Never judge a book by its coverUPDATE It appears we were misled. The real creator of these cars is here.
07/24/12 He used to go to all the public functions...especially the picture theaters. And always carried a Sugar Bag to collect empty bottles and cans.
His name was... Albert (Tapper) Torney. Everyone thought he was a bit eccentric and kids would tease and hassle him. But it was discovered he was very talented and only sold the empty bottles and some of the cans.
After he died in 1998 (aged 86) His large collection of Model Cars he made from the Aluminum Cans was discovered.
This goes to prove..."You Shouldn't Judge A Book by its Cover", or a Sculptor by his sugar bag.
