    I guess Art section even though it deals with Car parts

    See tons more at: James Corbett - Car parts art - NZHondas.com

    These items below were all fabricated from junk 1950 and 1960 automobile parts by a gentleman in Argentina.

    The captions are in Spanish (translated), but the pictures tell it all. Check out the Spark Plugs!

    James Corbett uses remnants of old cars of the 1950s and ' 60s.

    This is the man that converts parts of cars scrapped sculptures worth thousands of dollars. The Australian artist James Corbett, 46-year-old creates these sculptures using salvaged old car parts.

    One of the pieces, a ram of spark plug, sold for a whopping $23,000

    His sculptures are made of gears, spark plugs, exhaust, radiator, anything that the artist can achieve.

    After spending weeks dedicated to locate suitable pieces, James meticulously cleaned every part and welds them together.

    He said: "I was working in a warehouse of scrap and type I know, that ran races stock cars, showed me a Trophy winner fact with levers of change." "I looked at it and I thought that I could do a much better job so I started making my own sculptures."
