Anyone Want A Chevy Couch?

Just perusing through Hemmings before bed and spotted this:
For 5,500 bucks is this Chevy couch a marvel in home decor, or some junk that belongs in an art museum? Personally, I think it's cool, but I have nothing that matches with it.
Sorry for the two posts in a row, but I couldn't pass this up.
Goodnight for real.

@taylor-martin Because we can maximum overboomer this aesthetic, the room it's in will have:
- A pool table
- Barstool seats
- Pinup girl posters, old car posters
- A jukebox
- A route 66 sign
- Motorcycle parts as decor
- Something Marilyn Monroe related
Among other things.

@cb There's a pizza place near where my grandparents lived that had a '57 Chevy couch - you're more correct than not...
(pictures borrowed from the web)

I think we all know this will wind up in some boomer's man cave, and that he will inevitably yell at his grandkids for sitting on it.

@boxer_4 Ah fuck I knew I forgot the neon lights! Also a picture of James Dean somewhere.

I’ve seen several different versions of these couches. It would be hard to find a room where they would look right outside of a rec room where the overall style had been chosen with this as the focal point.
I just can’t imagine spending $5500 for any couch anyway so I won’t need to worry about that.

As someone who's into cars and furniture design I think this is just cheesy and not even museum worthy. Maybe could fit some 50's style diner/bar?

@cb There will be a copy of Edward Hopper's Nighthawks:
Possibly (likely) the version where the subjects have been replaced by James Dean, Marylin Monroe, etc.

I love it, but suspect the bumper and exhaust tips might make for an uncomfortable seating position.
Brand new and made here in Wisconsin.
I hope that means they didn't chop up a real car for this.

@cb If it has barstool seats, my guess is it'd need a bar too haha

@taylor-martin I wanted one of those for the basement rec room so badly when I was a kid, but they were just as expensive in the '80s/early '90s as they are now, so obviously my parents were not going that route for something mainly used for playing Nintendo. An old set of heavy wood This End Up furniture would have to do.
