Hot Rod Art I bought at the swap meet Sunday

Art is in the eye of the beholder. Many people made comments about this piece sitting in the back of my truck. Most were “WHAT”. One guy tried to buy it from me for the nostalgic FENTON shifter handle. I said no, because the guy that built this has a 57 Chevy wagon, tilt nose etc. that used this shifter before it became art. I have know the car since 1974 and it has always been one of my favorites. He told me that he got the car out of a wrecking yard in Pocatello Idaho, late 60’s. It sat on top of another car and the junk yard dog lived in it, so he first had to evict a mean junk yard dog. How could I give up a treasure from this cool hot rod. He still has the 57 and to me this is art and it’s not for sale.

Man bites dog

Is a half eaten onion dog "ART"? Or is just an uneaten hotdog?

You can't go to San Francisco and not take a photo of the ladies. There was so much construction, this is the only photo you can get without a dumpster
