Funny. Check this out: Art at Garage Bar While the exterior of the building was minimally changed, we couldn’t resist a few artistic touches. Local artist Monica Mahoney was commissioned to paint a large sign facing Clay Street and a large sculpture was installed along Market Street. Jonathan Schipper: Slow Inevitable Death of American Muscle It’s hard to miss the slow sounds of inevitable destruction coming from the sculpture outside of Garage Bar. The sculpture, a machine that advances two full sized automobiles slowly into one another over a period of time, simulates a head on automobile collision. Each car moves slowly and almost imperceptibly toward the other towards an inevitable collision. The Slow Inevitable Death of American Muscle acts as a commentary on our interest and excitement in action films, which often feature at least one spectacular automobile wreck. Cars reflect our own personalities and egos; when we see an automobile destroyed, in a way we are looking at our own destruction. But these action packed moments are also invisible because of their inherent speed. Schipper’s work offers the viewer the ability to examine in three dimensions the collision of two cars. A moment that might take a fraction of a second in an actual collision will be expanded into days or months. By changing one of the key variables (speed) what was life threatening is now rendered almost static, allowing contemplation of our own mortality. Garage Bar Louisville
We had a 73 LTD 2dr. Darker green exterior, but the interior was exactly like this one. It had the 400 as well, but didn't have the oil filter hanging off the air cleaner. Would lay rubber an inch thick and a block long. I think dad traded it for a 78 Tbird around 83 or so.
