Rev up the man cave with vintage automotive prints


Hankering to hop up the man cave? Whether you’re looking to polish the den, beef up the basement, or bolt on some style to the garage, automotive wall art brings the thrill of racing to the walls faster than you can say, “Gentlemen, start your engines!” 

When Carrera Toys needed to decorate their North American headquarters not long ago, they turned to FramedArt.com’s growing collection of automotive artwork. Carrera selected two of Ray Foster’s marvelous muscle-era prints — Going West and Ventura Freeway — as well as a dramatic trio of European-styled prints by KC Haxton. 

Carrera Toys is a legendary European slot car brand, with roots that date back to the early 1960s. As luck would have it, Carrera Toys’ American HQ is a short sprint from FramedArt.com in nearby Monmouth Junction, just north of Princeton. The company’s warehouse and factory brims with prints and technology. Their archives contain both traditional limited production lithographic prints and scalable digital images, which can be printed in a range of sizes.

While Henry Ford famously said “any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants — so long as it is black,” FramedArt.com takes the opposite approach. It’s all about customization, with a wide variety of framing and matting options to compliment any decor. The website’s online configurator allows up to three layers of matting for maximum impact. All of the artwork is available as canvas prints, as well.

FramedArt’s collection of automotive prints features convenient categories, with a broad selection of manufacturers and genres. There are retro race car black and white photos, old-school advertisements and vintage racing prints.
