1920 Maybach Spezialrennwagen

1920 Maybach Spezialrennwagen

This is a sketch that I did from a photo I took in Sinsheim Germany, at the Sinsheim Auto und Technik Museum. I thought this was a great car – all polished metal with a brass radiator, and a single cyclopean headlamp. The car was powered by chain drive to the back wheels and did what must have been a gobsmacking (at the time) 200 km/h. No seatbelts, airbags, vestigal windshield – what a machine.

    • Thanks !

      The way I started blogging was just to promise to do a minimum number of posts a week… (I don’t always make it!) – and then I “publicize” the posts through my facebook page and twitter…

      Getting started and keeping on it is the key though – cheers – Bruce
