My Dream Car

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


The Thunderbird was nice for what it was: A Hot Rod with a college education. The 'Vette however, went to 'Trade School'... if you get my meaning...


***Note from Kerry:
Jim, it's so easy to forget this is a drawing! Looks just like a photo you've taken from inside your garage. (Please send me just half of your drawing skills, I'll look after 'em, promise.)

Dragster Mug Shot

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


One of the very few instances where I will EVER use a straight edge, so enjoy it!


***Note from Kerry:
Jim, I love the effect on the back wheel. That's a mean looking dragster.

Screamin' Eagle

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Ah the days of the Pontiac K cars. Trying so hard to be a Firebird...


***Note from Kerry:
Jim, my brother used to have a lot of car magazines lying around and this drawing reminded me of something I had seen in one of them. Brilliant drawing.

Pinto Panic

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


I can picture it in my mind... Sitting at the traffic light at the intersection/crosswalk and waiting for pedestrians to get right in front of you... Then you rev the engine.

I don't know which was best... the reactions to the sound or the vacuum that the supercharger pulled as it altered the path of the poor folks trying to walk in front of it!!

(I've pulled many a poodle from the blower scoop.)


***Note from Kerry:
No Jim, I don't think you're a little fixated on bonnet scoops or motors! It makes me smile that the actual car is secondary.

A Leprechaun Hearse

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


And why not? The little blighters have to have some way to get to the plot, don't they??


***Note from Kerry:
Jim, your imagination is unreal. The wheels have my full attention again, love that.

An Alpha Romeo Concept Car Back In The day

An Alpha Romeo Concept Car Back In The day

They were called 'Peach Basket Treasures' because whenever you found one, it was in pieces and usually stored, yes... in baskets, under the workbench. Very few times were there parts missing. Maybe they couldn't do anything with them, but they respected the car!


***Note from Kerry:
Jim, you must have a fantastic portfolio of drawings. I just shake my head most times, you are amazing.

Plumber's Revenge

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Remember the days when everyone wanted a "Rail Job". There was a lot of plumbing pipe that went missing in those days! (that was before they started checking building practices and materials used...)


***Note from Kerry:
Cool drawing Jim! It's lucky I can see it, there's a lot of smoke and dust around.

'65 'Cuda

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


This is a case where Chrysler/Plymouth simply gave up too early. Another couple of years and I think the 'Cuda would have been a strong contender on the Muscle Car bracket.


***Note from Kerry:
Love the mags, Jim. It's another good drawing by you!

Fat Fenders

Take a trip

Wasting Time

Click one image to enlarge it for viewing.

Take a trip down memory lane and smell the rust and mohair from days gone by. Simulated ivory dash knobs and the feel of a bank vault door when you slid into the seat.

Now them were the days...

Drawing #2 - The Other Car

..."Time's a'waistin' !...

It's been a while since I've been in the 'garage' so I'll let this one be the offering of the day.

(...and YES... I DO wish I had one of these...)

Note from Kerry:
Hi Jim
It looks like a V Dub with a major face lift. Ok, maybe it's only the fenders that remind me of a VW. Great drawing!

Drawing #2 - The other car
I think you just want to drive cars like this, no matter what they look like! Ah, it's good to see there's still a bit of 'wild boy' in you Jim.

That is an unbelievable drawing...

Another Beetle

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Hitler couldn't make this little Bug live up to expectations, so after the war, the U.S. took over the reigns (indirectly) and look out! The two cars in every garage that some Presidents wanted just didn't quite make it.


***Note from Kerry:
Jim
I could study your drawings for hours!

A Knight on his Charger

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Sorry for the long absence Folkes, but all was not well in the "Land of Nod". But now... "I'm Baaaacckkk!"

"In days of olde, when knights were bold, and gas was .35 a gallon... 'Huffers' like this were everywhere!

Note from Kerry:
Hi Jim
I'm sorry to hear you've had a setback but I'm so pleased to see you are back! I have missed you! And, I was thinking about you.
This machine (and drawing) is unreal!

Mustang Sally

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Timing is indeed everything. When all the good songs were coming out, there were no cars to match the lyrics! Now we got the cars... but the songs suck!


***Note from Kerry:
Fantastic drawing once again, Jim.

Dream Car

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


Like every other guy in High School, we always laid claim to whatever wheels we were driving as our 'own' and we were just keeping it clean for our Dad.

( right......)


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jim, every young man must do that! I remember the way my brother smiled everytime he was allowed to drive. I remember these cars, too. Hmmm, must be getting old, yikes.

Your drawing is awe inspiring, the detailing fantastic. Good work, Jim.

'32 Ford 3 Window Coupe

by Jim Leming
(Issaquah, WA)


If there were ever an 'original' hot rod, I'd be hard pressed to find a better choice, unless it would be an open tub roadster.


***Note from Kerry:
This is phenomenal, Jim. I just sit here and shake my head. I love the shine.
