Cars - A Car-Toon (c2000)

As a side project - Mick created a Car-toon. This started in 2000 and could possibly be the inspiration for a big budget movie...Ha, ha!   You see he believes (vehemently) - That the most fun vehicle to drive is a 1973 VW camper van - and get this - with an underpowered 1600cc Beetle engine ...  Ya - he is crazy that way - In fact the only other cars that come close to his specs are possibly a 1978 first generation CIVIC or a 1975 Super Beetle.  Thus we have his Car-toon... A cool thing about this Car-toon is the medium - Mick uses his trade mark - old fashion pen and ink (nib in permanent black spider ink) to create these wild beasts of burden.... Oh yeah this Car-toon has been featured in the long defunct Imagine Magazine... Enjoy. Note: All characters are products of the artist's imagination and are used fictitiously. Any resemblence to actual events or persons is entirely coincidental.
