I acquired this fine chassis recently and since the engine was frozen solid and it had such good rubber on it I decided for the time being it would make for a nice piece of yard art.
The headlight are lite by small solar yard lights which give a nice eerie appearance for people driving down the street at night.
What other T yard art is out there?

You should put a "Ran When Parked" sign on it. :-)

Here is our "Old Rusty" as we call it, out by the end of the driveway. It has a fairly large Maple growing out of it, and into it. It was built from parts that I just couldn't get myself to scrap. It keeps getting added to over the years. It started out as just a chassis. A couple of years ago I also built a lighting system that is solar powered and comes on at night. I used flickering amber LED's so that it looks like it is barely alive. The tail light is lit also.

I drive some of my yard art. Lights work but one lens has a nice looking crack in it.

Dang, my wife would divorce me if I had any "yard art" in our yard, not to mention the notices and citations form our home owners association.

This isn't exactly yard art but I made this for my patio.

Cool thread!

This gives me an idea. I have one of those motion sensor flood lights over the garage that shines on the driveway. It would be neat to take an old headlight bar and headlights, then modify them into floodlights and add a motion sensor. Then mount it above the garage doors. Hmmmm, have to think about this....

I have, occasionally, considered creating some yard art. I have not as yet for two reasons:

1) I'm not sure how the local Code Enforcement Department (the Pretty Police) would regard it.

2) I fear that the Roving Scrappers would appropriate it.

That's when you hook up a lawnmower battery and a couple coils to it and tell One that you can't move it because it bites (invite the enforcer to try it) and also watch the fun when Two shows up.

Wandering off topic a bit... but it is re-purposing of model T parts. When I restored my blacksmithing forge I used an old brake drum to hold the coal in the center of the forge. It works very well.
