If you were to make it in fiberglass or something like that. To make it with real parts, it is just WAY too expensive. I put about $550 in this over ten years ago and that was paying only $75 for the quarter and bumper. So realistically if you were to pull a mould off this one and have a bumper cast in aluminum or something like that. But even then, the cost would go up pretty quick.

Ray, the photos aren't going to show you much, I didn't do a "how to" or anything like that. My scanner is screwing up, but at the very least I will try to take a picture of the pictures with my digital camera.

how much you think that table would go for on e-bay?

great work btw do you have any other stuff like that? I saw once the same rear end but they took the trunk lid off and made it into a couch, then I saw it again while watching the show SCRUBS. Awesome Idea Id love to do it myself sometime!

If you watch OverHaulin regularly, they have either a '57 Chevy car couch or a '50 Merc car couch on the show somewhere in the background. There are places that make them out of fiberglass, but they are around a couple of grand apiece.

Yeah, this is cool deco, just as it was a couple of years ago when this post originated. It is worthy of revival though. This also makes me think of the kind of stuff a single guy has before he gets married and then once he gets hitched up it gets exiled to the garage with the beer mirrors and velvet paintings. Unless, of course, he's got a really cool wife!

When I met my wife I had this in the living room, and framed prints of WWII war birds and a strange set of prints that made a montage of fifties cars. A restored vintage condom machine in the bathroom, a print of Marilyn Monroe laying naked on a bed over my headboard, and a number of other similar things. She never asked for a single thing to be changed. She moved in with me and it all stayed, I even restored a 1957 JC higgins ladies bike for her which we displayed in the hall way!

Now mind you, she is not a car nut, far from it. But she knows I am, so she enjoys the stuff "with" me. All those things stayed after we moved twice, and even into our home we bought. It wasn't until then we decided to put the prints out in the garage (with a few saying in the laundry room) and just the table remains in the living room.

I'll get some photos of the garage!

Brian
