    We saw one similar to that one in Paducah several years ago. Not a job I want to take on, but fun to look at.

    B oth of those are pretty neat looking.. It also made me think about once when I was driving an18 wheeler I passed a nam that was driving an old clunker that really needed some work but he had taken carpet squares and completly carpeted the roof of his car and lots of the ends were flapping in the wind. Often wondered if he got where he was going

    I saw one many years ago- don't recall the show but it probably was Vermont Quiltfest or Lancaster. A vibrantly dressed vivacious lady was quite proud to show her quilted car from Florida. I loved it! Flaps over the headlights, screens over the windows, and even a sunroof. She'd asked Guild members for their unwanted blocks. made large sections, and used a Lot of velcro. Apparently quite a sensation when going through toll booths! I was surprised when she said she'd been driving it around (thinking of bug splatter) but she said she just tossed the parts in the washer!
