Hand drafted F1 vintage race car drawings

Tony Cairoli is a Toronto area artist who specializes in hand drafting pictures of vintage racecar's. His meticulous drawing work goes even further than a conventional general arrangement drawing by trying to represent practically every nut and bolt on the car. Everything is done by hand in pen and ink, just like the draftsmen of old.

Tony remarks how you could identify who made old hand drawings just by observing the style of their work, and how they were able to capture their subject completely. This skill was not limited to drawings of cars. It was a point of pride for many a draftsman and woman to represent their work completely on a single sheet of paper.
