Owner/Artist Nicole Strine

The Cat's Meow is a 1990 Honda Civic painted with One Shot Sign Painter's Enamel. The car took one month of almost constant work to complete. Nicole and her good friend Debbi Maciupa spent 8 long hours wet-sanding the car by hand to remove the factory finish. Nicole's mom, Patty Eppes, was so inspired by the project that she ended a 17 year break from painting to join in the fun. Patty painted the cats on the sides of the car and even named it "The Cat's Meow."spacer
passenger sideThe pictures on this car are reproductions of original artwork by Jennifer Reinhard (the cat on the driver's side), Rebecca Emberly (the peacock on the hood) and Colin and Jacqui Hawkins (the cat on the passenger's side).

Nicole was inspired to paint her car after visiting St. Louis in February of 1994 when she traveled around the city in two different art cars. Every day since then, Nicole has driven an art car. Nicole is very involved with the art car community, and for the past two years, she has been the chairman of The Orange Show Art Car Parade.
