this is a franklin mint 1/24th scale 1930 caddy sedan. it was made to resemble a long abandoned car on an old farm that has been used as target practice by the locals.it has over 200 bullet holes. all of the glass is real glass that i laminated. glass bulbs in headlights and tailight. about as ugly as they get.

If that were a few decades newer it would match a few we found out here in the desert.

Good job.

Doesn't really matter. If "occupied", by the time they are located it's like King Tuts tomb.

Now Lake Mead, with the falling water levels, is another story.

That looks really good... very interesting and different. I must admit, when I saw the picture my first thought was "so that's where Bonnie and Clyde's ride got to..."

bestest,

Yeah. I can't wait til the water level drops enough to expose all the "stolen" cars and trucks of my clients ... business will get really busy!
