The result of a collaboration between artist Chad Sorg and local resident Mark Rippie, the vehicles act as giant canvases for a variety of different works.

Sorg did most of the painting with other local artists invited to help.

Some of the vehicles are angled into the ground while others are stacked on top of each other.

Rippie wanted the installation to stand as a free attraction to those driving past on the nearby highway.
