This steampunk giant snail was built on the chassis of a VW Beetle. Quite impressive!

Does it have a small, self contained kitchen, in a spherical module...

...in other words, is it a gastro-pod?

I love it. Smiley Kind of reminds me a little of the Rhino-car and shark-car I used to see occasionally in Boulder years ago.

As long as it doesn't run across the salt flats, I'd say it's pretty cool!
