Created by mechanic and artisan Dave Chandler of Dry Bones Metal Art, a massive Junkasaurus stands sentinel on FM 3240 at Texas Street Customs where old rusted hulks are restored to glory. Chandler fashioned the frankly fascinating stegosaurus from old vehicle body parts, found objects, tools, horseshoes, rebar, springs and gears and myriad other cast-offs, including a stop sign. The piece is even more intriguing close up. The Courier crew decided to take our obsession with the thing and ratchet it up a notch. So, "Merry Christmas to You" from Junkasaurus, the crews at Texas Street Customs, and the Courier!
