    • Thank you Diana. These things make me think of the boxes in Mondrian’s paintings.

  3. The roachmobile must turn a lot of heads. Imagine the wrecks it would cause on the freeways. :)

    • I don’t think it is road worthy enough to drive on a freeway here with people zooming through town at 70 MPH.

  4. That cockroach will be around long after we’re gone.

  5. That’s going to take a very big can of Raid or an enormous shoe to get “that” roach! LOL

  6. I’m a little depressed. After checking the internet, I discovered there are no Roachmobile dealers within a thousand miles of where I live. I must drown my disappointment.

    • There is a thriving art car scene in Houston. Look for Houston Art Car Klub on Facebook and get to know the scene.,

  7. Great roachmobile.

  8. Hilarious Roachmobile. What a great sense of humour! I presume it’s also indestructible. :)

    • It may be indestructible on a spiritual basis, I don’t think it is very rugged.

    • Laurie, we have a lot of weird vehicles here because of the Art Car scene.

  11. Thank you for liking “Fluffy Bunny Overload.” Wonderful work in this photo gallery! :) I especially like “Glassell School of Art”, and the Roachmobile made me laugh. Art cars are fun to look at. :)

    • Thank you. Art cars are a fairly constant thing here.

  12. he looks very happy in his giant cockroach, probably the traffic parts ahead of him like godzilla

    That guy is obviously driving a Florida cockroach. They bug the hell out of me. You should see the can of Raid you need to kill one of those buggers. LOL

    • Nope, it is a Houston roach. The car is well known around here.

      June 15, 2014 at 7:16 pm

      • Ron

        The most remarkable car I saw around here, Florida, was a Ford Fiesta in the colors of the Green bay Packers. The top was adorned by a large wedge of cheese. I took a photo and posted it on Facebook. That’s a real die hard fan.

        June 17, 2014 at 12:23 pm

        • Nothing like a cheese head.
