FOUR VIEW CAR PROFILES

Drawing multiple-view car profiles is for me a hobby, time consuming but rewarding, that I like very much. It's really a good way to gain a better familiarity with a given car, as it forces you to chase documentation for getting details right. And it provides good opportunities to to get back, often with a lot of nostalgy, to racing cars, events and drivers that made me dream in my youth …

I wouldn't want to redo what is already available on the web, as it would not have so much interest, so I try to select cars not over pictured on the web and that were so significant and memorable to me, for various reasons, often emotional, that I still remember them very well. As you will see, the drawings are accompanied by a small text presenting each car.

The profiles are available for DOWNLOAD in PDF (vector) format, for your personal viewing and use (see the left-hand WARNING).

I'm happy to share them with you, as you may find them useful as additional pieces of documentation, should you be a racing model scratch builder or simply a true car racing enthusiast, especially of the golden fifties and sixties era. New profiles are added over time, when I have some time available, so put this page in your favorites for further visits. Of course, I would welcome your comments, especially in case you would have spotted some inaccuracies that I will be happy to correct. Please just use the CONTACT option in the yellow menu.

Anout the yellow menu, please note that it now enables you to switch directly from a car to another, without having to get back first to the CAR PROFILES page.
