Dan Palatnik and the Art of Lost Cars

Dan  Palatnik  and  the  Art  of  Lost  Cars

Dan Palatnik has led the effort of creating 3D renderings for all handcrafted specials we study and celebrate.  Dan’s been with us since nearly the start and has worked with the entire Undiscovered Classics team in creating renderings that guide our restorations so that the end result is exactly on target with our – and our customer’s – expectation.

Dan’s work goes far beyond use in restorations – his work allows us to showcase beautiful design lines of cars in ways that photography cannot and we share these with folks who read our stories, those in the media who author stories for their readership and his work has been published in significant venues such as the programs for both the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance and the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

We are a better and more successful organization because of Dan and are honored to share his story and artwork across our website and beyond.  Those of you wanting to contact Dan Palatnik can do so directly via his email address:  dan.palat@gmail.com.

Thanks  Dan!
