This is a sketch/render of a lovely Series II owned by someone I met through the Jaguar Club. He was kind enough to take me for a drive in his car prior to me buying mine, which was a big help as it allowed me to get an idea of what it is, because, althoughContinue reading “Series II E-Type”
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 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”
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.
More from Nick Mason’s Ten Tenths collection… This is a Maserati 250F – I don’t know the exact provenance but these cars were driven in F1 by the likes (amongst many others of Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss. The 250F raced from 1954 until 1960. One of the brilliant things about Ten Tenths collectionContinue reading “Maserati 250F”
This was supposed to be a quick sketch and render but became a little more complex – but let me start at the beginning. In 2005 I was living in England, and a very close friend of mine was doing some work for Maserati which included going up to the Cotswolds to interview Nick MasonContinue reading “Maserati Birdcage (Tipo60/61)”
Catching up… a sketch from British Car Day last September (!) of a lovely Jaguar XK120 with a gaggle of XJSs in the background.
