This piece of art over wheels was made under an idea from Herve Poulain, a French auctioneer and race car driver.
This was the first car from the ART CAR collection, and was one of the last works Alexander Calder produced before his death in 1976.

PS:

1) The race: After seven hours, Calder's BMW retired with a damaged drive shaft and has been an art exhibit ever since.

2) The model : :hot :hot :hot :happy :happy :happy :happy

As you all must know, this is from Minichamps.
I bought this model last year, with a big help from Doctor Luciano :happy

To remove it from the original base requires a big dose of patience... :giggle

And, as Mocking Bird remembered, to put it back on the base requires even MORE patience :giggle :giggle

Yes Gary.
The lights are for the number at the door.

Mockingbird,
You are right, to put it back is a nightmare :pullhair
I glued the plastic pins at the base :giggle

Tks to ALL :happy :happy

And a special thanks to Doctor Luciano, who had the opportunity to be the first one to open his box... :giggle
:cheers :cheers
