It's a M35A1 2.­5 ton military truck from c.­ 1965.­ How do I know this? I worked on it for several years doing mostly engine & drivetrain maintenance in Oakland, CA.­ NIMBY is a fantastic place for artists to revitalize older equipment into "Art Cars" that grace the Burning Man Festival.­ Because of its ability to run on almost any fuel (except aviation gasoline) this specimen has been powered by vegetable oils WITHOUT ANY modifications for over four years.­ Part of our Cold War legacy: to make any engine run on multifuels when fighting against enemy forces in territories that may not have specific fuels for MILSPEC engines.­ Snook Smith has created an exceptional "green" power based vehicle that has delighted BM participants for years!

Those art cars are heavily decorated and customized vehicles that are used during the Burning Man festival.­

Most art cars are not street-legal, but some are, and they can be spotted occasionally on the road or on city streets.­

Burning Man is yearly gathering of about 70,000 people, many from the San Francisco Bay Area, celebrating love, life, passion and art during one week in a desolated desert in Nevada.­

The event takes place each last week of august in an immense dry lakebed called Black Rock Desert.­ A temporary city is built where about everything is permitted except violence, money and commerce.­

The culmination of the event is the burning of a large human-shape figure in a giant bonfire, hence the name (Burning Man).­ The city disappears completely at the end of the week, leaving no trace.­
