I created several art cars over the years. Sadly, none of them exist today.
This was the final version of Alien Tubes the monster truck. It was built of fiberglass on a one ton Ford four wheel drive chassis. The 400 big block would cruise this piece of art at 80mph all the way from Florida to New York, Colorado, California, and everywhere in between. It was fun to drive!
The back of Alien Tubes was painted inside like a psycho-delic 60's van. I spent over 3000 hours on this piece of work.
This is Mantaray and an earlier version of the monster truck, the Green Dragon. The Mantaray is fiberglass skin on a 280ZX body. The whale tail and air dammed front end worked great for high speed aerodynamics.
Shaqzilla and Horace were versions when I was enjoying basketball in Orlando. Shaquille Oneill had
just begun his career and was fun to watch. Horace Grant was one of my favorite ball players because
of his rebounding tenacity...he did not quit under the boards and never got much recognition for his
I quit watching pro sports in the late 90's because all I heard was whining from owners and players about money...yeh how about those ridiculous ticket prices and $10 hotdogs...that's something to whine about!
The Computer Board art car was built on a Honda Accord chassis. The doors and the rear hatch were removed so it was fun to drive like a jeep. I welded in crash bars for some side impact protection. I drove this to work 25 miles a day on the I-75 for about 6 months.
Over 70 computers were dismantled to get the boards.
It took about 200 hours to make this art car.
