​Classic Car Picture Commissions

A portrait of ​​your ​​favourite ​classic ​​car

​​An illustration of a ​favourite classic car or racing car can ​make a great present. ​Classic car portraits ​are produced as a print or number of prints. The cost to produce the illustration depends on complexity of the subject. An image could be of a static car with no background, the car might be shown in a setting or scene or in-action among other cars like examples shown on this site.

Prints are produced as Giclée* fine art prints, reproduced on a lightly textured heavy paper. The prints are signed by the artist, Steve Goodwin.

Pop Art Prints

If you are looking for something a bit different, how about a Pop Art print of your car. You can commission a portrait of your car which is then produced in the Pop Art style, made popular in the 1950s.

Greetings Cards

In addition to prints of your car you might also like to order a pack of greetings cards for you to send to friends and family.

​Personalised greeting cards at a price better than shop bought cards.

​Greetings Cards Available to Buy in Shops
Many of our illustrations are available to buy in shops. We currently supply illustrations to UK Greetings and Woodmansterne (Millbank range). Cards are available in WH Smith, Sainsburys and many other shops.


If you show your car you might also consider postcards. A run of postcards with the illustration of your car on the front is a great give-away to those interested in your car. For added interest you could also include information on the reverse, details and specifications, history of the car or the work you have carried out on it.
