In the “better late than never” department – This is a Jaguar XJ220 that I saw at a jaguar Show at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum last fall… surprisingly, there were two XJ220s there – the one illustrated and a yellow one that I da seen at British Car day a couple of years ago.Continue reading “XJ220, Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum”
A quick sketch of “Oscar” – a 25′ (guess) Airstream Land Yacht that Evelyn and I booked this past weekend (Hallowe’en). Oscar was parked on a farm on top of Blue Mountain. The weather, as it turned out, was awful – we hit solid cloud (well – fog) at Orangeville and it only got worseContinue reading “1971 Airstream, Blue Mountain”
A long awaited sketch from a brilliant show I went to about a month and a half ago. This was a show at the Canadian Heritage Warplane Museum in Hamilton, and it was a show dedicated to Jags, not planes, though Evelyn and I spent about half our time toddling through the amazing aircraft andContinue reading “Jaguar XJ220”
A couple of weeks ago they shut down power in our condo for 4 consecutive days (!) due to electrical upgrades. Evelyn and I thus, scooted off to an Airbnb in Elora to wait it out. We stayed at “Casa Elora”, and it was brilliant… it is right downtown and looks over the Grand RiverContinue reading “Casa Elora”
Joan Mir was the winner of the 2020 MotoGP season – he was also one of 5 riders to win their maiden race this season (more drawings to follow!). This is the first time that Suzuki has won the championship in 20 years, and I think that it’s safe to say that few were bettingContinue reading “Joan Mir, World Champion”
This is a Porsche Carrera 6 that I saw at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart. This is one of those vehicles that one can only stand back and gaze at in awe, a true representation of what metal, alloy and fibre can be fashioned into that that leaves one gobsmacked and awestruck.
This is a prototype of the Mercedes Benz 300SL at the Mercedes Benz Museum in Stuttgart. There are some noticeable differences from the 300Sl as released, but they are subtle. This took much longer for me to do than usual as I wanted to capture the colours of the car, and it was reallyContinue reading “Mercedes 300SL Prototype”
When I arrived in London in 2004, I had ensured that I would have a little more than 3 weeks to settle in prior to my Masters course beginning, in order that I could toddle around and visit places I’d been before as well as discover the new to me. One of my first visitsContinue reading “Lightweight E-Type”
This was a nice surprise. The pub I used to frequent in London (it was a good pub and very close to the RCA) was called “The Queen’s Arms”, and right across the road from it was a place called “Coy’s of Kensington” which sold classic, exotic and sports cars. One evening I headed outContinue reading “Rothmans Porsche”
Another car from Nick Mason’s Ten Tenths Collection. This was a beautiful Ferrari 250GTO that was up on jackstands being worked on. The GTO was between a couple of Bugattis and a Dark Green Ferrari 512BB. A great place to spend an afternoon.
