(RareCarMarket.com) – In a world where many attempt to replicate or restore classic cars, one man took it a step further. He makes classic vehicles in a unique way. In fact, he even used an old refrigerator to create his first one — but that doesn’t even begin to describe the extent of his skill.
In the heat of Maricopa, Arizona, Ernie Adams does something no one else does; he creates exact replicas of classic cars… all from scratch. His prized gem is a two-door 1949 Mercury coupe he calls the “Rebel Rouser.” While all his 11/16th scale creations are awe-inspiring, the original may be the coolest.
Adams admits his first replica isn’t an exact match, but it mostly resembles a 1928 Chevrolet. This crafty designer builds the majority of his autos from mostly sheet metal. Yet, the dwarf car aficionado didn’t create the ’28 Chevy totally from scraps; the craftsman started with an old refrigerator.
Adams doesn’t just make these vehicles; he loves them. Not even a $450,000 offer on his ’49 Mercury could shake his loyalty to his art. Adams and his family have also established the Dwarf Car Museum, where people can visit his constructs and examine them closely. They can also meet the legend himself. These cars might be little, but they’re a giant hit among car enthusiasts and collectors.
