Classic Car-Themed Album Cover #13

Released in 1999, this critically acclaimed album skyrocketed Eminem's career - making him a household name even if you didn't listen to rap. But that's not why it made it on our blog,  it's because of the Monte Carlo, of course (and I like the cover)! Michael currently does not have any paintings featuring that beast of an automobile, but as I tell all those who ask ... have patience. His style is unique and very time consuming. With only 3-4 paintings released per year, it make take a while. — Linda  (Eminem - The Slim Shady LP):

Classic Car-Themed Album Cover #12

Truthfully, before I got into this looking for cool car featuring album covers, I'd never even heard of this particular band. According to Wikipedia, this album has a more rock-oriented sound than Earth's earlier drone doom work (probably aging myself, but not familiar with that genre). Anyhow, this one definitely does not reflect my (or Michael's) taste in music, however, unarguably, featuring Plymouth's 1970 Cuda, this is one cool album cover! Add to that it's Sublime Green (one of our company colors) and this striking cover just had to be included :) — Linda  (Earth - Pentastar: In the Style of Demons)

Classic Car-Themed Album Cover #11

Originally optainable for about $2700 new, today a totally restored 1971 Duster 340's value hovers around $24,000 (according to Hagerty), however we have seen them sell for $30-$40k . But way, way back in 1984, this Plymouth was not considered a collector car. It was, however, cool enough to make it on one of the aptly named, "The Cars", album covers. As Michael and I were both teenagers in the late '70s and early '80s (and who didn't listen to their music), I felt this cover had to be included.  — Linda   (The Cars - Heartbeat City):
