Oldsmobile Art Car Spotted at Microsoft

By Rob Einaudi

Editor-in-Chief

This contraption was parked in a visitor’s spot near the Microsoft Research building earlier this week, and my buddy Dan snapped these pics with his phone. Looks like it used to be a 1966 or 1967 Olds 98 Luxury Sedan.

I’m thinking this car was built for a Mad Max style movie, and someone managed to buy it from the production company for what was hopefully a very, very low price.

[...] Somehow this beast manages to pull off Jed Clampett meets Back To The Future, which is not a combination you see everyday. The truck tires and corrugated sheetmetal combined with the flying buttresses and random bits of junk combine in a way almost reaching Lagonda-levels of beauty. [CarDomain] [...]

Its probably a movie car for an independent, or low-budget film. Or a student film.

Or you’ll see “Hi I’m an art car and I’m a PC”

Thats not art, its a bunch of garbage welded onto a car / glued onto a car.
