a little help please

hello everyone, I wonder if some of you could help me out? I am a graphite pencil artist that mainly sticks to portrait drawing but I am looking to include some drawings of cars into my collection. The only problem is that I have no knowledge of cars. Would it be possible for some of you to let me know what you consider to be some of the best classic cars or maybe what you think are some of the best looking cars that would be interesting to draw. Also if you could let me know what you think are some great classic or current sports cars, then it would be very much appreciated! As you can probably tell I have no knowledge of cars so I would be grateful for any help! I would happily post some of these drawings when finished if their was anyone interested.

many thanks,
Rob,

One of the great classic import cars is the RX-7 which was discontinued here in 1995. Search google for the 'fd rx7' to find pictures. Its a very beautiful car in stock form.

I don't know much about domestic cars, ill let the others chime in here. Keep us posted.

EDIT: See here for some pictures of stock rx-7. Be sure to go to the RX7 2000 link. Also, you could do my car . I have plenty of pics of my car...

many thanks for all your help guys, you have come up with some great looking cars there. Ive been looking on google and found some good pics.

Chris originally I wasn't going to do motorcycles but I had a look at some pics after campoij suggested the repsol honda and I think that they would make for a good drawing, but I'm gonna stick to cars for now then have a look at motorcycles a little later on.

Matthew if you can find that drawing your g/f did, I would love to see it.

If its ok with you all im gonna narrow it down to a few pics that I like, then post them in this thread and you can let me know which one you like best, what you think the best car is e.t.c.

Many thanks for all your help guys, ill keep you posted,
