Flickr user Seetwist has come through with a wealth of info on the awesome space car photos. "The name of the car is 'Project Bubblepuppy' a.k.a. 'Welpe Luft-Blassen.' The person who made the car is a local artist named Sean Guerrero," he writes. "He's done some other stuff that you might have seen around the city (namely, the chrome stallions). The story behind this thing is actually quite interesting."
Seetwist was also kind enough to provide a link to a story about Project BubblePuppy, a link to the artist's website and some info on where to find a video about Sean. See, the truth really is out there. – Cory Casciato
