Where to find car images and plans
Because a majority of us don't have sculping skills, our car is going to be made by applying
logical steps and techniques. It will, therefore, only be as good as the plans and photos we
base it on, and because I don't expect you to be a sculptor, we're going to cheat once more

drawings to our photo textures in combinaion.
