"Drag'n 40"

I love Tail Draggers! This is a pencil drawing of a 40 Ford Coupe dragging it's tail with cool skirts, and Caddy caps. What else could you want!

I wanted to have this old building in the background, for character. The problem was, the bricks took as long to draw as the car!

"Dream Drive"

This pencil drawing is of one of my alltime favorite cars. It's a 1935 Auburn Boattail Speedster 851 SC.

I envision a beautiful actress driving down a two lane highway in California, on a hot summer night. Maybe she’s on the way to her latest movie opening…

I was at the Auburn Museum a few weeks ago and fell in love with this car. The 851 SC has a 280 ci supercharged inline 8 cyl. engine. It was at the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum and was up for auction with the proceeds going to the museum. Just a stunning car!

(Actually the woman driving is my wife. I had her sit on a lawn chair in the backyard holding a steering wheel, with a scarf on her head.
