Fairy Car
The 2006 U.F.O. Cumooter, alternative fuel fairy vehicle.

Apparently a fairy named PeZz entered the Rolling Sculpture Car Show!

An alternative fuel vehicle!

The show was held downtown Ann Arbor (MICHIGAN)
Friday July 14th, 2006 from, 2PM-10PM

So... PeZz left me "holding the bag".
After a very sticky accident with a Fuel cell during speed testing. PeZz had no interest in being seen in public with his antenae gooped together.

I suspect it may have been as much due to his knowledge of the up coming thunderstorm that he didn't show. With a lengthy list of instructions I ended up showing his entry.
Well behaved and courtious fairy fans.
After the rain let up there was a pretty good crowd...plenty of knowledgeable and interested fairy fans.
I was bummed that I did not get the name or a photo of a y0oung rocket scientist with whom I had a lengthy discussion about propulsion. In fact, after the show I was considering some of our concepts and may have come up with a viable solution for the Vernore/Menthos rocket we brainstormed.
With LOTS of questions!

PeZz managed to get
a miniature vanity plate.

People were thinking the BMW ISetta was small!
Cumooter at Night.

Because the Car was at the show from 12:30....the headlight had only artificial lights. Normally the salt shaker houses fireflies, but they would have been toasted during the day and that's rood.
Since I have custody (briefly) of the Cumooter.
I took the opportunity to take some studio shots at Giddy Up.
In 2011 PeZz built a trailer for the cumooter.
The Frame holds a brass box.
The Trailer also has a Michigan Vanity plate.
The Trailer's 3rd wheel flips up while being towed by the cumooter.
On July 7, 2011 the cumooter and the new trailer appeared at
the Rolling Sculpture Car Show on Main Street in Ann Arbor.

The cumooter upgraded to a 2 liter Vernors fuel cell to pull the Trailer, which when full of booty can weigh over 10 pounds.
One hazard of the volatile fuel of Vernors and Mentos is the high pressure and potential for leaks. This year the cumooter did spring a rather impressive, fizzy and sticky leak, whichsprayed several feet. Luckily this was brought under control before any cars parked in the adjacent spots. However, the leak continued as one can see from the diminished level. Note the drip pan/cup beneath, which required emptying every hour.
