"Study Hall" Drawings (Episode Two)
Car Lust continues its series on "study hall" drawings, following a superb submission from Tigerstrypes. Another post with similar sketches is coming soon, and if anybody else has some to contribute, we'll gladly put a post together with your designs as well.
This time, we're featuring the artwork of Paulo Rebordão. He says the first two renderings were from 1983-84; the rest are from 1990. From cars to specialty vehicles to a two-wheeler, he has covered the automotive spectrum quite nicely:
I see a French influence here, maybe leaning toward Renault.
Quite futuristic and plenty of ground clearance. The wheels are out at the corners as well.
Looks like a little '69 Buick Riviera style found its way into the roofline, quarter panels, and rear side windows of this car. But the windshield and front end are definitely ahead of its time.
A camper with a detachable front mobile unit. Nice details on the living quarters.
Johnny Cash sang about "A Boy Named Sue." Well, here's a car named Sioux. It could also be a small pickup/ute vehicle with an open bed.
The CX-C may have been aimed at Honda's CR-X, but its elongated front end suggests that it probably would have had rear wheel drive.
Composites might make up the structure of this two-wheeled machine.
Mr. Rebordão has taken some good names for his vehicles.
Thanks again to Paulo Rebordão for submitting his designs. And we'll have another post on "study hall" drawings coming up soon!
