The hand-airbrushed First Responder Silverado on display!
The vehicle captures powerful images from 09/11/01 saluting the first responders who acted so bravely that day. It also captures the story of the past 10 years, going from the awakening of the “Spirits of Patriotism” via the attack depicted on the front hood, to the rebuilding toward the back of the truck. Included are the names of the brave first responders who made the ultimate sacrifice that day.

Mickey Harris has been professionally airbrushing for 35 years and has an extensive portfolio of art honoring America’s heroes. Military art has been a lifelong study of Mickey’s and his artwork has won numerous awards all over the country. His work has appeared in numerous publications, and he has been a guest on several talk shows, news broadcasts and television programs.
