Because old cars should be used for something other than putting poor Shia LaBeouf in a state of constant peril, a Torrance dude packing a business degree and a kinda-crazy auto fetish is making totally functional home accessories and gear outta collectors' parts destined for the dump, though hopefully they won't eventually end up in the
Michael Bay. Among the most awesome:
1. A two-part clock, made from a 1970s Michigan license plate, with the two pieces connected via recycled engine sprockets, which Mike Myers would pronounce HILARIOUSLY.
2. A totally customizable, steampunk-ish bracelet stamped with Ford's calling-card FoMoCo, and featuring ends that look like pieces from a puzzle -- perfect for when you need a little extra Edge while Escorting chicks to Fiestas. Taurus!
3. Cufflinks made of Ferrari piston rod bearings, stamped with the part number and car-maker's logo of a prancing horse, also the name of a basketball shooting game that takes over double the time to play.
Dude also does custom ish, and's gifted his products to the guys who run the car companies he plunders, although he couldn't give them the greatest gift of all: no more Transformers films.
