Burning Man Festival - Cat Mutant Vehicles

I first heard about the Burning Man festival on this delightful blog and then I kept seeing these crazy cars pop up and knew I had to do a Burning Man cat inspired post! So what is this Burning Man? For those not in the know I'll post straight from the Burning Man website, 

"Once a year, tens of thousands of people gather in Nevada's Black Rock Desert (also known as "the playa") to create Black Rock City, a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. They depart one week later, having left no trace whatsoever. People new to Burning Man often assume that it’s a regular “festival” as they've come to know them, a mostly passive experience where everything is planned, orchestrated and pre-packaged by the event producers, and attendees just come and enjoy the show. In fact, the exact opposite is true ... the people who attend Burning Man are no mere “attendees,” but rather active participants in every sense of the word: they create the city, the interaction, the art, the performance and ultimately the “experience.” Participation is at the very core of Burning Man, and there are many ways to participate"

One way of participating at the festival is to create a mutant vehicle
Thanks to the lovely photographers of flickr for the amazing photos :)

It looks like one hell of a festival, is it on anyone's bucket list?
Which car is your favourite??
