Can you think of a better use for old soda cans?

Work of the great, late, “Dave Big Deal”

Dave, a Huntington Beach local, used to go to all the public functions…especially the picture theatres. He always carried a sugar bag to collect empty bottles and cans.   His real name was Albert (Tapper) Torney.  Everyone thought he was a bit eccentric and kids would tease and hassle him.  Then it was discovered that he sold the empty bottles but only some of the cans.  After he died in 1998 (aged 86), his large collection of model cars made from aluminum cans was discovered.   This goes to prove…”you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover” – or a sculptor by his sugar bag.   Here is just some of his collection . . . and quite amazing too . . .
