Baby you can paint my car

If you live anywhere on the West Coast, or for that matter any town that has a significant contingent of Wacky People, you've probably seen them driving around: art cars. It just so happens that my brand new town, Santa Monica, has a rather large contingent of these cars. They tend to be older vehicles -- you don't see a lot of late-model Mercedes art cars -- painted just about any way you can imagine, often with foreign objects adhered to them in some thematically-consistent way. Since I have a habit of posting about strange things that go on in my neighborhood, I thought I'd share these shots of two vehicles I see, and marvel at, on a daily basis.

On the back of this car, a small inscription reads "hand-painted." Ha ha.IMG_4720.jpg

If you look closely, you can tell: this car has no passenger-side windows.
