Not so much an instructable, but evidence of the inevitable outcome of mixing frustration, boredom, sharpies, Tipp-Ex, odds 'n' ends, an elderly desktop PC and slooooow network access - at least 20 minutes each day to log on. They devil will find work for idle hands...

    Like it! You should glue more stuff on it!

    Me and my kids made something similar with a pink(!) barbie toy car, and made it into an art car. Check it out here: http://pappmaskin.no/2008/10/toy-art-car-project/

    Reminds me of an art installation I did a long time ago of televisions in various stages of decay starting with working tvs, then ones with various art and ceramics on them making them look more and more stone age, and then winding up with one made out of unfired goopy clay. It was fun.... oh how I wish I had managed to hang on to my old slides through the many changes of roomates and homes.....
