Hot Rods Drive Orthodontist's Office...

Orthodontist and car nut Dr. David Myers designed his Arkansas practice to resemble a 1950s diner/drive-in/service station.


Myers built all of the furniture by hand with his father's help.


A 1947 Mercury coupe fitted with a 1946 Ford grille and a surfboard roof resembles a woodie wagon and acts as the reception desk.


A 1956 Olds 98 and a pink 1959 Cadillac have been made into couches.


Myers' fondness for the work of legendary custom painter and pinstriper Larry Watson was the inspiration behind recreating Watson's shop as his private office.


Myers' office desk is a tribute to Watson's candy-and-white pearl 1959 Caddy.


Myers also tips his hat to his grandparents by incorporating a vintage Sinclair gas station in the treatment room.
