TNF Cutaway Index updated at page 110.


What a beautiful engine!

PS, I think the Spice above is the SE91P as opposed to 90?

Scratch that Ibsen I'm wrong, it is the SE90P.

I do have a favor to ask though, do you have any cutaways done of any Holden's at all?

Hi AP, I haven't done any Holdens, but our resident archivists may come up with something. When I was at Bathurst in 1990 there were a lot of cars in the paddock that I would liked to have drawn.

... particularly the gearbox internals, fascinating stuff. :clap:

I'm pleased you liked the F2000 gearbox, Dan, it was a greater challenge than it should have been - one more works drawing and it would have meant less panic - but I realy enjoyed doing it. I like gears...

This is a particularly unique composition for a cutaway (With figures and on track :drunk: ). It would be great to see it at a higher resolution. There is a signature along the bottom, but unfortunately at this stage, due to the resolution it remains obscured. It is promotional/celebratory material we know that much.

Parker Johnstone's 1991 Spice-Acura (Artist 'temporarily' unknown)


Hector Luis Bergandi (I think I'm spelling that correctly).

We used to have the framed and signed print in the stairwell of our office- I'm not sure where it is now, but if I find it, I'll get a better image of it for you. The artist is known more for automotive art than cutaways, so it's unique in that respect. I suppose that the nearly isometric view was done because of his limited capabilites.

Looks like the "Acura" as it was commonly known, is depicted at the season opener - the SunBank Daytona 24 hours. Witness the other driver's helmet next to Parker Johnstone. (The car is facing the wrong way for it to be Sebring).

The chassis was Spice SE90P Acura 88-004 for what it's worth. Wonder if Bergandi did any other IMSA stuff?

What a wonderful little Lightweight Special 1939 Austin Seven.do we have any photos or history on it thanks in advance. :up:

Issignonis’ first job was working as a draughtsman and salesman for an engineering consultant who was developing a type of semi-automatic transmission. In his free time, from 1933 until 1938, Issigonis worked with his friend, George Dowson, on a private project to construct a hand-built racing car – the Lightweight Special. Built without the aid of power tools, the car employed an efficient ‘stressed skin’ structure devised by Issigonis and plywood body sides covered in aluminium sheeting. Issigonis successfully raced the car himself, until the demands of his job forced him to stop in 1948. He later described the Lightweight as: “A frivolity in my life. It was not so much a design exercise as a means of teaching me to use my hands.”

Hello Cutawaylanders !!
Thanks for all your kind PMs and e-mails while I was out of the running.
I have been keeping track of the goings-on, and must say you have amazed me with all the great posts.
I have done some scanning and splicing but even that tired me.
I am back in better shape, but no way ready to run the Rotterdam Marathon next week.

Anyway, here is what I presume to be a Giulio Betti.

Been out of this for a little while, as far as the assembled scans are concerned, so want to give you a bit of a contribution out of a few of the older mags again.
This will be a series of Porsches by Clarence LaTourette.
We will start with the Porsche 718 Spyder out of the October 1958 Sports Car Illustrated.

I believe that this is the infamous James Dean Porsche, possibly not. Still a pretty unique format to accomplish a high performance car back in the day.

I have gotten to really appreciate the work of Max Millar over the years, more in the aviation field than in automotive, but this little Riley Nine engine was pretty cool. From Sports Car Illustrated, December, 1956.

Now you have to take some of my old stuff ...
This is an Alcohol Funny car out of Michigan. They ran an Injected Funny Car circuit, and this was probably one of the more unusual as the Pontiac engine in this car was based on a lot of experimental parts out of Pontiac research. Partner Tom Nell pulled heads and that sort of thing out of the research parts that turned into the street dominating Ram-Air series of engines out of the Big Indian division. The other two partners, Gary Rossow and Fred Hargraves were fraternity brothers. Can't remember who the girl was ...

Always liked this car back in the day, and it has been recreated by a friend, Ron Hope and is making display runs yet today on the historic circuit. I actually had an offer to take a ride in this thing, but decided that I would rather have something more positive to show for it. Agreed to set up a bracket to mount my motordrive Nikon up in front, and were planning on it the following weekend. They went out on a Wednesday night for some tune-up runs, when the car did a major wheelstand over the guardrail, destroying the car, and breaking most of the bones for driver Danny Collins. Ended his driving career.

