Re: A Novice with Passion

It it's me, I'd start with fleshing out your concept. One main questions here; Big or little? Sounds like it's fairly big (Car or truck frame) if you have others involved. Go wild on design first. Remember it has to get through DMV review to be allowed on playa. But once you get your design up, the ...

Re: DPW looking for people to come get some bikes.

One question. How many of the leftover bikes actually still worked? Could it be that a lot of the dumping is people who's bikes fall apart (Cheap or not well cared for) just say "fuck it" and leave them where they finally broke down?

Since we had a small flatbed trailer, we thought we might help by picking up some of the bikes and taking them to DPW where we had heard yo...

Re: Disabled vehicle permit vs Art car

I guess I would ask; has something changed? You make it sound like you could go either way. If it is truly a disabled person vehicle then you would go through that process. MV? the other. You really need to decide what your car is first. The rest will follow.

I'm gonna argue that a little bit. I believe it's more the vehicle itself, how "wow" it is, and how little it resembles a regular street vehicle and/or whatever it's built on, if applicable. Interaction is good but I wouldn't say it's the key element in getting a license. A great, artisti...

I would like there to be an exemption for all wheeled couches. If they're not a death trap, approve it instantly. There can't be enough mobile couches on the playa. Second that.
