This is not a brand new story, I know.....I was emailed this video and I enjoyed it greatly, hopefully you do the same!

This car was at a car show and stole everyone's attention away to this beautiful car!!

I am a car lover, this is absolutely amazing that someone can take the time to build whatever they want...

A regular person making a car out of scrap metal, a refrigerator door and 5 years of time (well spent IMO)

The video is a little over 6 minutes and well worth the watch!

www.varietyvideosllc.com...

It goes to show that normal people (with the proper tools) can make anything they set their mind to......You don't need all the money in the world, power, connections, etc.....

This is truly a masterpiece, and the video shows pictures of his process....

You won't respect this video unless you love cars......I am glad there are normal people that do things like this to prove to the rest of us the old saying....."You can achieve anything you put your mind into"

Well no conspiracy here, sorry
.......I just thought a good video of an average guy would put a smile on your face on Monday morning!!

Let me know what you think of this guys work.....Thanks for stopping by and watching!!

That is amazing.
It warms my heart to see there are still true American craftsmen out there.

It reminds me of the Nash Metro, but it was factory made. I have a cousin that likes to restore old cars and I sent the video to him. Thanks for showing something totally out of the ordinary!

Beautiful work. The amount of dedication to these kind of things is amazing. Definitely a labor of love.


It reminds me of the guy who built the table top replica Ferrari 312 fpb. Everything was hand built to scale.

He has talent, no doubt. How many clowns can fit in it though?

I've done some A's, a couple T's, A Caprice, and various other little projects, but never could I get something like that done! I wish I was that crafty!


Heres the second last project I've done, the one I'm most proud of, a 3 windowed wildly chopped '47 Chevy 1/2 ton. The cab started life as a cab over reefer wagon once upon a time.

Awesome little car!

I bet that 1.3L pushes it along pretty good, while getting good mileage as well!

Awesome... plus it has the same quality chassis as a real american car only with an actual reliable engine!


Stings apart... Very nice work

That's incredible! I'd definitely rock on of those little beasties as a daily driver.
Hopefully one day I'll finally be able to buy a house with a decent shed/backyard so I can build/restore a car, it's something I've wanted to do for years..

Incredible ingenuity, craftsmanship and a ton of hard work!

It's amazing what a skilled craftsman can do when he sets his mind to it. I'm afraid it's becoming a lost art though.

Too many people today can't even change a tire on their car without calling road service.

Great work.


It's good to see there are still people out there who have an eye for detail and the work ethic to see a project through.
