#1, Blastolene Brothers--wildness on wheels--at Cars in the Park, Portland Art Museum, September 3, 2011

I found this one online, identified as The Decoliner. Randy's Vision: Flash Gordon's Motorhome! This 26' polished aluminum beauty features a flying bridge, complete with driving station and room for 5 passengers on the roof.

Oh, how I wish I could have seen the Blast-o-liner on the move! Not that I'm not happy to have seen this and several other Blastolene Brothers outlandishly wonderful vehicles. I couldn't resist using the Picnik special effect HDR-ish.

Another view of the Blast-o-liner, as I took it, no special effects so that you can see how it really looked.

Stairway to heaven? Yes, it is. If you're someone consumed with the desire to drive a vehicle from on high.

These convex windows fit perfect/y, don't you think? The Picnik special effect here is Orton-ish.

Looks like it ought to have wings to me.

I'm not sure how these two mirrors help with a side view if you're driving from on top of the Blast-o-Liner. Maybe since you're so high up, you've got great sight lines for safe driving. Speaking of sight lines, that's me in the hat reflected in the top mirror!

I know from looking at their Web site and the Works in Progress photos that there was a steering wheel originally on the lower level, where steering wheels usually are located. You can see from this photo that it is not there now, though.

It's just too cute!

Someone put a lot of effort into this. I really like the retro-futuristic style.
