Captured near the UO campus. Art car students, perhaps? A close-up, to fully appreciate the details:
Don’t give Ed Stembridge any ideas. 🙂
It probably draws as many stares as the real thing, but for different reasons no doubt. But hey, if your goal is to get noticed…
Ouch! My eyes…
I’d consider the ‘Wolfsburg Crest’ to be more appropriate, and just as attractive:
I always find it interesting so see how many years it takes to see a new model that is either really beat-up or becomes an art project like this.
I like older cars because what I do to them, I do for me, not some future owner.
Just a bit more of a stretch than the pic on the back page of R&T years ago, of a bug with a lower body stripe that read “Poorsche”
Kinda reminds me of the Prancing Moose sticker a lot of Volvo owners(including me) have on their Volvos. To pay homage for Volvo creating the Moose Avoidance Test.

What’s the translation of the cartoon?
A translator gave ten just for wir: a german conjugation, I vaguely remember them talking about conjunctions in English class but never did quite get the meaning, so I’m totally lost in German; this is about as far as those translators help: nada.
It’s right above the cartoon.
I dig it!
That was my first thought but ERLICH sounded like a German politician and GEMACHT German to my addled brain. Sigh….. I have enough trouble with me native tongue.

Ehrlich so! 🙂
I get it! Like oil and water. I learned something neues today and in a foreign language no less.
That is just…sad.
If you’re going to do something like that, a Porsche makeover would have made more sense, genetically speaking. I’m thinking white paint and a “Carrera” script decal on the lower sills, like a ’73 Carrera RS 🙂
He’s got his directional wheel on the wrong side, unless his primary direction is backwards…
Poster paints..they’ll wash off
