Seattle Art Car Blow-Out

This is how we roll

The eleventh annual Seattle Art Car Blow-Out took place last weekend.  Art cars from across North America decorate the streets of Seattle featuring seventy-five head turning models not available in any showroom, including chewbaru, a denture covered wagon, a tribute to the Space Shuttle, a propeller powered BMW Aerocar, and the dirty car art guy, an artist working in the dust on car windshields.

We had the opening night welcoming party at our home again this year.  It was crazy good fun!   – Jo & Marlow

The blow-out draws artist and their creations from as far as Kansas, Texas, California, Oregon and British Columbia, and many local cars join the spectacle.
