Here's a wonderful set of Flickr shots of the car drawings in Tintin next to the real cars by which they were inspired. A big reason I read Tintin as a kid over and over (and still do sometimes . . . ) is the "unabashed gearhead gnarlyness" of the drawings, to use a Diego Rodriguez/Metacool phrase. I was inspired to search for this because of this post from Metacool with an image of the Carreidas 160.
