Ernie Adams, 72, lives in Maricopa, in the heart of desert country, just south of Phoenix, Arizona, and builds incredibly detailed, road-legal, roughly half-scale replica cars, by hand, from scratch, in his workshop shed.
He’s been building these amazing machines for close to 50 years, and filmmaker Jeff Diehl has made a documentary on Adams and his pint-size fleet, that includes classic American sedans and convertibles from the 1920s to the late ‘40s.
His first dwarf car was a 1928 Chevy two door sedan, using steel from old refrigerators for an authentic feel, and powered by a 10kW two-cylinder engine.
