Time for a new MV in 2019

Post by Galaxo Magic » Tue Jan 15, 2019 1:03 pm

Hi folks and trilobyte,

Galaxo Magic here. 2019 will be my 19th Burn and I helped build artcars from 2001-2006, including my own vehicle, the Lotus Flower, in 2003. In 2011 I, along with Captain Danger, built Beau le'Phant, the pink elephant. Built on a 1986 Chevy extended van, Beau was completely self contained. It took 3 days to assemble on playa. after 2012 we just couldn't sustain the amount of work it took to build her, so in 2014 we built the Bi-Polar Express, smaller, fit on a trailer so it took less building time on-playa. Well, 5 years later I am ready for a new project, rest assured the Bi-Polar Express will return but with a different crew.

We expect to transform a Cushman golf maintenance vehicle. Leading contenders for design, catapillar base, butterfly on top. This will be built in Chico, so if anyone is interested let me know.

Good luck with your new mutant vehicle Galaxo! And thanks for the big contributions to the burn. If you can find time, please keep us updated on your progress. Many of us here enjoy reading about a good build! Hope to see your new rig on the playa!

A Caterpillar-based art car? pshhhhh! :roll:


No but seriously, I wholeheartedly support more mutant vehicles and especially MV builds documented on eplaya! Good luck Galaxo and I'm looking forward to seeing your progress!
