The Art Car Parade: Enjoying the Ride

Art Car stalwarts employ time, energy and creativity to bring their new creations to life. Oh, and scrap metal comes in handy too.

Randy Blair's 2007 Toyota Yaris weighs more than 3,500 pounds from all the trinkets he glued to the exterior to achieve his "Little Bit of Nonsense." "I got curious and weighed it on some truck scales," said Blair. "Most of the weight comes from the dichroic glass."

"At the first art car parade I was at, I met an artist named Bob Wink and that year his car was an alligator and he passed out little alligators," said Blair. "He gave me this one that first year," he said as he held up a little, plastic alligator. "It's been on my car ever since. It has a spot here on the back that's pretty special to me."
