The strangeness of bike category-think.
Marcello Gandini is an Italian car designer born on August 26th, 1938, in Turin, the motor city of Italy. He developed a passion for cars in the early 1950s and quickly started sketching them in his free time.
Story has it Gandini’s sketches first came to life when a friend hired him to draw a new body for the OSCA 1500 Barchetta that he raced all around Italy. The stunning body that Gandini drew was later built by an experienced panel beater and bolted to the Barchetta’s chassis.
Michiganders Matt Marrocco and Adam Hubers have launched a Kickstarter project for their sketchbook and reference guide for budding auto designers. It’s called I Draw Cars, and it currently available for preorder with a pledge of $25 or more to their project.
