I love my fat grill from a 1960 Buick Special Rivera. It’s an issue, however, to blend it and other blocky shapes with the contoured / wind-tunnel shape of new cars these days. To solve this problem I’m making “curb-feelers” out of deer ribs to echo the grill’s vertical lines. I’m using deer ribs because this ArtCar is all about integrating machine parts & animal parts.
It’s a tricky fabrication. I’m using parts from old trophies so that I can extend the deer ribs out from the car body in line with the grill. Small hose-clamps secure the rib bone to the threaded rod.
I kind of like the Frankenstein / Herman Munster Mobile aesthetic that’s developing here . . . good for Halloween!
