Antique "Motor-car" Art

Here we have a great old 3 page portion of a children's reference library, all about the new wave of the future in cars. And aren't they great? Nowadays, our motoring ability has gone far beyond what  had been dreamed of by the year of our pictures below. For your pleasure, we include both versions, the black and white we recreated digitally, along with a cleaned-up one of the existing patina. We hope you'll find reasons to use either or both.
Happy Creating!

I love the illustrations of the cars! They are so boy friendly, which is always hard to find. Thanks for sharing.

M.L.: We hadn't ever thought of it that way before. There might be a few other things for boys in the collection. We'll see what we can do in the next month or so. One project would be a few things for summer stay-at-home and vacationing moms for their kids. So we'll be looking into that shortly.

Thanks for the feedback! it always is good to hear from our visitors!
