Cars Yeah with Mark Greene

Cheryl Kelley is an artist who was classically trained in oil paint and has taken her passion and love of cars, muscle cars, and put her own stamp on the subject matter. She started painting at the age of ten and grew up in the formative 60s. She often paints on aluminum that plays well to the reflections on the surfaces of automobiles allowing the viewer to go deeper and to see something more in the form. The quality and mystery of these reflections take the viewer out of the mundane and in to a dream world. The nostalgia of the American dream along with cars makes her art unique and Cheryl adds her own feminine stamp on the subject matter taking the beauty of the object and going beyond the surface.

Bryan Davis is the Founder of the Malaise Motors Facebook group, 6,000 members strong and growing.  Malaise Motors is dedicated to the history, design, manufacture, and roadability of the unloved cars of the Malaise era that began in 1972 and ended in 1995. The groups seats are button tufted, roofs landau, and they roll on the shiniest genuine wire wheel covers available. The 1972 model years were hit with a drop in compression ratios and switched to net horsepower rating in preparation for upcoming emissions regulations. In 1996 OBDII diagnostic electronics came to play ending the Malaise era. When not managing Malaise Motors he is a realtor and property manager who enjoys driving classic Jaguar limousines.
