Hey Mr. Cash...How do you title it?



Ran across this interesting rat on eBay today. It is currently for auction from a guy in Martins Ferry, Ohio.

If you look closely, this thing has a 1930 chevy cowl, 1960 Chevrolet Impala back sheet metal, and a 1935 International Truck grille shell.
The owner says the rear end is from a 1980's Chevrolet Impala, and the front end is out of a 60's Ford truck.

This car reminds me of the Johnny Cash song..."One Piece At A Time" (see side bar). It also reminds me of a classic novel...can you guess the one based on the following quote?
"It was already one in the morning; the rain pattered dismally against the panes, and my candle was nearly burnt out, when, by the glimmer of the half-extinguished light, I saw the dull yellow eye of the creature open . . ."

Hey....I like the guy's creativity...but I guess this thing has to "grow on you". If you are interested, click on the following link to learn more about the car or even place a bid! At last check the auction was up to $6100 and had not reached the reserve.
