Optimus Primed

The realms of wine-connoisseur-sophistication and world-destruction-blood-thirst haven't come together this brilliantly since Dick Cheney's last dinner party. From Craigslist:
For the discerning individual who appreciates artwork and wine - you now have a great opportunity to meld those together into one piece of artwork that will display your bottle collection like no other wine rack. This will make you the talk of your wine club, HOA, alcoholics anonymous support group, etc...

There are only several times in one's life when one has the opportunity to purchase something that is RIDICULOUSLY COOL. This is one of those moments.


6 feet
Weight: Approx 1,000lbs
Material contents: Used transmission parts from automobiles and motorcycles. There are even parts on the statue that are stamped with the "Ford" logo
Bottle capacity: 32 bottles depending on size of bottle.

All parts used to artistically weld together this stunning piece of artwork have been dipped into a solution to neutralize and remove any oil, grime, or chemicals to ensure there are no corrosive chemicals left. The entire piece was then painted gun metal grey and then clear coated.
I have to imagine this is a great purchase for a bachelor who's into hot nerds. And for someone with a place slightly larger than my two bedroom apartment. Damn it...

TJ with the assist.
