Ford knows that a lot of us are missing car meets and have had to come up with a lot of ways to keep ourselves, and perhaps the little ones we live with, busy over the past several weeks. A team of Ford designers has recently created some activity pages with a Ford-centric word search and some trivia quizzes along with some coloring sheets to help pass the time and keep those creative juices flowing.
The coloring pages are what got our attention. They feature great artwork by Ford designers of some of Ford’s most well-known models, including a hot-rodded ’32 five-window coupe, a highboy roadster, a chopped shoebox, a ’70 Mustang Mach 1, a pair of Broncos, and a GT40. We wouldn’t be surprised if there are lots of fierce coloring contests going on during some video conferences in the coming days.
In fact, we couldn’t help but giving it a go ourselves. We smoothed the hood louvers and gave it a hot rod red paint job with black scallops.
Infiniti offers a different option, with detailed “carigami” versions of its Q50, QX80 and FX models.
You can download the PDF with all three models here.
If you’d like to both fold your car and color it yourself, there are lots of paper models to choose from at PaperToys.com, including a 1955 Chevy Nomad, a Nash Metropolitan, a DeLorean, and a Lincoln Continental.
