Tell me the concept behind your art car.

This is my second car. I don’t drive it every day. Greg Phelps was the inspiration for my car. In 2009, he was in Athens, Ohio. My wife saw and took pictures of his car. I thought it was kind of neat. A year and a half later, I did an art car. I have several themes; the front is my love of hockey. I did music in the back because one of my sons is into music, I like the beach; so, on the doors, I have the beach, then I randomly put freaky things on.

What’s up with it being for sale?

I am trying to downsize. I’m looking towards retirement in 5 to 7 years from now. It might be time for someone else to enjoy it whether they want to keep it the same or alter it.
