Everyone here is in some way or another, connected to the basic essence that binds this group of NUTS together.
That essence is the common denominator in our vehicles - the wheels. They not only set the world in motion but are a necessity in today's world. Now that's a different story that they mean a bit more to us NUTS. It's not just a figure of speech when I call ourselves as NUTS. It's more of a metaphoric phrase to represent our extra love for anything with wheels.
We all have our own individual connect with these vehicles that we love. Some of us have grown up with them while others would have a nostalgic value for a certain reason. While not all of us have the money to buy actual vehicles of desire, we all do buy their scale models and have these that can take us down the memory lane every now and then. Ever wondered what goes into the making of these objects of desire which make us fall in love with them, put up their posters on the wall and drool over them?
A sketch is where the whole thing begins. It is just the first step. From a sketch to the final product that you see on the road, it takes a good deal of about 4 years to realize.
Automotive design is a term that most of us have heard of but do we have the right understanding of it? Why is it that you like a certain car over the other? Why is it that a certain vehicle gets you excited in a specific manner? Is it just the looks or is it the proportion? Maybe it is a certain stance the vehicle carries. Maybe it is the belt line or the shoulder.
These are all part of the design that makes a vehicle look like the way it is. We all have a faint idea of what automotive design is because we all talk about these small things knowingly or unknowingly when we explain our love or admiration for any one of these wheeled beauties.
