Don't be discouraged by the general misconception about being born an artist. Not that many centuries ago in Europe it was a trade that was apprenticed just like carpentry and auto mechanics are today. Learning to print and write is the very basics of learning to draw and anybody that applies themselves to it can become more than proficient at it. It is 40% desire and 60% hard work. Get some help from books on basic car or hotrod drawing and follow them diligently, leaving out nothing in the process. The more you apply yourself the quicker you'll see results but Chip didn't start drawing yesterday. If you are going to draw something you like find good quality art work to start with. The artists have already solved most of the problems in making the picture look realistic. Trying to draw from life is a hard place to start. I'll look up some good book titles for getting started and post them.
