This was the hit of the art car parade in Berkeley this year. It has to be seen/heard in person to be appreciated.

Go to to see more entries. There are some really astounding artists doing artcars.

More photos of the annual Houston Art Car Parade can be found at

It's an arms race; simply gluing some rocks or shiny things to your car will get you nothing but derision.

And just when you think you've seen it all, the Chia Bug drives by.....

just wondering what music they play on these parades.

Thanks filmgoerjuan - I just love art cars, and this one is a hoot..dejah and sardanista, those are some nice resources you threw into the mix too.
Here's a small site with a few more. Although it is not quite as funky, I have always been partial to this Texas labor of love.

azul: some of the video clips feature the car with the music playing. Songs have included the theme to "Jaws", "Bad to the Bone" and "Mack the Knife".

mjj, I met sir Gomez at the 1998 Orange Show in Houston - very nice fellow. The car is in his will to keep it in the family when he goes. There isn't a pic of it, but one of my fave entries that year was a red honda sedan that had nothing on it but a white coffee cup glued to the roof just over the driver's door. I wish I'd been at the '96 show to see this one.

I gotta build me an art car one of this days. Probably be the only one in Madison, CT.
