Keeping Austin Weird one car at a time

I was driving home down Mopac the other day and a regular car covered in branches, leaves etc. joined from one of the on-ramps. To start with I couldn’t work it out, but I soon realized it had been decorated that way. As far as I could tell it was it’s normal “dress” not special for a parade or anything.

I mentioned it to one of my friends who pointed out there was a long standing tradition for Austin “art” cars. I must admit, I’d seen a few around, but never put two and two together. Here is one in my neighborhood and there are a load more pictures on flickr of Austin art cars.


Why not upload your pictures too, tag them with keep austin cars weird

    If I end up having to buy another car, maybe I’ll make it an artcar. A biodiesel-fueled artcar.
