This would be a guaranteed winner at the Houston Art Car Parade (which is cancelled for 2020). The Parade has grown into a nearly week long events some of which are sort of normal and some are completely bizarre.

Wow, looks like there is a whole city on top of this vehicle, I am very much in awe of this art car. Sure, it kind of looks like random items glued on, but I am seeing a cohesive theme which makes this vehicle aesthetically pleasing to me. Thank you very much for sharing and what state is this vehicle in? I’m not seeing any suspension sag surprisingly.
Somebody CLEARLY had some spare time on their hands! 🙂
Very well done. I suspect the artist(s) are display or set designers. It would look great in a holiday movie. 🙂
If we could see thought bubbles like in cartoons, this is what 70s Eldorados, Lincoln Mark IVs, Thunderbird’s, Cordobas and the like would appear in the imagination of brougham haters
My first thought was it’s the Neuschwanstein Castle built by King Ludwig II in Bavaria on wheels!
I hope he stays away from the drive through window!
The Cd of this thing is what? -2020?
Uhhhh, I’m seeing a barnacle encrusted Greek amphora drug up from the depths
of the Mediterranean.
But I mean that in a good way, yeah, that’s it!
A Grandiose Caravan, and yet not a Grand Caravan since it’s the short wheelbase model. It is however from the later years of the first generation vans when the Grand versions first became available, 1987 at earliest when the composite headlamps seen here replaced quad sealed beams. Also wondering if this van has the unusual alloy wheels that looked like steelies and were sometimes hiding under the wire wheel covers or other full-coverage hubcaps on late ’80s and early ’90s Chryslers, most often the FWD New Yorker/Fifth Avenue, to lower unsprung weight and improve CAFE numbers.
Is this thing even legal for on-road use? The view out the front seems blocked.
So this is what some folks are doing during shelter in place.
I got nothin’.
Leapin’ lizards! Reminds me of a certain ’91-’95 Plymouth Voyager in Toronto.
That looks neat Daniel.
Caravan, after Gaudi.
circa 1989. Wood, plaster, wire, on auto substrate. Unknown.
