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.
