Weekly Photo Challenge – Transmogrify

transmorgrify-1Scottsdale, Arizona.

This week, Michelle W. suggests that we focus our challenge images on change; specifically “Transmogrify”. From the challenge post, “…transmogrify, which means, ‘to change in appearance or form, especially strangely or grotesquely; transform.” You can view the entire challenge post here.

It’s been a busy week for me, this post is a day later than usual in part because I’m getting ready for a trip to Maxwell AFB to complete a four-day training for Civil Air Patrol. But I digress…

The opening photo shows a transmogrification of the rear end of a 1959 Cadillac into a living room couch. It could easily be one’s opinion that this transmogrification is strange or grotesque, especially if it is found to be in someone’s living room.

transmorgrify-2The vehicle above has been only slightly transmogrified, and it’s but one of many examples of custom hot rods featured any year at Barrett-Jackson’s auto auctions. I don’t know the specifics of this vehicle, but I sure know it’s not stock.

transmorgrify-3My final example for this week’s gallery is a pickup truck designed by Dale Ison. The Heroes Truck’s awesome paint job features a tribute to American heroes. The custom truck is based upon a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado pickup. It sold at auction in 2013 for $209,000.

  1. Since I don’t do those Weekly Challenge Posts, I do like the one with the 59′ Cadillac rear end. Would be a real nice conversation piece for my home! Always did love the “tear drop” lights on the 59′ Don’t think I could afford one of those!
