WOW Gunn these are amazing. I assume you built them both from scratch. They would make a nice center piece for a junk yard Diorama.

Outstanding work!!!

Great work Gunn! I remeber when you got the idea for that one . Cool to see you finish it up. Now what car will be the first victim turned into the block? It should be a celebration complete with balloons, clowns, and a blow up jumping toy! Maybe a mob theme...Scarface Cadillac??
