Elizabeth Bailey, Artist
Penny Smith and Harry Leverette, Owners

Gertrude is a 1967 Ford Falcon Futura with an ever-changing personality. Purchased in 1994 to be an art car covered with CD-ROMs, she was originally named Gertrude the Multimedia CD-ROMobile. The initial design called for hundreds of individually crafted CDs to be glued onto the body of the car. gertrude hub cap
When it came time to apply glue, however, the spirit of Gertrude cried out to be painted instead.

Gertrude is a work in progress and currently sports an original painting by Houston artist Elizabeth Bailey. Elizabeth will paint the remainder of the car in 1996, while owner Penny Smith will complete the interior.

Gertrude is dedicated to the memory of her one and only previous owner, Gertrude Beaman. and to the commemoration of Gertrude Stein.
