The first car is La Rancha which is a performance car best shown in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KrNq4u1v5U. La Rancha has a fire component and the scales are made almost entirely of spoons, and has been a favorite for many years. It looks terrific at night. Thompson is built on a Miata so it is just as much a car as it is art. Easy to maintain and can keep up with traffic. The "arms" are manipulated hydraulically and are shown extended in the 3rd picture. Mark has been making "minis" lately that are perfect for kids as they are built on an electric scooter base. Mark Bradford recently mounted a one-man show at the Art Car Museum.
