You know, that car

Amanda sent in THAT CAR to us, and immediately upon it's arrival I spit the contents of my mouth all over the laptop screen. It's *that* car. Let's zoom out, shall we?


There, that is better. Now you can see the bullet holes in the doll heads stacked on the roof. [wtf?]


You know, that car that has all those skeletons hanging from the front bumper...?
... that car that has flaming headlights? A Shrek doll hook ornament? And is that a bobble head?
... that car with shells super glued to the hood?
... that car that is making ever child in this photo clutch their mothers, scared and confused?
... that car with all the DISMEMBERED BABY DOLLS?


Yes, that one.


A car like this doesn't need a vanity plate, it needs a lobotomy for it's owner.

Two words. Highway driving.

Getting behind this guy at high speeds would be a nightmare requiring years of intensive therapy.

I understand the desire to be unique and creative with one's car, but maybe they should have rethought smoking their own shoelaces before raiding their local dollar store for decorative ideas...

Whoa - what a nightmare! Reminds me of the Animal Lady's car with all the tiger stripes I was looking at with LadyStyx.

And the best part....this deLIghtful car was at a children's event. I have warm fuzzies remembering it...

Please guys, check out the concept of "art cars". "That Car" is NOT the isolated product of too many incinerated and inhaled shoelaces. Me, I love them...though yeah, I'm not that fond of this particular example's aggressive morbidness.

Well...at least the plate didn't say DOLLMAN or JUMPIN. It's, uh, interesting and the plate is tame. Bet he can't go through a car wash!

Thank goodness they put that plate on there. There are so many cars that look just like this one out there that drivers might accidentally try to get into the wrong car.

*laffin* Leave it to iggy to bring up the one car that pupped into my head when I saw this one. I'd be hard pressed to decide which of the two was tackier. N/m , this one wins. I can at least tolerate looking at the other one.

I live in Columbus and have seen this car in person. I LOVE it. The owner is super nice, too, and was working on pasting some model cars to THAT CAR.
My only gripe is that he sometimes lights big incense sticks on it for art events, and I was dancing at a shop next to where he parked. The smell was a little overpowering.

That Car said...

while many folks immediately think morbid....the doll heads are an American version of Día De Los Muertos. Either way, artcars lighten the mood on the roadways. H3llC4t - sorry about the incense. for more pictures of That Car and other artcars, check out www.flickr.com/thatcar

this picture from the same event shows that children don't see the morbid side that some folks like to see. http://www.flickr.com/photos/thatcar/2702468770/in/pool-westerville/

I know the owner of That Car...great guy. I've known him for over 25 years. You'd be surprised what you can do with a little silicon caulk -- he rarely loses a piece.

Wonderfully fun car; great guy.
