Ever wanted to own a classic car? We sure have, so we set out to find a way to give you a piece of the most iconic classic cars, without having to break your bank. Here’s the story behind our vintage Mustang and Thunderbird key rings.
Then we scoured the eastern US for authentic parts, such as this section of a 1969 Mustang truck lid, pictured below. Using a waterjet (a tool which cuts metal with a high pressure stream of water mixed with an abrasive), we cut circular discs from the auto parts.

Then the prototyping process began.
Above is an early pewter prototype showing how the components fit together. The red disc is cut from the 1969 Mustang trunk lid pictured earlier.
After many iterations, we arrived at our final products: sterling silver steering wheels which proudly display a piece of your very own classic car. Each comes in blue, black, or red.
