Peculiar Airstream custom 'spacecraft'

Well that's.... different.



Here's the link to the full article.

It looks like it used to be a 31-foot trailer that's been cut down to somewhere around 23' with lots of Vista Views added (most of the extra Vista Views are visible in another photo in the article), the tires just stuck on (probably to eliminate the weight of the unnecessary axles) and a few other weird mods for the sake of art. Personally I prefer the lawn chair stuck on the side to the roof turbine attic vent. We all know a MaxxFan would be better in the rain, after all!

Beauty is in the eye of the beerholder...

Somebody sure must have had access to some inexpensive salvage materials. Interesting the vista views overlayed across ribs.

And on the artist's website we see the first step of the eternal question, "If I had a bottomless Airstream, should an Amphicar be my next purchase?"
