Saturday morning I was looking out my front door window, watching the parade of cars go past our cul-de-sac on their way to my neighbor T-bird’s garage sale. Suddenly, the above sight caught my eye.
First I gaped . . . and then I grabbed my Nikon D700 (with the Nikon 35-70mm lens attached) and ran out the door. My first thought: Great blog photos!
The car, which had jewels, rocks, toy figures, and more glued to its interior and exterior, stopped at the garage sale, giving me a chance to snap a bunch of photos.
I’m not sure how the car’s owner drives without being thoroughly distracted. The Toyota’s interior didn’t have as much junk glued on it as the exterior, but I did admire its cluster of Mardi Gras beads (which would be popular with our many Louisiana natives).
Just look at the beautiful rocks glued on the dashboard among the toys (don’t think I’d want to be stuck near the creepy Burger King, though)!
The owner told me that he’s been working on the car’s interior for about a year. Looks like it’s still a work in progress.
The exterior, which the owner said he’s spent about five months remodeling, features a plethora of signs. Many of them spout the words of wisdom of Willy Wonka.
I think that sticker that reads “Normal people worry me” explains everything!
My favorite part of the car is its roof. There’s so much to look at!
I like how the toys are intermingled with glass objects, like the dragonfly on the paperweight above. Gives the car’s roof a true eclectic feel.
So what did the car’s owner walk away with from the garage sale? Just another “Monsters vs. Aliens” character to add to B.O.B. on the dashboard.
So is it a junk car or an art car? Maybe it’s both. One thing’s for sure: The altered Toyota definitely is a head-turner!
