You know this one would be fun to drive in Cuba or Merced. There it sits on North Parsons Ave..

 

1962 Corvair Monza Wagon in Merced, CA

Yesterday, which happened to be the day after yet another shameful Republican
“Presidential” Debate in which decency and civility were set back at least 100 years, I saw what I’m almost certain was a 1962 Chevrolet Corvair Monza Wagon on Main St. in Merced, CA, and I was quick enough to pull out my iPhone and catch a photo, which I used as a reference for a freehand drawing in Procreate using the Apple Pencil.

Old GMC Pickup Truck…1961? on El Portal

This beauty caught my eye earlier today while I was walking Cowboy. It’s either a 1960 or 1961 GMC pickup truck.
I took this iPhone photo around 7:45 am, imported it into Procreate, and sketched it side by side, freehand.

Skip’s Old Ford

Here’s the photo I took of Skip’s Old Ford pickup, which I rendered in Procreate. He told me the year, but now I’m not sure he said 1967 or 1968.  This guide might help the curious.

Heading Northwest out of Merced

Last Saturday I rode my bike downtown to Art Hop passing the depot, where I snapped a photo with my iPhone which I used as my reference photo in another side by side, freehand, iPad drawing in Procreate with a Sty-HD stylus.

Taxi in front of Hemingway’s Finca Vigía in Cuba

Like I said, they’re everywhere; well, in Cuba at least. I snapped a shot of this enormous Cadillac taxi, in front of Finca Vigía, a museum now, where Ernest Heminingway lived from 1939 to 1960. The Finca is located in San Francisco de Paula, a small town about 10 miles from Havana.
Here’s a rendering of that taxi done in Procreate with a Sty-HD stylus using the photo referenced above…side by side, freehand.
