Every time I pass through Paeroa I spot a bunch of funky old cars but never have time to stop. Finally a few weeks back I had the chance to stop and have a crack.
They range from the 'mint as' 1946 Mercury that appears in the service station window (with a bunch more I need to sketch one day). To the crusty DS Citroen and Borgward Isabella parked together with an equally rustic looking airstream style caravan in a back street.
Man they went overboard with chrome on the Mercurys didn't they — I didn't realise until I tried to draw them all! I guess they were trying to distinguish it as more upmarket product from a regular Ford. Quite a contrast between the shiny glistening Mercury and the rusty, crusty matt finish of the Borgward and Citroen but both fun to draw.
