Easily one of the oddest and most time-consuming art cars we've seen at the Woodward Dream Cruise is "THIS IS CARPUTER," a Ford Escort with thousands of square inches of silicon circuit boards glued to it.

This magnificent curiosity took an astounding 10 months at 10 to 20 hours per week, and is the work of Ernie Brostek, who amusingly does not have a computer himself. Each piece was cut, filed and sanded to fit the contours of the car and then glued in place. Click next to be astonished at the list of electronics that went into its creation.
