You should always try to draw the car to look like they look at their first-hand experience driving it,” he said.
Bennett said the biggest challenge, beyond drawing the car’s exterior and interior, is how to convey the dynamics of a Mustang. To that end, for the first time in history, the artist will use real-life images, such as a photograph of a Mustang that was taken on a snowy day in December and used as the foundation for the drawings.
Bennett said they will also capture the car’s personality as it goes along, including the Mustang’s unique character that is born from it’s history and history’s evolution.
“The reason you’re here is to understand our history. It’s important to understand our history. It’s important it be connected to modern day drivers,” he said. “We are part of the history of America. You must understand our history and what makes us American.”
To achieve this, we will put the Mustang to the test. As the car is driven over a range of varied road conditions, its body will respond to the forces of gravity, the wind, the weather, the speed of any individual on the road and the terrain in front by varying its shape.
“We’re taking over a very complex road and attempting to simulate these conditions and these effects on the car,” he said.
Bennett said he hopes the project will inspire people to get inside their own cars and look at the engine and the suspension.
“It’s about capturing your imagination. You can’t do it by saying you’re going to drive a lot of the cars.”

The city of Detroit may have just made a decision on how it wants to pay for the Detroit Regional Transit Authority (DRTA).
According to a Detroit Free Press report published Saturday, the DRTA is looking to pay back some $15 million that the state of Michigan had given the transit agency for years. The DRTA may also owe millions more to bondholders who were put in place before Michigan took control of the region’s finances during the Great Recession.
Last month, the DRTA and the Michigan Department of Transportation said they were “commingling” funds, leaving the state’s general fund open to liability.
The DRTA has until September 16 to come up with a plan to repay the funds. The
