El Pulpo Mecanico was one of the coolest art car this year.
The huge flame-throwing articulated metal octopus is built out of mostly scrap metal. The mechanical octopus was designed and created by artist Duane Flatmo and the spectacular fire effects and electrical systems were created by Steve Gellman.
