Austin, TX (By Crispy, Web Content Team) -- The Tub Of Car is an ambitious mutant vehicle being constructed by three innovators from A-Hole Camp named Kaleb, Sarah, Jim Mansour and Pete Ruck.
I met with Kaleb & Sarah a week after late winter's last bone shattering polar blur northerner at their workspace in North Austin on a Springish type of night. In addition to leading this art car project, Kaleb is also a woodworker. This will be their sixth Burning Flipside.
The chassis of the art car was purchased from another Burner who had planned to use it as an ice transportation device at Burning man a few years ago. Kaleb and team have re-built the chassis to serve their needs and have added a 8’x4.5” custom made fiberglass shell in the shape of a bathtub. The bathtub will be a foam machine designed to cover its passengers in non-toxic bubbles. Kaleb describes it as "a two year project" which they hope to complete in time for this year's event.
