CHIP FOOSE AT DISNEY'S D23 EXPO; APPEARANCE 8/9 5-7pm
August 7, 2013

Chip Foose has created a custom art piece, incorporating an old Autopia body shell, which will be available during Disney's D23 Expo Silent Auction on August 10th.
 
Chip has been looking to get his hands on an old Autopia vehicle ever since he first saw a few on the Disney backlot during his time working on the CarsLand expansion.  Once he asked Disney they were more than happy to offer up two Mark VII edition shells and allow him to go wild.  Inspired by the original Lightning McQueen oil painting he completed a few years back, Chip set out to create a one-of-a-kind piece of wall art with some dimension.  Using approximately 1/2 of the body (featuring a custom paint job of course) and custom Foose wheels, Chip mounted the ride on a background reflective of the old Autopia marquee.  A custom frame that measures nearly 10' x 5' encompasses the piece.  This beautiful piece of wall art can be displayed most anywhere, if you've got the room!
 
It can also be yours as Disney has include this lot in their 2013 D23 Expo Silent Auction.  This item will cross the auction block sometime between 8:30pm and 10pm on Saturday, August 10th.  I've also heard there might be a few extra personal Foose items included in the lot as well.
 
Since Chip can not be there the night of the 10th due to a prior engagement, he has chosen to be on hand at the D23 Expo event on Friday, August 9th from 5-7pm.  Whether you're a potential bidder or just a fan of Foose Design, Chip will appear next to the display of his piece to answer any questions you may have on the lot or his work.
 
We hope you like the piece, everyone at Foose Design sure does.
