About this project
Well . . . we started with an idea, then we bought the bus and now we are asking for your help to make a GIANT mobile toaster that serves toast!
We love special little treats out on the playa and hot toast served right out of an oversized toaster is just another special little treat we want to contribute to the community on the playa. Just think of a cool evening on the dessert and in the distance you spot a huge silver toaster with toast poping out of the top and on fire! So you ride up to it and you are able to have a nice slice of toast to doll up with assortments of jam, peanut butter, cinnamon butter, vegemite and other goodies!
There is something so comforting about hot toast and the simple design of the classic toaster that brings people to a special happy place, so we want to bring them there with our magical toaster mobile.
Our plan: We've got the bus now we need to fix the engine, weld two pieces of giant metal fabricated toast and then weld them to the top of the bus, and give it a killer paint job of metallic SILVER. Oh and load up on bread! tons and tons of bread from gluten free to nutty filled breads. We also plan to deck out the inside so it appears as though you are looking into a toaster when you look through the windows of the toaster, with crimped red EL wire wrapping the entire inside. And we cant forget the toasters that will be doing all the work ;)
Risks and challenges
Well we already have approval from the Department of Mutant Vehicles to be on the playa this year, so that means the Toaster will be on the playa this year!!. The only other obstacle we are facing is funding. We have done a lot of the funding ourselves personally but we have a ways to go in terms of engine work and welding. Our skill sets are limited so we are needing to hire these services out to the professionals who know what they are doing. And it also helps our local community as we already have local artists lined up for the welding as well a mechanic who are long time burners, so in part they are a part of this project too just like we want you to be as well.
The Toaster will be there on the playa and will be the shiniest of all with nothing stopping it! So obstacles shmobstacles, we've got this!! YAY TOAST!!
