Drivepast Original Movie Posters
Le Mans - The Man and The Fan
Drivepast was set up by former broadcaster Paul Veysey. From the Citroen Light and Big 15s he drove as a teenager in New Zealand, through the TRs, Jaguars and Beetles he raced and rallied, to the ID19 Citroen in which he and his wife Helen finished the first Monte Carlo Challenge in 1990, Paul has had a lifelong interest in motor cars.
For most of his life, Paul has also had a love of movies, and when Helen bought him a poster for the film Checkpoint as a birthday present, he found the perfect outlet for his two main interests.
This love of classic motors and old movies lead Paul to discover that, although there were movie poster dealers worldwide, there was no one concentrating on the motoring and motor racing end of the market.
The Devil's Hairpin awaits
Drivepast has become a unique collection of original movie posters that Paul has sourced internationally and which has now found a new home in Gloucestershire, England... until, of course, they find a newer home on your wall.
You may already have met Paul when he was exhibiting at The Pebble Beach Concours, The Goodwood Revival and Festival, The Le Mans Classic, Brussels Retro or at Silverstone, Beaulieu or the International Historic at Stoneleigh.
Drivepast is a great collection to browse and you're sure to find something that you like. Alongside the classics like Le Mans, The Italian Job & Bullitt, there are many posters for little known and obscure films, with great art and graphics.
There are of course favourites, like Bidon d'Or from 1932 for its sheer size and stunning artwork; in fact much of the best artwork is actually for the ropiest of films - Pigalle Carrefour Des Illusions, for example has all the classic elements of a French B movie poster - the Citroen DS, a Bardot-esque girl, a gangster, all against a backdrop of Moulin Rouge and Sacre Coeur, but does anyone know the film?
Please enjoy Drivepast, forgive the sometimes less than professional photography and don't hesitate to get in touch with Paul Veysey to find out more, or teach us more about any of the posters.
