Monster Garage: Backyard monsters

Monster Garage did a cool episode on "Backyard Monsters" where they showed a bunch of creations that other people had made. Here are some that I was able to find links for:
- Dobbertin Surface Orbiter (photo links at the bottom). Built out of an oil tanker, it can travel on land and sea.
- Draka. When we saw this, we immediately said "Burning Man" (confirmed by this unfortunate article) It's a gigantic dragon vehicle that shoots flames.
- Shortcut High. A chopped school bus that gives new meaning to "short bus."
- Carthedral. A Goth chick's dream car.
- Mirabilis Statuarius Vehiculum. A car witha bunch of artsy stuff glued on top of it.

Note to visitors: there are no b-l-u-e-p-r-i-n-t-s on this site. Sorry for the funny spelling, but the next paragraph should explain.

There are several comments posted asking for b-l-u-e-p-r-i-n-t-s that I have deleted it. I did those not out of malice, but because I believe that your comments are making this page show up in google searches for people looking for b-l-u-e-p-r-i-n-t-s. I have now removed all references to the word b-l-u-e-p-r-i-n-t-s (with the correct spelling) on this page, so hopefully those people who are doing those searches end up elsewhere.

If you are about to post a comment, please do not ask for b-l-u-e-p-r-i-n-t-s. I wish you the best of luck on your project, but you won't find any b-l-u-e-p-r-i-n-t-s here.

I must point out that the visual association CNN made in their article is misleading. They have a photo of Draka - but Draka was NOT the art car involved in this unfortunate and freak accident. Please don't perpetuate this misinformation!




Hi Fry,

I only meant to imply that Draka was at Burning Man, but thank you for clearing up the ambiguity. BTW, I was talking with someone who was at Burning Man the other day and he described the "art car" as a small lame pickup with a sofa in the back, or something of the like. I don't know how this qualifies as an art car, but oh well.


I'm trying to get info on the one wheeled motor bike from that episode. thank you


does anyone have any pics of the rocket roadster from the backyard monsters episode of monster garage? if so please send to my email.
