Hot Rod on Ice

The people that live behind me have a hot rod on the concrete pad where the house's detached garage used to stand. This car, as you can tell, looks like somebody's pet project. It has a nice paint job, complete with flames on the sides, but is in an unknown state of repair.

Now, we've had a wild winter, with lots of windstorms. After each one, the blue tarp (which =never= stays on the car, I'll point out) is worse for wear. At the beginning of the winter, it had a small hole over the engine; now the tarp threatens to rip itself in two. As you can see here, the tarp is tenuously attached to the car. Days or weeks after a storm, someone mysteriously pulls it back over Ol' Yeller.

I don't know what kind of car it is (the make or year). Or even if they'll ever finish it. But we're taking bets on when the tarp will be done for.

Given the wind we've been having, I say a couple weeks, tops. :)
