We don't have kids, so I get to assume that role here by default.  devil I'm not so good at drawing, but  I here's a doodle that I just made of a 1930s car.  That's supposed to look like a straight pipe and the air clearners for a pair of SU carbs.

I'm just impressed how fast she finishes her project cars and gets then entered.

Door hinge pins for stacks.  He made it with my dad, dad made a sled with runners for the table saw so the kids can safely cut stuff.  It's just a square lampshade, but an angle iron lamp would fit with my dad being able to make just about anything.  Now i kinda want to make a lamp.

No kids here, but I'll post up a pic of my 1/24 scale Ferrari F430 in progress. Just waiting on good weather so I can paint the body.

sleepykid#1 caught me watching vintage f1 cars driving around monza, particularly a Tyrell P34... and when this thread came up, he decided he wanted to draw 'an 8-wheeled race car', and drew this one based on some weird hack jobs we found searching for 8-wheeled cars

Here's my younger daughter with her contribution:

They were doing a unit on Futurism in art class, and this was her concept.

A close-up:

She says in her mind she started with a Mustang for the general shape, but then just took it in her own direction.  I particularly like the stars.

My older daughter's Dinosaur Car - 2003

I posted a photo of my drawing--the one on the Manila envelope--to Instagram, and someone asked what it's supposed to be. Cobra Daytona? Z-car? Jaguar?

To be honest, I drew the wheels and the bottom of the body. Then I paused: Doh, which way is this thing even going to point? And what exactly am I trying to draw?

So, really, it's just a generic car. I guess my main thought was, I gotta draw something quickly so I can post it. I spent more time looking for the silver Sharpie. (Turns out it was in my backpack, not the camera bag or even my desk.)

Anyway, let's keep that artwork coming.

My 6 yr old wanted a piece of the action. She drew this the first night the thread was up but then went to bed before I posted it.  She just remembered and brought it to me.

After she finished the car she decided the picture needed a tree and a couple birds too.

My 8 yo grandson loves all cars but especially from a particular German manufacturer. We'll have to work on the spelling.

"Art for kids hub" on youtube is an amazing resource. 
 

The girls just created these.

Also: PARENTS: Have your kids SIGN their work!!! No name = No fame!

 


 

Caroline: Age 5

I really dig the flames and the off-center placement, giving a sense of movement!


 

Emily: Age 8

Stripes on the road and signature in the clouds are a nice touch. :)

On the right chassis, that could be fun to drive. Since we already have a triceratops monster truck, there's no reason why we couldn't have a stegosaurus and an ankylosaur as well.

Revsinstitue.org has some pretty cool historic images for coloring. Here's my daughter with her interpretation of what the 1967 Le Mans GT40 would have looked like if she were driving it.
