StarDucks: Pan American Racer

It's a peach! StarDucks' Steampunk Duck appears on/sponsors Lars Kroiss' stunningly beautiful Volvo 122S on this year's La Carrera Panamericana. What you can see above are the approved rough designs. I'll post the finished designs later this month. (BTW: The photo above shows not Kroiss' racer but it is basically the same)

Update: Alright, this just came in from Lars. This is the actual car, where the designs will be displayed:


  1. Couldn't read this and not comment. I'm a Volvo fanatic and love the 122's!

    Cannot wait to see this on the actual car!!!

  2. Thanks Brian! And I cannot wait to show it to you :)

  3. This beats cock-fighting! Crazy good!

  4. Your work is amazing!! Thanks for sharing!!

  5. Nothing can be more cool that seeing your characters on a car!

    I have one question, though. Why is it called the "Pan-American" racer?

  6. Craig, Anna-Maria! :) THANKS!

    Richard, thanks very much! BTW: they call it so, because the team/car will be attending the Mexican road race "La Carrera Panamericana".
