No matter how recherché or symbol of a marque’s impending extinction, there remains a certain point where one simply must give up. Battle scarred and compromised by rust, one of the few remaining Moretti 750 Tour Du Monde spiders has been exiled to parts car duty, never again to turn a tire in anger.
Still, in death – and rebirth – there exists beauty. The intricate patterns in the dry lakebed like paint, moonscape texture of oxidized steel, and a battered badge conspire to bring a new role to aspects of a now dead car – that of contemplation worthy art work.
