OLIV3R from Top Gear

I just came across this sketch I drew last year, and thought I’d post it. I had been working on some car designs for a show I’m creating when I watched the Top Gear Botswana special. In the show, Richard Hammond bought a 1964 Opel Kadett which he ended up naming Oliver (I also had a kitten named Oliver so the name is kinda special to me too). The character that Hammond created for the car set my imagination going and I created this little design:

Edit: I just realized not everyone will know what the original Oliver looks like so here’s a couple of pics. Oliver in Botswana (driven by the Stig) and the restored Oliver with Richard Hammond.

If you haven’t already seen it, you can catch the Top Gear Botswana special on the season 10 DVD…
