1971 Mercury Cyclone At Union 76 (Painting) by FastLaneIllustration 1971 Mercury Cyclone At Union 76 (Painting) by FastLaneIllustration
Here's My Latest Piece. It's a painting of perhaps one of the most underrated muscle cars of all time: the 1971 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler. I mean you can't argue with that aggressive styling, and potent 429 V8 under the hood. Anyway, The scene is situated in the year 1971 at a Union 76 gas station in the style of 60s modernist, or "googie" architecture. I always loved that style of gas station, and relish the handful of them that are still around. on a separate note, take a look at those gas prices! I researched the cost of gas in the year 1971, and it calculates to about $1.65 per gallon in today's prices! anyway, all Fast Lane Design Artwork By Ryan Sardachuk

Another masterpiece! I completely agree about this being one of the most underappreciated of the muscle cars.
