Collective Memories: Fireball Finds Early Automotive Passion

Above, Fireball Tim Lawrence ignites his passion for car culture playing with a mixed batch of 1/64 scale cars circa 1970. Not long after that, in the early 1980s, Lawrrence would begin a career as an illustrator, designer, and Hollywood concept artist. He has published several books including coloring books to inspire another generation to embrace art and car culture. Perhaps best known for his work on the 1989 Burton Batmobile, he sat down with the MCHOF for an interview recently. We’ll publish that article soon!
