Cars as lawn art...

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by exshelby, Apr 17, 2012.

  1. Ive shown my 1928 Cadillac V12 Holden engined lawn art elsewhere here, and i put it out at a friends home, when i moved a few years back. My so called friend started selling parts off it, so im only left the the home built plywood V12. IMG_20170508_141625.jpg

    From when I lived in Yucca Valley - so I can say I owned a vintage roadster once: mybackyard1-12-07a.JPG

    I got the parts from the estate of an old-time drag racer, Charlie Hutson and arranged them in the back yard. I posted about it on the H.A.M.B. years ago; we figured out the rear was '30 Dodge but couldn't ID the cowl, which looked mid '20s. Front bumper was from a Jordan.

    My secret fantasy is to have in a corner of the backyard, an old rusted, half buried 1950's flat head V-8 engine with exposed cylinders. Somehow I think that might be cool yard art.

    That’s not yard art, that’s a good start for a hot rod.

    I know that I've told this story before but it still goes. That when I first bought the 31 A pickup I had no other place to store it than on the back patio. Well it didn't take long before the nosy neighbor called the county and complained. They came over and told me I had to move it. I asked them what, if any, ordinances exist regarding yard art. Since there were none, I told them that if I was forced to move it that it was going right in the middle of my front yard and that I would decorate it for holidays. Problem solved.

    Not whole cars, but my buddy, Rich, did some cool landscaping for me in trade for doing custom work on his car. Used parts I had laying around. 100_2055.JPG 100_2056.JPG 100_2057.JPG

    I recall an older man coming to my shop, asking me to look at his Cadillac.
    I queried as to what the problem was...He said "It 'broke down'..."
    This Caddy ^^^^ was what I pictured, just for a second...

  16. In the South we refer to it as "Yard Art", with the socially elite it is know as "Lawn Sculpture" .:D HRP
