And in Yellow. Not the easiest colour to work with :)

Absolutely Alan, I don't think I ever got it quite right, and I did a lot of yellow cars with the Pennzoil Penskes and Lola (singular I think, it may have been two). The problem is that getting the base yellow right is not always easy, then comes the question - what colour is yellow in the shadows? If you are not carefull you end up with brown or green. Or tangerine. Must be the approaching festive season that made me think of that. Or the fact that I've just eaten a couple, and very nice they were too. I may have a third...

how much is another (- like innocenti too,) questionable development of an Issigonis masterpiece of design; even more straitened than the original product?

I didn't think it was a Betti either, (the uncut glass is a good clue, Marc!) and it is a print, not an original.

What an amazing site. I had a quick look at the Rover section and I think I did the airflow side elevation here when I was at Industrial Artists in Hitchin. I did a few others including a few sections but they aren't included on the site.

The Rover work was all at short notice and IA got a Freelancer to colour up a line drawing cutaway of an engine. The poor guy worked all weekend and did a really good job. He delivered on time on monday morning and presented his invoice with the artwork. IA were known to be tight with money and I've never seen someone go so red so quickly when they questioned his bill. He grabbed the illustration and threatened to tear it up unless he was paid - which he was - as the meeting with the Rover people was about to start and they could hear what was going on. Strangely we didn't get any more Rover work after that - can't think why :rolleyes:

Great story, Alan, and always nice to see the name Hitchin mentioned on the thread, as it seems to been quite significant in Cutawayland.

Sorry I didn't pay attention to the uncut-glass and I didn't say it's an original.
The Betti brothers did lots of drawings for Opel, so who did usually work for Vauxhall then?

I found a few other things while I was searching around for that Nova.

The third, and final, page spread for the Art of David Kimble is this Pontiac 389 V8 engine out of the 60s. A lot of good stuff in there, it appears.
Price is $99, so not cheap, but it is a limited edition of 1000 copies, all signed.

I have bought a copy of the book, which has been safely delivered to the UK and is an excellent production. Alongside some of the text are enlarged sections of the original line drawings, which really show the stunning level of detail. Malcolm

This is the Reynard 95I by Tony Matthews. (That’s “ninety-five-eye”, not “nine-five-one”.) This illustration appeared as a “Racecar Profile” in Racecar Engineering magazine,Vol.4 No.2, and, also, in the May 1995 issue of Racer magazine. From Tony’s comments regarding the unattributed, generic version posted on page 200, it was also used in Valvoline advertizing. Why was this car important? The car was designed by Malcolm Oastler and won the 1995 Indy Car World Series Championship with Jacques Villeneuve. Winning a total of eight races, Reynard was also awarded the inaugural IndyCar Constructors Cup. I wonder if that award lasted any longer than the Reynard business, as IndyCar racing soon devolved into a spec series. The car illustrated was driven by Robby Gordon.

A car that is notable also, for providing an opportunity to dust off and use that rare, but wonderful word/term 'Shortitudinal'! :)

This is also the Reynard 95I by Tony Matthews, first seen in post#167, back in the mists of Time, and was used by Valvoline in their advertising as it was Valvoline who commissioned the illustration and paid for it...

Nothing to do with Cutaways (and totally off topic) but the JJ Lehto, driver of the car pictured, is possibly about to be spending time in prison following a moment of madness connected to boats and alcohol!

Tony, I had that same thought. Not to stereotype anything here, but I would consider the pressure to be pretty tough for the Finnish, always being the historic buffer between the rest of Scandinavia and the "Evil Empire" ... or is that now the "Sort of Bad Empire" now? Plus, it is almost like being in the Arctic most of the year, and I can't believe that one would see a lot of bikini models around, so the pressure would build there, of course. I have never heard of the Finnish Bikini Team, have you? Just getting ready for a date with a reindeer must require throwing back a few ... at least for the reindeer.
Well, now that I have completely insulted my Finnish friends ... see my Facebook Friends list for all of those consonant-filled names that do not seem to be pronounceable.

With all the attention David Kimble is getting because of the publication of his book, Cutaways, I am reminded that he got his first break when Sports Car Graphic featured his story about new cars for the 1965 USAC season in its May 1965 issue. The article was illustrated with his first two automotive cutaways. One of those, the Halibrand Shrike, has been posted to this forum, twice, on pages 75 and 252, with two separate listings in the index. I don’t think that his other illustration has been posted.
Posted Image
This car was known during its early USAC racing as the Harrison Special. As with the sports racing Harrison Special that has previously been posted, it was designed and built by Jerry Eisert. Logically, then, they should be called Eiserts, this one, specifically, the 1964 Eisert Indy Car, the other one a 1963 Eisert sports racer. (This is similar to calling a car a Lotus 76 rather than a John Player Special II.) Although Kimble was discussing various chassis for the 1965 racing season, his illustration was of the ’64 Eisert tube-framed car rather than the stressed-skin ’65 version then under construction.

So what about this car? It raced twice in early ’65 before failing to qualify for the Indianapolis 500 with a rookie driver. Another race after that before it passed into other hands and, again, DNQ’d for the ’66 500 as an Arciero Special. Just proving that old racecars never die, the car still exists in a car collection near Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and appeared at the 2009 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

All of the heavy lifting was, and still is, done by Ibsen... all I did was put his existing entries into alphabetic order so I could find things. As I have demonstrated by past duplicate postings, I too easily overlooked entries before - this was but an attempt to stop embarrassing myself.

Good find. We haven't seen the BH (presumably Brian Hatton) version yet, and though the Shin Yoshikawa example was originally posted on p207 (post 8247), the image has for some reason disappeared - it is reposted below because of its larger size. The Theo Page image was posted on p207 (post 8288) in a slightly larger format, but without the frame and suspension detail.

I thought that I would add a few more of the Haynes pieces to the group collection this evening. Can't say that these are my favorites, and the copies were not all htat great ... think that the covers were not printed all that well so I am not overly happy with the results here.
The first is Terry Davey's illustration of the Subaru 1600 from 1980.
