Art cars usually have a theme of some kind, whether it's Legos, Barbie dolls, golf, giant bugs, action figures, or a beautiful hellbeast of a motorcyle emerging from the depths of the sea.I spotted this car near my day job parking lot. Not sure if maybe it's not finished, the theme has not yet emerged, or it's there and I don't know what it is. To me, it looks like it was ejected from the back of a garbage truck and a bunch of stuff got stuck to it. Not that there's anything wrong with that... and art car is a vehicle of expression. Usually more extreme.

I would be interested in meeting the person or people who made this.

I wonder what was going on in their heads?

I have always had a desire to "artistically represent" my car as well. But, perhaps I am weird enough without advertsing the fact on my vehicle. ;)

Reminds me of the time I was on business trip in Austin (yep, your Austin), and looked desperately for a parking spot somewhere downtown. Found a great spot, which I could not figure out why it was open, right under a beautiful tree with cheeping birds...

...a couple of hours later, I returned to that spot and looked for the car, which I clearly remembered was red. Took me a second to realize the whitish vehicle parked under the tree was my car.
Those chirping birds, well, must have had Mexican food for lunch or something.

Looked a bit like this art car - and I got a lot of attention all the way to the carwash place.. ;-)

I have parked in that exact same spot. And yes, they had Mexican food for lunch. Grackles are famous for snagging tortilla chips, and they don't mind if there's a bit of salsa on them.
