Art is a fantastic way for those to express themselves whether it be painting, drawing, web design, sculpture or even creating a masterpiece that can literally be driven away. Car art is a unique way for some to showcase their creative skills or just be seen as different on the roads. Some of the most creative vehicle art masterpieces can be seen below or perhaps on a street near you.
The Golden Mean
Created from a 1966 VW bug, blacksmith Jon Sarrugarte along with his wife fabricated this truly one of a kind car call The Golden Mean. Designed in the shape of a snail, it glows in the dark and shoots rings of fire from its feelers.
High Heel Shoe Car
Ever feel like you just can’t decide which pair of shoes to wear? How about which shoe to drive?
“The Golden Zeppelini” is another fantastic wheeled art work creation by Jon Sarrugarte. It was built using an old electric wheel chair and resembles the original blimp.
Check out his notes on building it and watch the video of him driving it below:

A two for one here… I don’t know! This coffin car is scary to look at and sure to creep out a few fellow drivers.

I am not sure you can call this being ecofriendly, but these neat grass cars definitely make a statement of sorts.
3 Wheeled Wooden Car
A car made entirely from wood (ok, well certain parts obviously aren’t) this neat artistic vehicle weighs roughly 900lb, with a top speed of 101 mph and gets about 60mpg! Created by furniture maker Friend Wood, his three-wheel car, which he has named ‘Tryane II’, was made using the chassis and 602cc engine from a Citroen 2CV.
