Art & Inspiration Sitting and Rotting.............picture thread

  1. I have already arranged for a parts pick trip in the spring with the owner. Which one did you think is a Packard? I thought the yellow one was a mid 50's Buick and the upside down wagon was a Plymouth?

  3. Well I'll be darned, that does appear to be a 1956 Executive now that you mention it. I guess I will have to take the trailer and a young guy back with me. Thank you for the correction!

    With that 1956 Executive it seems to me that after its media blasted and primer coated over every panel we are just stuck with 500 pounds of scrap metal.

  6. Its great fun shooting holes in old vehicles.I am considering setting this one out front for yard art & mounting the sign that's my avatar on it. It probably needs a few more holes to really be viable? setting & rotting 014.JPG setting & rotting 015.JPG
  7. Yea, it looks that way but it's hard to say. I thought the ElCamino was just 2-300# of rust too, but after a little work there is a pretty good sized pile of bits which are way better than what I have started with before, and will hopefully find new homes. And a couple crawdads crawled out of it in the shop!

  8. I am a curious sort. What year/make/model do you guys think this wagon started life as?

    Most likely, multiple times over the years. Once the first shot is marked on it, any more come a lot easier.

    hoping I dont get in trouble for posting that photo, Is actually a model the guy created. Has a 1957 2 door hard top that looks more real then the truck. I know nothing about them, but thought they were pretty cool looking and fit this thread.
    I do not even know if they are plastic models or metal.

    Pretty realistic until you look at it closely.

    Wow, if it wasn't for the hood hinge slots, depth of focus, and upon close inspection, birch catkins to represent leaves, I mighta been fooled. A very cool model.

  23. I thought that looked like a model the first time I saw it. I was wondering what kind of camera made it look like that, then reading further confirmed it. That was a good job.
