Snail Ar Car - Called the Golden Mean

This beauty is brought to you by blacksmith Jon Sarriugarte, who fabricates custom home furnishings, and his wife, Kyrsten Mate, who literally dreamed up the concept. "I woke up and said, 'We have to build this giant snail,'" she said. "It totally wasn't planned. This whole project has been weird coincidences and math." They transformed a 1966 VW Bug into the rolling piece of art. The Golden Mean is making its debut at the Burning Man art festival this year. The Snail Ar Car glows in the dark and shoots rings of fire from its feelers. It also seats six people.
