When some people look at a car all they see is a mode of transportation. But for a custom car painter they don’t just see a car, they see a blank canvas for them to work on. For these painters if cars are their canvases then events like the Grand National Roadster Show are their exhibitions.

Walking through the halls of the Pomona Fairplex we were blown away by the hundreds of vehicles on display, featuring paintjobs by artists like Bugs Auto Art and Danny D.

Unfortunately, we know not everyone was able to make it to this year’s Grand National Roadster Show, which is why we compiled this collection of some of our favorite paintjobs. From pinstripes and fine lines to gold leafing and airbrushed murals, the artwork on some of these cars is almost hypnotizing to look at.
