1947 Pontiac

Rhett has transformed the hoods of many a vintage car into human faces that hang on the wall. A lady saw one in a client's home and inquired if Rhett would be interested in working his magic with her grandparent's 1947 Pontiac which was still sitting on the family farm out in Kansas. Her grandparents , every evening after dinner, had gone out to the car to sit inside where they could speak in their native tongue, German. "Yes, " was Rhett's answer. The car was towed to his studio where we then admired it for a couple of weeks and where Rhett could ponder how best to use the different parts of the car.
