    OLD CANS!

    He used to go to all the public functions...especially
    the picture theaters.
    And he 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.
    Then it was discovered that he sold the empty bottles
    but only some of the cans.

    After he died in 1998 (aged 86) his large collection
    of model cars made from aluminum cans was
    discovered.

    This goes to prove..."you shouldn't judge a book by
    its cover" - or a sculptor by his sugar bag.

    Some of his collection ----

    Aren't they just Sci! The detailing he's done is just amazing.

    I've seen these types of cars made from cans before but none have been like this....truly amazing craftsmanship!

    That's pretty incredible isn't it? The size of these ships now are enormous!
