Pot Metal Rocket

Pot Metal Rocket 1960 Plymouth Fury fin at Big M. All the MOPAR cars from this era are notorious for their failure-prone chrome-plating and you can really see it here. Not just a few pits here and there, every inch of this piece is heavily frosted with barnacles. Makes a nice texture for pictures tho. […]

The Windy Bull Been wanting to do one of these frontal treatments on a first generation junkyard Toronado for a while now. Usually the front pieces are the first parts to go, cuz they’re so year-specific and rare. I like this one, the ’70, the most because of how those quirky inboard quad-headlights make the […]

Cranbrook Ghosts

1951 Plymouth Cranbrook. Another barn find at Big M, John had just trucked it in that day from some farm in the valley. It was a beat up, rusty old bomb, with almost all of its chrome gone. These are the left and right front fenders, just behind the front tire. I like it’s delicious […]
