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?

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

Three years ago my wife and I were cruising the playa Monday afternoon in our little art car. We were amazed at the number of bikes left abandoned on the playa. 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: Looking for assistance/advice with art car in San Francisco

Chowski's advice aside, it's awful late to find anyone to work on anything Burn related, as everyone is scrambling to get their shit in order. I'd say your best bet is to get them to a golf cart repair shop. They might at least get them running again. The audio is tougher so no advice there. Good lu...

Just like Mutant Vehicles, you should pre-register in order to get a license to operate a Vehicle f...

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.

While I think there is some truth to what Chowski has said, I don't believe you should paint everyone with such a broad brush.

Re: Curated art cars, what are they looking for?

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, artistic vehicle ...

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.
