Today was one of those special days, where I found my way to Classic Wrecks, an Etsy store full of 1/24 car models, specially customized to look like the junkers we love to mourn.
The details have been painstakingly considered, in a matter only a true auto-lover could conceive. The pitted chrome, the missing trim, the jagged edges of each individual rust hole. Even the undercarriages of these jacked jalopies look like they need an overhaul.
What really makes these special are the cheeky extra touches, like to this '57 Chevy Nomad:
The classic Mexican Blanket seat cover.
|In case you couldn't tell.|
The models range in year from 1930 to 1990, with many popular make/model vehicles included, so you are bound to find something that revs your engine, or something special for gifting to a lucky rust-a-holic. With prices between $65-$75 each, and the option to request a custom Classic Wreck, they are truly some of what the best a site like Etsy has to offer.
