    Icon7 Frans's R8 Gordini sketch.

    Hi,

    A little surprise for me. My daughter was talking about me or the Gordini at work today and she had to find a picture of a G to compliment the discussion (at least none of the patients were in strife ) and she obviously jumped on the good old www. What a surprise she got when she stumbled on this sketch of my car, complete with my number plate and the South African Sports Car Club sticker in the windscreen.

    The artist made a comment on there that it is a aircooled 1255 which I edited ofcourse. I hate to think of the comments you guys would have made if I left it there. I think I can enlarge and frame it. Not bad at all!

    That's REALLY nice Frans. He's captured the lines very well I reckon.

    That reminds me of the pictures of my R10 on the web under "Renault 10 photos". There are about 4 or 5 of them. I dont know who took them or how they got there.

    I posted this 2 years ago and today, being Friday at work with nothing going wrong, I surfed the WWW and checked this and that and generally just passing time. To my surprise I came upon this similar image as the previous one but the artist made this one a racing image. I'm not sure if it is 2 separate drawings or has he modified the one afterwards.

    Whichever, both looks good.
