Petition to bring back the Buzzsaw mutant vehicle 2 ze playa

Postby terrencehanscom » Fri Mar 26, 2010 11:08 am

2007 was my first burn and part of what made a night on the playa so great was seeing that EL-wire buzzsaw cutting across the surface of the earth. Like any mutant vehicle it looked hideous during the day, but at night it was incredible. I love the simplicity. Returning in 2008 I was looking forward to seeing the buzzsaw, but it was gone.

I didn't get to go to the 2009 event.

Any word on it this year?

I'm still looking for a photo...

BRING IT BACK!

You mean lame-ass ones look like shit in daylight. Not everyone slaps plywood over a pickup truck and hangs lights on it and calls it done.

Rather than "petition" to bring back that one, build one yourself. That's how the system works.

Right, cap'n. Some poor soul poured their blood, sweat and tears out for this thing. I am sure they're like to bring it out again, if it's in repair, but likely they need money more than they need signatures. :)

I first arrived on the playa in 2004 just before midnight, and one of the first things I saw while I was trying to comprehend Black Rock City was a sawblade ripping through the middle of it. That was the first art vehicle I ever saw, and one of my favorite.

Another one I miss is the Miracle Grow flower.

You mean this?

If you look close, you can see the "Fear Trap" (Venus Fly Trap mutant vehicle) in the back there.
