Jerome, Arizona is about a mile high up a mountain located dead smack center of the state, north of Phoenix. The winding road up the mountain was a bit dizzying, and for someone like me who is afraid of heights, it can be frightening sitting in the passenger’s side looking down.
The views are beautiful, and when I saw an old rusted vehicle sitting in the valley, not only did it heighten my fear of heights, but it made me want to know the story behind the car.

Men and their toys… ya gotta love ‘em! Not only is this human-sized car his toy, but he added another smaller one to his collection.
Although I love the color pink and the Pink Panther, I couldn’t see myself driving around anything the color of Pepto-Bismol… but this is still a cool car! Even the inside is pink!
