren’t paintings.

Several people know, including one very good friend, lost everything in those fires. He lost his high school car, a 10 second 5.0 Mustang street car, when the fire swept through his neighborhood. He said they were lucky to get out. He sent me some pictures of his car, burned to a crisp, in what used to be his garage. It was so hot the aluminum heads melted, same with the rims on his car, and his truck parked in the driveway. He doesn’t like seeing pictures of his car, or what was destroyed by the fire. There is nothing left of anything they owned that they didn’t take with them that night. I don’t think he”d appreciate someone profit from his loss, even if it was in the name of art. No matter how well they say their intentions are. These are artistic shots, but who are they meant for, likely the casual rubberneckers.

I have several friends that are firefighters and cops that worked the area during and shortly after the fire. The locals weren’t pleased when interlopers tried to come in on sightseeing excursions. My cop friends were more than happy to oblige the locals and send outsiders away.

Sorry guys, I thought they were paintings… It now makes me feel bad for those who lost everything, including some vintage cars in the fires…

You shouldn’t feel bad.

It’s not you that turned other people’s loss into “art”. The thing that annoys me is that the photographers would have gone into these peoples property, shortly after the fires had burned through, probably without permission of the homeowners.

Re: Burned '66 Chevelle painting...

I worked with this guy and then he went on into management. Great guy. I even worked for him in the department he was in charge of for a while. And then this happens. https://www.nbclosangeles.com/multim...462369093.html He owned Harley's as well as nice cars and trucks. Everything gone save for the clothes on his back and the car he went to work in that day.

Ideas are like children: there are none so wonderful as your own.

Re: Burned '66 Chevelle painting...

I lost my house in CA wildfire back in '07. There was so much ash it piled up like snow drifts. It's devastating to lose everything at once. I truly empathize with these people. The photographer should donate the proceeds to the victims.

Looks like the art was done to raise money for those still struggling in the aftermath. Nice photos, unfortunate event.

Agree...

Let this be a lesson guys.. when a flood or fire is a few miles away, load all the good stuff into that hotrod and get it out of there.

I know we sometimes idolize our cars, but I would have rather loaded it up with boxes, rip the interior and scratch the paint than see that kind of damage.

There are pictures of catastrophes every day on TV and on the net and it doesn't cost anything to look at them. I don't see how they could be called art.
How could folks that lost stuff get any money from us looking at free pictures?
