Happy Birthday!

This art car was based around a 1983 Carpenter Transport Bus that has been to Burning Man (and continues to go) as a Golden Buddha, a Squiddoodha, and a giant pinball game.

Morgan had previously constructed a platform with solid railings around the top of the bus, and for this project a lightweight ring was constructed from which to hang the cake fabric. Exterior aluminum stairs were attached to one side and an extension apparatus made it possible to drive the bus from the roof deck (at 5MPH).
