James Corbett wants to recycle your car into art. These works are carefully thought out and skillfully executed sculptures made from car parts. Not every part is easily recognized, even by experienced gear heads, but the pieces will be conversation art for any car lover. It’s odd to see animal sculptures from steel and aluminum, but they are there.

Implications - Sculptures made from recycled or found items found a foothold in the DIY movement that the recession inspired. To stand out within the niche, savvy artists made items sourced from similar pieces, such as a roadster made from car parts. These items appeal to ultimate fans and hobbyists as the ultimate collector piece.
