What do you get the car enthusiast who has nothing? We’ve got the perfect gift – a scale model Classic Wreck.
It may look like it’s meant to be displayed proudly on cement blocks on the front lawn, but Classic Wrecks are ideal for the underachieving man’s office or den. These junkyard-bound cars are 1/24 scale models that boast broken windows, bumps, scrapes and rusted and/or missing parts. A few of the beauties that have seen better days include a 1957 Thunderbird, a 1996 Chevrolet Corvette and a 1927 Lincoln.
Any man can buy a scale model 1960 Ferrari or Lamborghini Aventador (ok, maybe not that one), but it takes a guy who’s confident that he doesn’t need a flashy car to define his work ethic to display a Classic Wreck. And besides, at $40 to $70 per model, you don’t have to work long to afford one. You can buy one of these masterpieces on Esty.
