This is a Scammell Pioneer. The few remaining patches of green paint suggest it was built during the war and used for tank towing or heavy recovery. Quite a rare thing apparently - but sadly probably beyond saving.

Cathy spotted this wonderful old truck near us. Once I'd seen it I knew I'd have to return to sketch it - which I did this morning. I invited fellow artist Martin Squires along too as I know he likes his commercial and farm machinery.

Such a beautiful car - not just the proportions but also the attention to detail - and of course the wonderful aero-engine too. Previously I've only managed a very quick sketch so it was nice to have a bit of time for something a bit more finished (as finished as my work gets anyway)
Whistling Billy is an amazing steam-powered racing car dating from 1905. A large patch of blistered paint suggested that it might recently have been 'On Fire Billy'! I wanted to have another go at this unique car (my previous attempt wasn't up to much)
The wonderful curved-dash Oldsmobile which Joy Rainey drove coast-to-coast across America this year. She was raising money for Cancer Research - find out more - and better still make a donation... joy-across-america.com
