Viking Ship Rocket Train with a flame throwing dragon skull

You read that right. That’s a whole lot of awesome in one title! Dan Gunn is leaving for Burning Man next week and this year’s experience will be slightly different considering he got the green light to bring his very own art car to the festival.

He’s spent evenings and weekends (not to mention the hours he lied awake thinking of the next critical steps), working tirelessly on this beaut with a few close friends and craftsman at Victoria Makerspace.

It started off as a simple golf cart and it quickly took shape as every piece of stained wood, copper pipe, brass ornament, LED light and more were added, then removed, and then added again. Click here to watch the latest walk around!

Some may have seen a glimpse of it at this year’s Pride Parade. It stood out! Even more has been added since then and Dan is looking forward to starting a new trend in local parades. Move over commercial trucks with Christmas lights…

Have a listen as Dan describes it on the Zone@91.3fm‘s morning show and if you’re a burner – keep your eye out for the Viking Ship Rocket Train with a flame throwing dragon skull.
