Geogre Lucas loves to ride bicycle
George Lucas’s “Fiat Bianchina” was a coupe automobile based on the Fiat 500, which he received as a gift from his father. Shortly after acquiring the car, the Hollywood’s movie man customized it for races and enjoyed swift rides until he got hospitalized after crashing the gifted car on a public road. The luxurious "recreational vehicle", Bianchina featured a completely stylish body design and incorporated premium equipments like a twin cylinder, air cooled rear mounted engine and a powerful braking system. The luxury car’s ownership was considered a sign of increasing affluence in the Italian society.

George Lucas is a huge art connoisseur and particularly fancies paintings composed by Norman Rockwell, a painter who excelled in depicting modern American life. Lucas was immensely influenced by Norman’s work during his growing up years and started buying the artist’s masterpieces from the seventies decade after the success of his films transformed him into a millionaire. The director owns more than 50 of Norman’s paintings; most of them part of a larger collection of American illustrative art. The first painting to be acquired was the iconic painting titled "Boy and Father: Baseball Dispute” depicting a tense father and son confrontation. His dossier also consists both the drawing and the completed painting titled “First Trip to the Beauty Shop’ which depicts a young girl’s delight after obtaining a fresh haircut. One of Lucas’s favorites is the” Boy Reading Adventure Story” painting that portrays how words can manage to string together a picture. Another artwork that tugs at George’s heart strings is “The Toy Maker” painting which takes back to the viewer to an ancient era when grandparents used to delight kids by crafting handmade toys. The “Shadow Artist” depicts children being entertained in a puppet show. The avid collector has no plans to sell his art collection which is believed to be worth a lot more then the prices at which he had invested in them. Lucas says, “I'm never going to sell my work, so that doesn't make any difference to me.”
