We are pleased to announce David Snyder, acclaimed artist and long time supporter of the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show, has been named the Official Featured Artist for the 2014 show. David started drawing cars, airplanes and trains at the age of six, and his passion for transportation history continues to this day. A graduate of the Central Academy of Commercial Art in Cincinnati, Ohio, David had a successful career in advertising as a designer, art director and illustrator that left him yearning to paint the transportation history he remembered from his youth. Eventually, this would open the door to the world of transportation art, David’s true passion. After creating some very significant award winning art in 1998 for the Lionel Train Company Heritage Catalog, his life would change. After seeing his work, a publisher in Canada asked if he could paint automotive subjects, and the rest as they say, is history!

In addition to over 100 Limited Edition prints, (over half of which are now sold out), David has created a incredibly diverse portfolio that includes a wide variety of automotive and petroliana art in beautiful settings that truly take you back in time, and even a gorgeous piece featuring the Fender Stratocaster guitar, (which you will see hanging above my drum set!) And speaking of guitars, David recently teamed up with MCACN Title Sponsor, The Mecum Auction Company, along with the Gibson guitar company and the "Curing Kids Cancer" program to raise a record setting $105,000 with a winning bid for the one-off custom Les Paul that was painted by David. There wasn’t a dry eye on the block at the Indy Mecum Auction a few weeks ago when the hammer fell! This is just another example of David Snyder’s passion, talent and generosity. And that’s not all...Car Art by David Snyder is also an Official Sponsor of the MCACN show. On Saturday, November 22, David will be presenting his exclusive Eye Candy Award. Choosing his personal overall favorite from our show floor, the winner will be going home with their own unique award, created by David Snyder. Past winners include Ken Nagel with his outstanding 1960 Chrysler 300 F convertible and last year it was Bill Winkle with his 1969 Hemi Charger 500, (restored by The Finer Details).
