not sure about a painting. You could get a digital image of one printed to canvas? I know metro imaging in London do it (www.metroimaging.co.uk).

No idea otherwise!

Once again I go back to my old mates in Johannesburg South Africa - Venom Cars. They have an artist who for 3000 rand (around 300 Gb pounds) will paint an oil on canvas from a photo. He can also race it up a bit by adding a track or background to suit. Detail is superb on approx 300x200mm canvas.

Hi Max - a couple of websites are www.motoringartist.com and www.carsart.com. As mentioned by Lutman a commission is also a good way of getting exactly what you want see www.atomichighboy.com (not on canvas but really good stuff); I've a really good picture of my '64 convertible mustang done by Chris for my big 40. He has also done a number of t-shirt designs over the years for our local rod run, a great guy.
