Vintage car rental company Vintage Car Rental has teamed up with local artist Joe Nesbit to paint a unique car that will be displayed in a museum in the Bronx.
The mural in front of the Brooklyn Museum will be dedicated to the life of Louis Renault, who was one of the first people to live in New York City, but he died in 1867.
His body was discovered at the bottom of a ravine in Manhattan’s East River in 1873.
It is one of hundreds of murals that have been painted in his memory, with many featuring portraits of friends, family and admirers.
Vintage Car Rrentals owner Joe Neesbit says the mural will be part of the museum’s collection of cars and other objects from the 1930s through the 1960s.
Neesbits family owned and operated the company for more than a century and has painted more than 20,000 cars since the 1940s.
The car was inspired by the old style of car rentals in the ’30s, when people could rent a car and take it to a nearby location for a week or two, with a fixed price.
When they returned, the car was usually full of items that they needed, such as food, clothes and furniture.
The art team painted the car in the 1930’s, and it has since been featured in museums across the country.
The New York Times reports that Nesbits family has also owned an estate and is making it his lifelong mission to make the car “an iconic icon of the city.”
Vintage car rental companies have been around for decades, but it has never been quite like this.
The car rental industry has become more popular in recent years, with Airbnb, Lyft and others all offering car rentals.
Nesbtis father owned the company until his death in 2018.
The mural will feature Renault’s portrait, which is projected on the car’s side.
