Harrod Blank’s 1992 cult classic art car documentary “Wild Wheels” is now available on DVD, as a special re-mastered 2 disc set with extras. Harrod’s film is an excellent introduction to the wonderful and bizarre world of art cars and I highly recommend it. Here’s a QuickTime preview from the film featuring Gene Pool and his Grass Car.
Wild Wheels is filmmaker Harrod Blank’s comic and revealing exploration of Art Cars, personally customized automobiles which reflect the individualistic spirit of their drivers. Traveling across the country in his own wildly decorated VW bug, Blank discovers a memorable cast of real-life characters who are obsessed with transforming their cars into mobile works of art.
Wild Wheels and Harrod’s other films and books are available for purchase through his online store.
