Oops! I drew my old Chrysler SO long ago and somehow forgot to get it into the rotation here... so I guess I get the day off today. I bought this car with only 60k on the odometer and had some big plans for it, but ultimately I decided that I want a car that I'm a little more passionate about. Sold it off a few months ago and now I'm shopping for a clean-enough 1960 Cadillac coupe.

WIth all of the hype over the Tesla's falcon wing doors, I wanted to reflect on the original gullwing door, made popular by Mercedes on their early 1950's race cars. While of the 300SL production line churned out mostly silver and white bodies, a few special order colors survived the test of time. Check out this cyan beauty. Not a color I would have chosen, but it sure is beautiful now!

Another hard-to-find model today. It seems like every modified Echo has two extra doors, but finally I happened across the Instagram page of Team Echo PR. Echo, echo, echo... (see what I did there?) Now don't everyone go at once, but all the Echo photos you could ever want are at @_teamechopr.

Every day I post a sneak peek of tomorrow's illustration. If you are like @omar3ito then you will guess every day until you win five times, then you get your own car drawn. Today we celebrate Omar's victory and take a moment to appreciate his indestructible workhorse regular-cab five-speed T100 longbed. I had one myself, and just like Top Gear proved, you can't kill a Toyota truck even if you try.
