Chevy Camaro Is a Rolling Work of Art that Supports Veterans

Chevy Camaro

Amazing hand-painted Camaro heads to auction to benefit Wounded Warrior Project.

If there’s one thing we can probably all agree on, it’s the fact that we simply don’t do enough to honor and take care of our nation’s veterans. But you certainly can’t fault people for trying. Fortunately, at virtually every major auction we find at least one or two vehicles donated with 100% of the proceeds going to help our vets in need. At this year’s upcoming Mecum Las Vegas auction, taking place Nov. 15-17, one of those vehicles is something truly special. And it’s this amazing 2010 Chevy Camaro.

These days, most cars sporting this sort of incredible artwork are simply wrapped. But this Camaro wears some of the most incredibly detailed airbrush work you’ll ever see. Laid down by the hands of renowned artist Mickey Harris, it’s truly an awe-inspiring piece that salutes each branch of the military.

On the front driver’s side, you’ll find Navy livery. The Marines flank the front passenger side, the Air Force is present on the rear passenger side, and the Coast Guard takes up space on the trunk. But this all-encompassing military tribute doesn’t stop there. On the driver’s side, you’ll find the Distinguished Service Cross, Silver Star, and Afghanistan Campaign medal. On the passenger side, the Navy Cross, Bronze Star, and Iraq Campaign medal.

All together, this amazing piece of Camaro art is equal parts stunning and touching. Even better, 100% of the proceeds from its sale reportedly go to the Wounded Warrior Project, which provides a host of services to vets, including helping these brave folks reintegrate into society following injuries and the traumas of war.

We certainly salute those folks, but we also want to give a special nod to the man who donated this Camaro to help them. Even if you don’t have the means to bid and buy it, head over here to find out how you can donate to help the heroes in your town.
