Great Cars along the Highway. Pearl Street, Boulder, Colorado

00 Spotted on the Road, Pearl Street

Pearl Street is the heart of downtown Boulder.  Much of this street is a pedestrian zone, with lots of shops, restaurants and buskers.  It’s a lively place in the evening, filled with people, conversation and music.

During our last visit to Boulder, we wandered to Pearl Street and found one of the most unusual car displays I’ve ever seen.  One vehicle in particular was a tribute to rock and (*I think*) especially to Freddie Mercury of Queen fame (one of my favorite voices in popular music).  Someone had spent hundreds and hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars glitzing up a ‘rock ‘n roll’ car in tribute.

Some of the photos below give you a closer look at some of the many elements covering the car’s fa├žade.

The second vehicle was a van covered with eyeballs.  Not nearly as fascinating as the rock ‘ roll car and, at some level, a little disturbing, but also very unusual.
