World of Wheels!

Just when you thought I’d run out of World Of Wheels pictures, here’s a few more from the (virtual) stack I brought home with me:

Don’t be scared; the little fella in your gas tank just wants to be friends. Well more likely, he wants to eat your brain to gain your knowledge.

In fact, it made me look a few times. And by “a few times,” I mean “I was there for half an hour photographing two of the several bikes at his booth.” Needless to say, seeing the talent and effort that goes into these paint jobs could make you change your mind about unicorns and the naked ladies with swords who ride them…..

Tow Mater

Ok, so he doesn’t sing like Britney, but I bet he’d do better at tractor tipping. Mater had his own booth for the kids to come by and have their picture taken with him. Several people at the show commented on the supposed fact that this replica’s running gear is either from a Ford mini-bus or a Chevy 1-ton dually. However, I still think it was really him…
