Pimp my ride? How about Pip my ride?
Perpetually parked outside Louisville's 21c Museum is the "Pipmobile", a 1995 Lincoln Towne Car stretch limousine completely encrusted from stem to stern with those little round globby pieces of glass you find at craft stores.
Why? Well, because it's art, man. Says so here. According to the artist's statement of creator Monica Mahoney, the gluing of the glass globs was done to make the car "resemble the interior of a pomegranate".
I've never seen the car actually being driven, but apparently you can rent the thing to have yourself chauffeured around in postmodern style - contact firstname.lastname@example.org for availability and rates.
