The Card Car aka JoeCar From New Zealand

TheCardCar nicknamed JoeCar or JOKERis 1983 TOYOTA STARLET, created by Ted Charlton for art and fun and I believe the first art car submitted from New Zealand. The car has a dozen jumbo decks, four 500 decks and approx. four standard decks, then coated with two coats of polyurethane resin. The character cards from two German decks are also placed behind the rear doors and inside on the front dash, due to their wonderful artistic quality.

Ted is looking for like minded art cars covered in cards so he can compare notes on technique, so be sure to let him know if you come across another one. I know of a few cars covered in paper products such as the Pokemon Art Car and the Stamp Art Car, so their might be some connection there. Good luck Ted and thanks for your submission.
