Rustic Challenge is a chess set created with discarded auto parts. Designer Armando Ramirez has transformed spark plugs into towers while sprockets for the base of each rugged piece. The horses' manes are made from galvanized wire and their bases are taken from a car's ignition. And the best part- besides being eco friendly, the set is also unique and a collector's item as there can be no other like it.
