This afternoon while out cruising around I just happen to stumble across what could easily be in the top 3 art cars that I’ve seen so far. I give you… the Lobstermobile.
The sign rubberbanded around his claw said that he was for sale. Just look at that face. He’s really got that pathetic “take me home, please” look down pat. Somehow I managed to gird myself against his piteous gaze and ride away. We don’t need a giant lobster, we don’t need a giant lobster, we don’t need a giant lobster…
More interesting art cars that I’ve seen on the road:
The number of wacky cars that we’ve been encountering lately is really starting to become comical. Is Long Island some kind of hotbed for art car activity? Will everyone soon be driving around in giant fiberglass highheels and riding banana bikes? If so, maybe I’ll finally start to love this place!
We saw this gem on a family jaunt tonight. Kung Pow Car! Hiyaaaa!
What…? What is that awesomeness that I spy over there at pump number one? YES! Why yes, it IS a hamburger car! Even Kenny cannot deny the greatness of the burgermobile.
Could this one really be it this time? Dare I say it? Best. Car. Ever?
When I came in from my ride today I said to Kenny, ‘You’ve gotta see the pictures of this car that I saw today. It’s only the best car, EVER!!!’
Naturally, when I make a giddy statement like that Kenny looks at me with a wee bit of skepticism.
I know, I know. I’ll admit that I do tend to get excited by, hmm, what are the right word… ridiculous pursuits? But this one really is the best car ever!
While pulling my pictures off of the memory card I excitedly called out to him, ‘Look! Isn’t this cool? A vegetable car!’
He sauntered over for a peek, blinked twice and turned around and walked back to whatever it is he was working on.
‘Why am I not surprised that you found that?’ he said as he walked away.
Looks like someone bumped him in the scallions.
Mushroom tailgate? Genius.
Admit it. You love it, too.
