Question on noise from art cars.. I noticed that there really aren't any art cars that I found that made loud noises.. I have the urge, for some odd reason, to build a muscle couch. Part Muscle Car part couch.. Sort of odd, not really sure why I want to build it, I guess I just "do"
Anyway, I was thinking of strapping on the biggesst loudest meanest V8 I can find with super short headers that will borderline sound like a really loud chopper.. I know it could be a little annoying for neighbors but I am not sure how bg a deal this is.. Are there any noise rules or anything like that?

I say run with it. I like the idea that there are still some folks out there willing to swim against the tide of convention - especially as far as the Theme(TM) goes. Hell, find a happy middle ground and do your couch with a diesel powered by bio-fuel.

I know where there is a huge flatbed art car / party barge that is for sale that has a 5-note locomotive air horn on it that I installed back in 2004. It is currently located in San Carlos, I believe. It is a Ford F-750 diesel. Made the trip to/from BRC from the bay area in 04 without trouble but has been parked since as far as I know. I can get you in touch with the owner if you are interested.

I am actually a raging environmentalist ironically. I've thought a lot about this actually and just came up with the idea of a diesel.. I think I am going to do a something like a 6.2 Gm diesel, non turbo charged of course to get the noise and flames, and run biodiesel.. I am trying to figure out how I can make the flames ignite and I'm not sure about the flame quality of biodiesel and diesel in general.. I was thinking a propane system rigged in the exhaust similar to some of the torch vehicles.. But ignited by the exhaust heat/temp/flames, pushbutton most likely.. I am just learning on propane other than some minor messing around with some other burners' systems.. Not sure how to rig it so flames will shoot out.. Hope no one steals my idea :(
I say do the muscle car thing NOW while ya still can! Burning Man is going to get greener and greener with each passing year and have more and more restrictions on fire, speed, drugs, liquor, and noise....in short all the things that make life worth livin'! Let 'er rip Skip! Hot glue a plastic dinosaur to the hood of a '67 Camaro and tear it up. Yeeehaw!
(sorry, I got... a little..out of control there....my bad.)
