Temple On Wheels

Click images for larger views.
This person's bumper sticker really says it all, don't you think? The owner has turned this truck into something completely unique and, I'm guessing, meaningful. I wish I knew what was behind those doors. Is it truly used as a temple and the inside is set up for prayer? Are they just carting around everyday things like home-improvement equipment? Maybe the inside is filled with art supplies or is decorated just as intricately. No matter what, I don't think the owner minds attention (and stares). I wonder if they ever remove the temple and use only the unadorned truck.

The details are incredible and it must have taken quite awhile to complete. I love the lobster on the hood. In case you can't tell from the pictures, the gold portion along the bottom of the truck is glitter. The creator is an artist, clearly. I look at this truck and I get the feeling that the owner has a sense of humor (Barbie, beer cans, duck bills), is dedicated to their craft (attention to detail), and has a fiery spirit (they drive around with that thing not afraid to stand out).
