Coaches, Automobiles, Trucks and Steam-locomobiles

These pages are just being started, so there may be (at the moment) only a few vehicles on each page area. However I hope to add to these over time and make is as comprehensive as my Royal Signals Vehicles Pages.

CATS = Coaches, Automobiles, Trucks and Steam-engines and is a mix of British and American terms, but spells the word CATS.

In American-English Coaches would be Charter-buses, and Steam-Locomobiles would be Steam-tractors

In British-English on the other-hand Automobiles and Trucks would be Cars and Lorries.

However I thought the abbreviation CATS would be easier to remember. And besides I like Cats (the four legged meow type) too.

I did originally think of Civilian Autos & Trucks to make the word CATs, but the use the word Civilian to differentiate from my Military vehicles drawings (See my
Royal Signals Equipment, Radios and Vehicles pages) might only confuse the visitors to this set of pages who did not know that I had first made the Military Vehicles pages.

In fact I only made these Civilian drawings to prove that those who said “I can only draw Vehicles if they are Ugly, or Painted Green,” are wrong... lol.

Drawings? I hear you say!

Yes Drawings, then I want them all to be at the same angle, and to highlight the details I think best reflect the memories of these I have.

I know some experts will criticize that the drawings are not quite right, then I have had “Rivet counters” tell me what they do and do not like (or insist is wrong) with my military drawings, especially when I have missed a hinge, or some other minor detail.

So for the experts who want to tell me the length of the Bonnet (Hood to the US viewers of this site) or Boot (Trunk in US English) is too long or short in relationship to the rest of the car or that the tyres are wrong for that particular make, I say, please do tell me, but do not insist (as some did) that I MUST make their corrections. If you prefer perfection, go look at the many photographs that can surely be found on the Internet with Google or Bing instead.

Here two links to a Photosearch Stock Photo source that may be of interest to car fans...

If you want to see how I make my drawings, look at the
Artwork pages Link on the list on the Left side of this page and then in that click on the How-2 pages...

I hope you enjoy, or at least find the site Interesting.

Due to the ever increasing size and complexity, the pages have been moved around a lot from Server to Server, and also the Layout and interlinking changed. This is the new 2015 Layout and will use two digit numbers to determine the sub-sections.

Previous e-mail contact tools I have used have proven unreliable, with only some of the contact forms entered received, or e-mails received.

For this reason I have now changed to throw-away e-mail addresses, and the actual current address can be found on the "Contact Petra” page

If you wish to contact me or make comments, etc., or would like to use the pictures on this site for your own home-page or any other use, then please use the "Contact Petra” page by Clicking this link.

To save you having to scroll back up to the top of the page to select the next one, etc., I have made a typical British roundabout sign. Clicking on the middle will take you to the main start page where you can select which site is of interest to you. Clicking on the left side will take you back to the previous page in this series or to the previous website (Royal Signals) accordingly. Clicking on the right side will take you to the next page in this series.

Some roundabouts in the UK have a name, making it easier to give directions such as “drive north on the A1until you reach the Scotch Corner Roundabout, then take the A6108 to Richmond...” Not every roundabout had a name, but when they did they were in an additional field over the main part of the sign. In my case I have called it “Petra’s Magic Roundabout”.

For visitors to this site who are not in or from the UK, you will find a special page on this site with a brief explanation and links to videos, web pages, Wikipedia articles etc., about the term “Magic Roundabout“ and it’s uses in the UK. It is the last page in this sub-set.