Beautiful Porsches there Tom, especially the 718 Spyder and the RS61, I have only ever come across them before on coloured backgrounds but never seen them in such clarity. :up:

Did you ever illustrate any of Don Garlits's cars Tom? I was reading a piece about him today in a book (where it seems they mis-spelt his name 'Garlitz') and as well as a potted history of his achievements there was a really great photo of him outside a garage, in I think 1957 sitting looking pretty mean in a 'Dons Speed Shop' liveried monster!

Well at least it saves you getting into the kind of trouble I get myself into.......
I had a girl's name noted down in my diary, and my wife questioned me about her......
I had to white lie myself out of that one telling her it was the name of a horse I had put a bet on.

Two days later.......................

My wife told me my horse had phoned in to speak to me .......

Mac,
I have books of pics of women from back then, but few of whom that I have so much specific detail, or time working on as I do with the cutaways ...
Maybe that explains it. Besides, she was a friend of one of my fraternity brothers, and I am not sure I remember his name correctly, and we were in that house together for over three years.
I remember, while living at home during my time in college (spent 6 weeks in LA area at a GM operation, and 6 weeks in Michigan at General Motors Institute, alternating), I had shot a rather amazing slightly older woman. I had my proof sheets sitting in some other things and my mother and sister decided that all of my stuff needed to be organized (read: spied through). I had used a couple of things around the house for outfits, and everyone was horrified.
Thought it looked pretty decent, personally.
Also, there was the 17 year old that was talked into doing nude stuff by one of her friends while I was up at school. I thought she was a touch older until I was informed by her father when I called for her to arrange for another shoot the next day that she was, indeed, 17. I have to say that I was looking over my shoulder for a guy and his simian son who were supposedly out looking for me ...
Or, the one who ...
But, we should be getting back to the cutaways, don't you think?

Werks,
The only Garlits car that I have illustrated was the Swamp Rat XXX, the one that he won three consecutive NHRA Championships with. I was doing it, and met Robert Post, a curator at the Smithsonian Institution, who I worked with on a couple of things, and had that illustration incorporated as the center of the backlit back wall of a display featuring the car. The car and the display ended up being featured in the Science and Technology Museum in Washington for something like ten years ... which was pretty cool. Considering that the illustration was only my second drawing in 13 years, it was quite an honor. I know that Post had heard of, and seen my stuff earlier, so he thought it was serendipitous that we came together at that time.
I also did the research for the Revell-Monogram modelkit of the car, which was when I shot the research for the illustration.
I have material to illustrate the Swamp Rat I, the SR VI (the mid-60s car), and the Wynn's Charger (his first rear-engined car that set the drag racing world on it's ear). To see that first SR I, based on Model A (I think) frame rails, and have his line of cars evolve into that rear-engined car and the SR XXX is pretty interesting.

Thanks, Tony. I have sort of slowed on getting some of those cleaned up, as they really take a while to pull the color out of the background (considering the registration that seems to be +/- .250" or so at times). Really wish that those magazines hadn't been done by the lowest bidder ... Some horrid stuff to fix at times. There are maybe another 25 waiting to be assembled, and probably 15 sitting to be posted, not including my own.

The only car that carried the Don's Speed Shop was the Swamp Rat I, so that would have been about '56-'58, I believe.

Hi Tom, I've just looked through 'the Eagle Annual of the Cutaways' and no Allard - no index either! I'm ashamed to admit that it's the first time I've looked at it since I bought it, it went straight into the bookcase. Someone probably knows...

I understand that IPC Media retain the rights to all Fleetway comics and characters created prior to 1970, Tom. The original cutaway artwork was auctioned by Sothebys some years ago.
Might be worth trying http://www.ipcmedia....companyhistory/

About 20 years ago I did quite a few jobs for RR in Crewe and was often in the Tech Pubs Dept.

This may be an in house illustration by a chap who IIRC was called Stephen Moy. He'd produce these nice airbrush illustrations when time permitted. It certainly looks like his style.

Do you have any tales to recount Tony of encountering particularly congested bundles of cables during any of your research trips? And did you ever get a look at the instrument panel of that monstrous March 85G Buick! The beast will lose its character if it wasn't a relatively sparse affair?

I spent some time up in my attic with the hobgoblins on Easter Monday wp, looking for the box of 85G photos - no find. I will bear it in mind when I look for something else, that's always the best way of finding things.

Ah well, thanks for even looking Tony :up: You do realise that "being up an attic with hobgoblins on an Easter Monday" could easily have resulted in another health and safety incident? Can you confirm trampoline, safety net and of course the usual array of safety cones were in place?
