HOUSTON
ART CAR PARADE

HOME    TEXAS REGIONS


What clueless rube said there was no culture in Houston? After wandering around downtown Houston on foot---impressed with the buildings, impressed with many things---then driving out of downtown on an elevated freeway, able to look down on what looked to be a park with what looked to be unusual activity. So, at the first exit the hunt began to try and track back to the unusual sites that had been seen in passing. It did not take too many wrong turns to find the sprawling greenbelt/park area, where what you see in the following photos was assembled.

It seems you can not have an event in the South without Elvis being represented in some way. On this car the history of rock and roll is portrayed in sequins. Glued to a car.

This is what is known as a Gothic Art Car Mobile. With a woman in black holding a rat dog. Eyes on Texas records every rat dog sighting.

Silver dollars were glued to this car. Well glued. Likely with super glue. No amount of prying could loosen a single dollar.

This car was covered with better vegetables than you ever see in a Texas grocery store.

What Car Art Parade would be complete without a sand castle on top of a car?
