Ali Kat's Custom Guitars Look Like Classic Cars Because They're Made from Classic Car Parts

This guitar looks like the tail of a 1959 Cadillac. That's because Dave Gartland, the custom guitar builder also known as Ali Kat, made it using Cadillac parts. It even has working tail lights!

Gartland makes a wide array of guitars, but it's his car guitars that have made him famous in the rockabilly culture. 

Do you fancy the classic style of a 1957 Chevy Bel Air

How about a mid-1950s Holdren Special? That's a car company in Australia, where Gartland lives and works.

Gartland also makes motorcycle guitars, including modern bikes. Although this looks like the rear end of a Ducati racing bike, it's a functional guitar on a custom guitar stand.

The Batmobile from the 1966 Batman series was a modified 1955 Lincoln Futura. Gartland's guitar version captures the shape and forms perfectly.

It plays well, too. Here's Chris Finnen using it to perform the theme song of the classic Batman show.
