I was going through my ancient scrapbook and found these drawings. They are from 1960 to 1963 or there abouts. I would have been 8 to 11 years old. I used my models as 'models' for the drawings. Very cool to see these again.

very cool drawings John. almost look like modern day rat rods. I used to draw all the time. I outlined quarters for the rear tires and nickels for the fronts. was ecstatic when I got a circle template for my b-day. thanks for sharing.
