1965 Chevrolet malibu Gasser Drag Racing Car
This my first drawing in 10 years. It is a 1965 Chevrolet Gasser. I've been in to drag racing for a long time and I thought i would share it here.

I have been drawing since i was 5 and I got pretty good at it by the time I was 14. I'm self taught.

I used to get in trouble in school for drawing in class. I'm 40 now and have not drawn a car since i got married and had kids. I thought it was time to get back into it.

1955 Henry J Gasser Drag Racing Car
This is a 1955 Henry J Gasser car. I found out some time ago this type of car was made by the Sears and Roebuck company back in the early 50's along with the Allstate which look very much like the Henry j. They sold for $1299 new.

They were used during the 50's and 60' for drag racing cars.

Note from Kerry:
Hi Robert
It looks like you haven't lost your touch with the pencil even though you haven't been able to draw for such a long time!

Did you do the whole drawing in ink? It looks like ink for the black shadow on the ground - is that right?

You've done a great job with the tires and the fine detail required for the tread. I like them! Actually, Henry J is my favorite of the 2. (It might be the paintwork!)

Hi Robert
Thanks for answering my question - I can be very nosey sometimes! It's good to know this kind of information as all beginner artists wonder how you get certain effects in a drawing - it's the way we learn. Thanks Robert.

Good.....
These are pretty cool. You should do a drag car coloring book...these would make great coloring pages. Might even sell pretty good at the race events.....one never knows. I think Jim might appreciate your style and subjects.
