I have a friend, Marty Martino, who besides helping his son build this Hemi powered 53 Studebaker Starlight, is building from scratch three 50s Dream Cars.
One is the Lincoln Futura. He built this before some years ago and also did a Batmobile version, but he has built another one.
The Futura is sitting in Bruce Elder's shop in Staunton, Virginia
This is the Pontiac Club de' Mer
This is the Chrysler Norseman. The original car is still at the bottom of the ocean inside the Andrea Doria where it sunk on it's way from Italy to the U.S. in 1956. It never has been seen on U.S. shores.
Marty is going to Tulsa to see the unearthing of the famous 57 Plymoputh this weekend. He hopes to draw some attention of an interested party who will back his Norseman project, the other Chrysler product below grade!
He takes photographs and draws to scale and then builds a mold. He also makes scale models from scratch like this 1/25 scale 54 Land Cruiser he made.
