What’s the perfect car to bring to the Burning Man festival in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert? The answer is simple.  If you’re a fan of pirates and pirate ships, then you bring a car that looks like a pirate ship complete with giant actuated skull.  This puppy can get you around at a stunning 5 mph or give you a view of the surroundings from 33 feet up in the air.  It’s based on a steel scissor lift, but the rest of the structure is aluminum.  The “Skully” has a metal frame and is made out of fiberglass for a transparent effect.  Oh, and it has flame throwers as well.

This machine is a work of art and will make Burning Man visitors excited and jealous.

Get a good look at this fantastic pirate ship car as Jay Tamlin of Colorado Custom Shop explains how it all took shape.

Nicole Wakelin fell in love with cars as a teenager when she got to go for a ride in a Ferrari. It was red and it was fast and that was all that mattered. Game over. She considers things a bit more carefully now, but still has a weakness for fast, beautiful cars. Nicole also writes for NerdApproved and GeekMom.
