car parts in the house?

The Model T luggage rack as a light fixture.
It's in the downstairs billiard room, the main billiard room is in the North wing

My first Ferrari ran out of gas on me, so I had it crushed and turned into a coffee table.
since then not one Ferrari has run out of gas on me. Taught them a lesson .

Matt's Mopar powered A sedan

Nice picture of it. Turned out exactly as he wanted. I like the old wheels.
Double Z'd frame 1930 sedan 440 Magnum
"I was offered a shoot and a feature in rat rod magazine, but I'm on the fence if I want to go forward with it. Seems like they fill their magazine with junk and rolling death traps. Thats not something I want to be associated with. "
I'm sure Matt's quote will surprise or confuse some of you. But it's pretty simple.
A hot rod built upon one of my chassis' works well, drives nice, behaves super predictable
Not some crappy tie rod out front, bump steering, rattling shit box
It does not need fancy paint or chrome to be well built.
Matt's big horsepower sedan is well built.

15x4 the only size. I've wanted to a mismatched set of wheels on a car for a long time..
Maybe this is the way to go for my fronts..
