If you’re like Eric Clapton, who sang about ’57 Chevys in the song “Rock ’n Roll Heart,” Brian Pearson has something you might appreciate. He puts a new clock inside an actual headlight bezel from a vintage 1957 Chevrolet. Of course none of these original-equipment bezels are in mint condition, but they’ve been cleaned up and the non-chrome areas have been repainted. The $60 that Pearson charges includes one AA battery. You won’t find this item on any Web site, but you can contact Brian Pearson directly on his Facebook page (search: Brian Pearson rescued rust).
