Nostalgia reigns in downtown Punta Gorda. When Steve Feineigle purchased the old gas station on the corner of US 41 North and Olympia in 2003 he wanted to establish a business that was something to be proud of. What better way than with murals? After a slight delay when Hurricane Charley visited us, work commenced and Classics of the Past was born.

Steve’s Auto Shoppe features four murals on a building painted in 50’s style highlighting authentic classic cars of the past. On the three service bay doors fronting on US 41 North are a classy red 1957 Thunderbird, a beautiful 1957 Chevrolet and a vintage 1948 Ford. On the Olympia side of the Shoppe is a 1932 Ford Coupe Street Rod.

These are all stunning cars that we can remember and ones that must be considered Classic Cars of the past!

The mural was dedicated on April 21, 2005.
