Golden Dream - Rolls Royce With a Hemi Engine

Golden Dream - Rolls Royce With a Hemi Engine - Art Car Central
Golden Dream Rolls Royce with Hemmy - by Ivan Mitev Photography

I stumbled upon this ostentatious golden beauty tonight and had to put it up on art car central. Not only is it a Rolls-Royce covered in gold but its got a Hemi engine of epic proportions. This vintage 1970 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow had an "ordinary" 6.75-liter V8 swapped out for a 592 Hemi, complete with dual-stage nitrous system for a reported output of over 1,000 horsepower. The chrome engine that pops out of the hood might not be the Queens car since it take away from the usually-dominant classic grille, but the hand stitched leather-covered roll cage is both classy and safe at high speeds.

One of the Biggest Pink Colored Freighter Ships on Earth - Contship Germany

I think I found one the biggest pink colored freighter ships on earth called the "Contship Germany" owned by The CONTI-Group, one of the world's leading managing owners of container vessels and tankers. That's a whole lot of pink paint if you ask me but I think its just a starting point for what could be a beautiful art ship. They probably should call on Emily Duffy creator of the Vain Van Art Car about putting on the finishing touches on this transatlantic beauty and then reposting it here on art car central.

Same room, painted with different colors.
Walls: Sharkskin, Ceiling: Wythe Blue, Trim: Battenberg, Stenciling: Fresh Olive

LOVE this color palette!


Both Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore are moving more towards earthy tones for 2012, which some of you might be grateful for if you’re not the Tangerine Tango type of person. These colors are definitely more my style. Smile What about you?

Have a happy Monday and great week!  Hopefully most of you have today off?
