Just amazing and inspiring work, Frank. If you need a newer car, you can have our old Jeep Grand Cherokee. It's starting to look like it would fit right in with your other junk cars!

See'ya Saturday Jeff.

We needed more room in the scrap yard so Dave built an amazing 1940ís road grader to scrape for scrap. The kit consisted of 169 resin and etched brass parts. You have got to see it to believe it.

Also in the picture is my stack of a junk car and various parts.



I added this wrecked Ford Mustang. The front fenders and hood were made from foil from an aluminum oven pan. I burnished the new fenders and hood from the original plastic ones. Darn somebody threw a concrete block through the windshield.



A close up of the Mustang.



Hereís a pile of our patented concrete blocks. Theyíre laser cut from floral oasis foam and spray painted gray and then dusted with gray powder. The foam gives them that concrete look. Some of you Yankees call them cinder blocks but they havenít made blocks out of cinders for a long time.




Hereís my 1933 Plymouth on blocks. I was originally going to build it as a partially restored car but then the rust genie got to me and I rusted it out. I also cut out the fabric roof and covered it with a tarp.





This is an overall view of the scrap yard. Itís getting there, Iíve still got a 64í Corvair, 55íish Ford P/U and another old P/U cab.





Frank
