Unless someone has ~$250K to recreate it IMO it's not gonna happen. I can't find the link right now unfortunately, but there is a rather depressing photo of the duck head sitting out in a field somewhere returning to the earth, and I don't believe the vehicle (some type of amphibious landing craft?) was kept long after the event. Seems the Disco Duck was on a one-time migration... may it RIP!

I know nothing about the Disco Duck, but that field you made mention of, could be the ranch....where, perhaps its being stored. I could be wrong! But a lot of cool projects are stored there. And some, reduced to lawn art. Who knows?!
anything worth doing is worth overdoing..

Now that you mention it, the photo I saw did say it was the ranch. I can't believe I can't find it now. I am pretty sure it was a link off Tribe, which I was surfing whilst eplaya was down last month. Anyway, if they are planning on resurrecting the duck the head will have to be redone as per the photo, and the caption which mentioned that pieces of mirror were scattered around..one of which was admittedly pocketed by photo taker as a momento. If anybody knows the post/photo I'm talkin bout, please post here! I have tried every conceivable search term combo to find it again and I got nuttin.

If anyone knows of the whereabouts of the car, the disco head or any of the people involved please have them contact me. We would like to resurrect the duck for our camp tower or camps art car.

Danke
