Introduction: 1949 Allard M Wire Sculpture
I made this for my Dad who owned the car in Kenya in the 50's. I have been making sculptures for a while now and have recently started using wire, this one is special as Dad often speaks of his time in Africa an the mighty Alllard.
The two mufflers kicking out under the doors were "obtained " again from RAF stores they didn't seem to want them!.The originals snaked all the way to the rear and were unobtainable. The sound was memorable and when changing down the alternate backfires made the Askari on the gate to grab his rifle
A great present for me, one I shall treasure. Many memories of a great car which when we left the camp the cry " NONE SHALL PASS " could be heard
