uncanny: odd, uncomfortably strange; beyond the ordinary or normal
drive: to strive vigorously; a carpark; to convey in a vehicle
Vehicles – cars, trains, bikes, whatever – when well-designed, are mobile sculptures. A talented designer can shape metal to refer to masculine or feminine forms, convey aggression or illustrate speed. I’ve been impressed by this since I was a kid, and these drawings try to capture the basic thrust of some classic designs.
The cars that I love most are the ones that can be found in a junkyard, or the ones that an average family may actually be able to own. The efficiency of their production and the practicality they require make their artistry more impressive than the unobtainable street-legal racecars built for unlimited budgets.
As a result of this prejudice, you may find me leaning a bit toward Saabs, but will try to be inclusive, and I'm always open to suggestions.
