Hooray for senior class projects! And the price tag is almost as unbelievable as the paint job! That thing is all kinds of awesome.

Congrats on your graduation, too! ^_^

This belongs in the American Visionary Arts Museum's Art Cars Parade. http://www.tackytreasures.com/tackyhtml/artcars.html
I saw this when I lived in B'more in 2003. From the site, I am not sure if it is still going (the latest photos are from 2005.) Anyhow, you did a great job and I hope that your creation finds an apt home.

Wow, well done.  I love old vw beetles anyway, but you've made it look so cool.

Hey! We did that for our senior parade too! Only we painted my art teacher's little Ford Taurus, haha... suffice it to say we used washable paint. I was president of my National Art Honor Society chapter, too, got to wear that multicolored cord at graduation. YAY for art nerds!!

Man you really brought this challenge to a new level. I cant wait to see who wins!

OMG that's amazing! I so wouldn't have expected to see a car in this challenge, what a great surprise.

Such a suitable paintjob for a vw of course.
