At the Motostalgia Gala, the artist will paint unique art pieces which will be auctioned later that evening.


Rhythm and Hue is a performance art show where artist David Garibaldi creates 6 foot portraits of pop icons in minutes to music. Garibaldi’s unique show is extremely versatile and has been featured with celebrities like Carlos Santana, utilized by Fortune 500 companies, and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for various charities and used as a platform to motivate students and employees of various organizations. David Garibaldi was a finalist in America’s Got Talent and touring with the USA Olympic Basketball Team providing halftime performances. He is also an Official Disney Artist as part of the Disney Fine Arts Program recreating character’s through his signature style. He is also a licensed artist with the Elvis Presley Enterprises, Bob Marley Estate, Jimi Hendrix Estate (Hendrix Artworks) as well as several other entertainers.


Held the weekend of the US Grand Prix with its prestigious history, the Motostalgia Auction d’Elegance is the Grand Prix of automobile auctions offering an unprecedented and vast array of collectible automobiles that will attract collectors and auto enthusiasts from around the world. The quench for speed, the desire for luxury and the smell of richness will take on a new meaning during Grand Prix weekend when the paddle goes up on the first bid in Austin at Motstalgia Auction d’Elegance. A sneak peek at some of the collection being offered can be viewed at

Many of the collector cars to be offered are automobiles with fabled histories, World Champion pedigree and a provenance of sheer affluence, fame and fortune. Highlights include the 1950 Cistalia-Abarth 204A original Tazio Nuvolari car, a rare 1930 Rolland-Pilain aluminum, ridged body French Grand Prix racer and a 1953 Cadillac Eldorado of which only 225 were known to have survived out of the original 532 ever built, until now. Motostalgia has found #226 and will offer it at this rare sale.

The 1991 Callaway Speedster #008 Aerobody, one (1) of only ten (10) produced is a very rare vehicle to ever go up for private sale or auction and will be offered at the event. Other highlights include 1933 Duesenberg Model J “Queen of Diamonds” Sports Beline sedan and a very rare 1964 Amphicar, similar to the one once owned by Lyndon B. Johnson. The former President was a prankster, and would fool unsuspecting guests by driving right into the lake at his Texas ranch while pretending he lost his brakes. Little did they know that the rare vehicle floated in water and also drove on the road giving way to the name Amphicar.



A collection of 356 Porsches include a 1957 Speedster, a 1964 356 C and a 1953 356 Pre-A. These are only a sampling of the other automobiles being offered and ones that can very well attract the likes of Tom Cruise, Jerry Seinfeld and David Beckham, who share a lifelong passion for vintage Porsche vehicles of the highest quality.
