I have some photos of my teacher's old school illustrations, but he's retired and I doubt I can get permission to show it. He graduated after Syd Mead from Art Center and is just as good as him. Most of those work date back to the late 70s. One of them, although dated on 79, was actually done when he was 17. He said he didn't want people to make a big fuss about it.

Those are some real kick a55 illustrations!

Those are some very nice vintage sketches. We see that kind of stuff at school from some of the professors all the time. I like that lantern drawing, very nice.

Later,
Tucker

This is one of my Dad's old renderings - the original proposal for the '70 Roadrunner. I'm working on digitally restoring it right now (it still has a LONG way to go)- the original is almost 6 feet long...

Check out the hound dogs in the back seat!

awesome, I didn't realize JH had the skils like that! Good to see that such a great designer can climb up the ladder and be a VP.

YKH- you know I'm only playing.

cool. Roadrunners were my favorite muscle car. way way way back ( :) ) neighbor had a '70 blown hemi. big tires. big car. subdued olive-y paintjob but no one was fooled. sucker looked fast parked on side of street. awesome vehicle.

optimistic - that looks like the beginnings of the "Superbird" version. is it?

My bad - it's a sketch for the '72

YKH - that's a really good question about the superbird... I'll find out. That front nose does have a striking similarity, and they were done around the same time...
