Car on the Wall

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 15 January 2019 in Art & Design.

When my older son was a teenager, he saved his money to buy a car and the first car he bought was a 1964 Ford Galaxie. It was in pretty bad condition and he worked on it for hours to try and fix it up. It eventually totally broke down and he got rid of it. He always talks about his first car. My younger son found this front piece of a 1964 Ford Galaxie. He shined it up and mounted it on a piece of wood that he cut and polished. He gave it to his brother for Christmas. His brother lives in Miami and it was impossible for him to take it back there so guess where it got hung....my house! (In the basement) Happy Silly Tuesday!

This would look great on any wall. Very well made by your son. I wonder if you ever thought of putting lights in this? 5*

@Shaun: He wanted to add lights but ran out of time. It is a future project. He said he would like to somehow find original lights but I have a feeling that they might be very hard to find.

what a piece of memory..how touching ! I think he should have taken it with him !!Packed it well and sent it by a truck or something !! A symbol of love !

15 Jan 2019 3:28pm

@Devi: He lives in a small condo in Florida and has no place to put it. He loved it though and hopefully one day when they get a bigger house he can hang it up somewhere.
