DescriptionA French-Italian collaboration resulted in the astounding Citroen-Maserati SM of 1972-73. It was an engineering and styling tour-de-force. A Maserati engine. The world-famous Citroen suspension. Amazing style. Just as the auto industry was entering its government-mandated darkest decade ever with emission-controlled starved engines and God-forsaken 5mph bumpers, Europe gave us this once-in-a-lifetime glimpse of what could have been the automotive future.
Gordon Summer, San Diego Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement I'm really an ad guy . . . more of a marketing type. But I love cars. Used to collect 'em. But made the decision to go urban 15 years ago, and a high-rise in a city ain't no place to keep a car collection. So they're gone. I like to say I've bought and sold maybe $3 or $4 million worth of great cars over the years . . . for a grand total of $116,000.
Anyway, now I take photos of classics, sports, exotics, muscle cars, and misc. special interest autos, manipulate 'em digitally, and do giclee prints. They take up so much less space, and don't drip anything on the floor!
