Jewel Box art car arrives!

We’re thrilled to announce that the fabulous Jewel Box car has arrived at Art Car World! If it’s been a while since you’ve seen Wild Wheels, pull out your copy of the DVD and watch the segment about Jay Battenfield (or read about it in the Wild Wheels book). It’s a heartwrenching story. But the ultimate result was this beautiful and priceless art car. The late Mr. Battenfield’s estate donated it to Art Car World in 2010, and it arrived here from Amarillo, Texas, on March 31, 2011. Harrod says when he was filming the car for Wild Wheels all those years ago, he never imagined that it might someday end up under his own care. It needs some cleanup and restoration, but we look forward to having it on display eventually.
