Exner 1929 Stutz ad

Virgil Exner, jr., who had created the posters for the 1998 Elliott Museum Car Show was asked to create the posters for the 1999 Car Show, featuring a 1923 Stutz Roadster.

The son of Virgil M. Exner, sr. knew that his father had created, at the age of 19,

So he used this sketch to create the posters for 1999.
