Wow, nicely done! I don't recall the girl who drove for Lotus though.

Just received a copy of your SpeedBirds book from Frederic GASSON, and it's superb! What a great mix of aircraft and autos. The sketch/illustration technique is wonderful, enhancing the feeling of shape, form and speed, and when you add color everything gets even better (if that's possible). Being a LOTUS F1 fan since the days of the Lotus 25, you have the start of something you should continue w/additional Lotus vehicles, the Typ 33, 38, 49, 56/56B (Indy and F1 configurations), 72, 87/88, and those that Senna drove. You could/should also explore the Frence custom coach builders, starting w/Figone et Falaschi, Chapron, etc...with their flowing lines coachwork on Talbot Lagos, Delage, Delahayes, Bugatti, and bringing in the Italians, the bodies by Touring on Alfa 8C 2500B's would be wonderful to see you and your colleagues try your hand at these. Now with GM going down, a series of GM Stylings 60's through the 90's 'concept-show Corvettes and cars, done under the watch of Bill Mitchell, Chuck Jordan would be worthy subjects too.

Thanks for all that you've done to date. The aircraft both past and future are just great!

P.S. I'm involved with Frederic GASSON regarding the Bugatti P-100, and am working with a group here in the US who intend to build and fly an exact reproduction of the P-100, faithful in every detail, including creation of new engines, everything!

Superbe ... mais ce n'est pas une 25, plutôt une 32 de formule Tasmane ;)
