    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.

    Yeah, Tom, I have a pretty extensive Allis collection myself. Cottonwood is about the only source for those letter series Molines!

    Nice work.Is that a Cottonwood Acres model?  Don't know if you are near this guy, but he does a lot of farm toys from scratch with brass. Mostly Allis though. Armand's site

    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.

    Saw a F350 posted on another forum, and thought of this build. Can't post the pic though.
     
     
    Let's see if it works now.

    Sorry I gave it away.  Full disclosure: I work for Mercedes, and I've seen many of these in the employee parking lot in Germany.
