    Last weekend, my buddy forwarded this to me and asked if it was real or Photoshopped. If it's real, someone spent a lot of time cutting up a nice 57 Belair. What do you think?

    Hopefully, it's leftovers from other cars. There's been lots weirder stuff than that on here, plus there are no visible skulls, rust, or spider related items ...

    I would assume that there are not factory parts in that rod.
    I have seen several trikes as well as one two wheel motorcycle like this and they were not original.
    Not a bad looking rig, if you like that stuff...

    A definite ''conversational'' piece!....he nailed that fact big-time!----If I saw that on the road, I would look more than a 'double take' to be sure....I think it's actually kinda cool.

    They built a few 100,000 thousand, I don't see the problem.

    As a tri 5 guy, it appeals to me. These cars aren't exactly hen's teeth.

    Love my 57, might do this a bit different, but cant say that I hate it. Seeing what was used to make it, looks like that was the best use of it as well. far better than making a couch

    I think I'd rather have a couch.

    Edit: Didn't take the pic, just attended the show. Credit to the photographer is on the photo.
