So recently enrolled into a junk yard build contest on Instagram. The condition of the organizer was that a vehicle be built out of junk and scrap pile every customizer has ( I am sure y’all agree, those piles keep getting bigger and bigger!)
Ready for takeoff.
It’s not very aerodynamic.
Testing the 6wheel drive.
My wheels have arrived. Some might think that the Silhouette is a fantasy cast. It is not. Bill Cushenbery built the Silhouette years before Hot Wheels made their first car.

Once thought to be extinct. The endangered Datsub in its natural habitat.
I freaking love this thing.
Today we have 2 WIPs and a ‘Murican DLM. I’ll start with the three wheeled Raptor.

Here are a couple strange ones I’ve been working on.
