Show Me your (Car) Parts
In search of wonderful ideas using old Car, Plane or other old Mechanical Bits..as well as works inspired by "Things That Go"
Call me "Lisa (Rick's my husband's name...thanks Family Facebook page).
I've been writing professionally for more than 20 years, but my first love is creating simple crafts and works of art.
I grew up in car and motorcycle crazy family, and learned early on every piece of vehicle, or other mechanical item for that matter, is a work of art in itself.
The purpose of my "tribal experiment" is to allow people to share interesting ways of upcycling old parts, show off their own artistic skills either using garage fodder, or creating completely new inspired by cars and car culture.
Show us what your kids made, too! Creativity comes in all shapes and sizes.

I'll share a few things myself, either ideas I've run across or, when I can, I've concocted on my own.
So, go ahead and show us what you can do with your "parts." We're all friends here.
