    I believe this is some of his earlier work. His studio was in Port Costa during the 70's. Just west of Marinez...

    Very interesting art, kind of a surreal feel to it.

    The Teutonic Toy... HA! good one!

    Derelict... that photo you have is work by Clayton Bailey, a Port Costa artist still very active, and a former Studebaker fanatic. He owned 13 at one time, most of them bullet-nosed.

    I got a 40's vacuum cleaner sitting around the shop. maybe I'll put some wheels and a seat on it and some other old junk I got sitting around here.

    that's some cool looking stuff. it's cool how they look like they have some sort of purpose but are really just random junk bolted together.

    I love that sort of stuff. People who can take whatever article and make something completely different just blow me away. Great stuff.

    I like the way this guy thinks. I thought I was the only guy building crazy stuff in my garage out of old junk.

    that's pretty cool....i know that guy, i've met him through a friend and was invited over to his wharehouse. I never went though. They always have cool exhibits downtown at the historical society or whatever it is. Martinez is chock full of neat stuff-neat people. every once in a while i see it or meet them. The Teutonic Toy is cool....The Teuton is a German Knight. That's what that means. Also known as a Teutonic Knight. It was our school mascot in the german town of Inman Kansas where i lived once. The Inman Teutons.
