    I stumbled on this video during a late night bout of insomnia. I'm sure many of you may know of Ernie Adams but this was e first I've ever heard of him and his work. Pretty cool!

  4. I couldn't believe the details in those dwarf cars. How he can envision what he wants in his head then using scrap material to create a dwarf car is truly a gift. Can you imagine seeing & hearing one of his creations going down the road?

    That's incredible. I'm a sucker for anything miniature. I work with a fellow from out that way. He's never mentioned this, and he's a car guy. Got to ask him if he knows about it on Monday. Thanks for posting, way cool. Ken

    I don't remember details of the engine, but it's a toyota or something like that. I talked with him at the back to the '50s, and couple of days latter he was at our local cruise night!!! Great guy to talk to! Usual answer to the obvious question....I just do it.

    I bought a T shirt........but it was to small:eek::p
     
  17. There are a lot of talented builders out there but to do a complete car from scratch is amazing. The Merc and the 42 Ford look so exact.

    Saw the 41 ford at the Pavillions car show during Barrett about 4 years back. Got to talk to Ernie at length, very interesting man and incredible talent. He says he gets bored and goes out to the shop and builds something. Cool guy!!!

    Just out of curiosity, why would this be deleted? I can't see anything OT about it.
