So....We're gonna build an ARTCAR...

....and we need your help.


Mister P, BYRDMAN, chad and I sat down last night to hash out some details in cost and equipment, materials etc....

To get this project going we'll need mostly volunteers of time and ideas....so if you're a person that likes to tinker and do fun . Get with us and tell us what you're good at.

We need:
Welders
Assemblers
Beer drinkers
Idea havers
And time havers....


We are thinking of building a makeshift car out of 4 fiddys...stock.

So if you have a fiddy to use, that helps. So far we have 2 maybe 3....

If you don't know what an artcar is, well, Jesus, you need to get out more.

LET'S GO!



THERE WILL BE A PARTY AND LOTS OF BEER AT THE END.

My high school has a team, we've been in it for two years now. It is an art class, last class period of the day. They work with the robotics team, who of course has their class period as the last of their day also. Based on that, our list would include software engineers, knowledge of pneumatics, electricians, and a sponsor.

What I'm really saying is...we're so kicking your ! It's on! Woo hoo!
(this might go against the moral contract code I signed, whatever!

You should build a giant squid and dress it with GSXR logos.

You should use four fiddy a to make a platform then put a motorcycle on top of it with a rider on it... Full motogp.... I have a super light trailer that can probably be towed by a fiddy....
