Ernie Adams Dwarf Car

Monday, April 8th, 2013

 

 

Working on his property in Arizona, Adams is building cars. It’s hard to tell without another car for reference, but as you can see in the images above, 72-year-old Ernie Adams drives a very small car. Actually, the technical name is a “dwarf car,” a road-legal nearly-perfect replica of a full-sized car, and Adams built it from scratch. He’s been building dwarf cars since 1965 – all of them from scratch, by hand. Adams was apparently the first to do it.

A Dwarf Car is the end result of a dream Ernie Adams had. Ernie made his dream a reality by taking the design of early model cars and scaling them down to a smaller size.

At the insistence of excited fans, Ernie built a 1949 Mercury sedan Dwarf. This wide-bodied, low riding Mercury is fully decked out. With all its hand made chrome and amazing detail, people are awestruck at Ernie’s craftsmanship.

Here is a link to a Youtube video you might enjoy. It’s six minutes long.

It was recently pointed out to me that I have never used one of my own rides as the Cool Ride of the Week. I simply did not want to take advantage. Finally, after all these years, here is one of my rides. Presenting JerryandMary’s 1969 jeep cj5 (Peanut’s ride!) chosen as the Cool Ride of the Week for Apr 12, 2012. You can view this very cool ride and JerryandMary’s garage here.

Take care,
