Love, Inertia, and the Pursuit of the Perfect Stance


Found out about this from MSM. Have a look at the video. Obession, art, autophilia.

"Love, Inertia and the pursuit of the Perfect Stance" is a project that celebrates the pursuit of a dream and our long romance with automobiles. It is a story about a labor of love that honors craftsmanship and the gratification that comes from customizing a piece of history into a work of art. Over the past 3 years I have been meticulously transforming a 1963 Ford Falcon Deluxe Club Wagon into a fully street-legal sculpture..." Shawn HibmaCronan
