Ouch, my hands hurt! Why or why did white 1962 Michigan plates have to made from thick steel...

40+ plates, 63 pieces and over 300 nails mounted on a stained red wood board comprise this 5-foot wide American flag. This reclaimed pile of discarded materials will live on in a proud owner's auto repair garage in Minnesota.


Pattern or design used: My own design - Design Turnpike
