Rusty Cars

Roger and I both managed to do a little picking last week, but Roger is the only one who managed to get his act together to take pictures, so you get to see some more mantiques! This is the front end of a 30s-something truck. He dug it out of a pasture down by Beaumont, Kansas on Friday. Now, he gets to figure out what to do with it! I suggested a chair, but that kind of freaked him out. He's not really an upholsterer. Might end up as a desk! For now, it's sitting in the driveway that we don't park our cars in. In front of the garage that we don't park our cars in.... (I will become more bitter about this as the weather gets colder, and I have to start scraping my windshield every morning.)

This is also a piece of an old truck. Just a smaller piece. The sellers of the first one threw this in for free, since Roger drove all the way south of nowhere to pick up the other one. I'm sure he'll come up with spectacular new lives for both of them!

Linking up with Her Library Adventures and Apron Thrift Girl!

How interesting it is for me to see this post, my mind wouldn't even think about making something out of parts. I hope you will share with us how you and your husband use these parts.

These are great. Alittle store near me sold one just like it for about $350 recently. A steal.

Took a peek at several of your posts - must say your husband is an artist and reclaiming the rusty and worn out and transforming them to 'like new again'. Nice thrifting finds.

These are so different, can't wait to see what you do with them.
