British Student made Ford Mustang out of beer cans

5,000 beer cans and skilled hands made a recycled replica of Ford Mustang 1965.

Like all good students Jack Kirby collected his beers cans. Unlike most good students the art and design student actually found a use for them.

When he realised Budweiser was giving away his dream car, a 1965 Ford Mustang, he spent a month crafting this recycled replica. Kirby said: “I love Mustangs, and when I heard that Budweiser was putting one up for auction I didn’t want to miss out. I’ve got everything crossed that I win but if I don’t I have the next best thing – an exact replica built from Budweiser cans!”
