Recently, we went to the Houston Auto Show. It's a show with the new 2016 cars coming from all the car manufacturers. It's fun to go and sit in and play with cars you might not ever get a chance to otherwise.
Well, outside the arena, they had some "Art Cars" on display. Art cars are regular vehicles that have been turned into rolling works of art by being modified and decorated. Houston is very well known for its thriving Art Car scene and hosts a parade every year that is amazing to see.

As we walked toward the arena, our eye was caught by this rather large feathered bird that was towering above all the others.
|Hen-a-Tron art car|
As you can see, it's very large...and there really is a car underneath there, the chassis is a 2011 Porsche Cayenne!
The name of the car is the Hen-a-Tron...though it kind of looks like a rooster too. The funny (tongue in cheek) back story of the name is that the owner built it so his pet hens could learn to drive and protect themselves from predators under the scary guise of a giant bird. Thus, the Hen-a-tron was born. Sadly, the hens never learned to drive so the car just goes from show to show. :-)

Here are a few other art cars that were on display...all very neat and totally unique and original, but we loved the Hen-a-tron most.
We thought you might enjoy something different!
