(KMOV)—An O’Fallon, MO man has created a special car to salute veterans across the United States.
The car is called “The American Spirit”, and Scott Lewis created the masterpiece. Lewis completely took the 1971 Mustang apart, refurbished and reconditioned it.
It took him two years and spent $80,000 to create the car. The car is has specialty photos that portrays the history of American war veterans including the American Revolution. Some of the photos were from Scott’s collection along with other sources.
Along with the photos, the front bumper has a 24 karat gold inlay titled “A Tribute to the American Soldier.”
“The goal of this car is to remind Americans that freedom is not free and there is a price to pay to enjoy our lifestyle,” Lewis said.
He hopes to tour the country with the car and raise money for the Fisher House, a non-profit organization which helps disabled veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan suffering from trauma.
