Update: Art Car Stolen During Summer Fest
Shelley Buschur's award-winning art car was stolen Sunday night.
When Shelley Buschur and Kirk Suddreath came home from a long day out at Free Press Summer Fest and saw Buschur's vehicle missing from the driveway, they may have thought that the heat had gotten to their heads.
Unfortunately, they weren't seeing things.
On Sunday, Buschur's "Make Out Not War" art car was swiped from the front driveway of Buschur's home.
Buschur's painted blue pickup with lipstick kisses won second place in the political statement category at the 2009 Art Car Parade. They have "no idea" when it was stolen on Sunday -- they have since reported the incident to the Houston Police Department.
If there's a bit of good news in this, there's a decent shot at recovering such an easily identifiable automobile. As one Facebook commenter put it, "You should get it back. When my art car was stolen it was for having sex in and I got it back a few days later."
Anyone who peeps this beauty can call HPD at 713-884-3131.
Update: Buschur's "Make Out Not War" was recovered Monday evening from an impound lot. Aside from a "jacked up" steering column, the 1988 Chevrolet 3500 pickup was in one piece.
