A 39′ Chevy was the car to have back in the early 40’s.  It had looks, speed and dependability!  Many were equipped with a simple straight 6 cylinder engine but could still go fast.

A real classic, 1950 Chevy “Bullnose” Pick-up

 Old Classic Cars have always fascinated me.  When I was very young,  I helped restore one of those “Metal Monsters” and I have never forgotten it.  Although I do not have any mechanic ability and don’t know a distributor from a generator, I love to build mininature cars.  Please dial up:  www.etsy.com/shop/classicmodelcars  for latest models for sale!

 

But there is a catch!

I build miniature classic cars like they may look after 50 years of wear/tear and abuse!  Rust, dust,  grime, greese, flat tires, broken windows, missing parts.  Just how realistic can I make this small miniature scale car look after it…

Remember how this Chevy looked back in the 1950’s?  If you’re old enough, you may remember riding or driving one just like this one.  At that time is was new, shiny and everything worked.  Think back on how that brand new car smelled when you got into it?

This car has gone through some hard times and will need a lot of tender loving care to look like it once did.  Check out other cars on this website as AZ Artist, James Roark, creates miniature sculptures of many of the old classic American cars.  Only thing is he distresses them to look old, neglected, rusted, beaten and abandoned!

Since wood was a primary building material during the 1800’s…trees had to be cut and hauled to the lumber mills.  The Log wagon was built very solid and sturdy to handle heavy loads.

www.etsy.com/shop/classicmodelcars

Many of these log haulers had adjustable centers where the front wheels and the rear wheels could be adjusted long or short, depending on the length of the logs.

 

     The log wagon required a large team of horses due to the trememdous weight and ruff ground they had to cover.

The Chuck Wagon covered a lot of ground through out the Southwestern United States.

 In those days there were many cattle ranchers who did not have all the modern

convenient transportation facilities of today. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So, hard riding, rough and tough cowboys had to drive large herds of cattle over

hundreds of miles to reach railroad transit stations.

 

 

After a long, tough day in the saddle, cowboys needed rest and more important…FOOD!

Hence the Chuck Wagon, a wagon that was fully equipped to provide hot meals for

hungry cowboys.  It had a large stack of shelfs in the back to accomidate cooking utensils

and supplies.

There was a lot of mining going on in the Southwest Desert during the 1800’s.  Gold,  silver, and copper.  Often the ore had to be hauled great distances for the actual processing and extraction of the minerals.

 

The ore wagon was built to haul                

heavy loads over a long distance.

The undercarriage had to be of

extra strength with thick side boards

 

 

 

This particular ore wagon has seen a lot of service.  Since the wagons were not noted for their color and design, they often went years without any care or maintenance.
