Out of the gates

Pre-departure trip to Richmond School. Driving my kids to school in the MOGmobile might have been the best part of the whole project.
Is it inappropriate to crank up the MOGmobile and start a dance party on RT 101 while we wait for a crash to be cleaned up?

All that remains here in Portland are the fiber shards in my underpants. I have come to enjoy the titillating effects of the glassy hair shirt and will miss the ganky smell of uncured resin in my sneakers. It has been a whirlwind of a month. The cardinal sin for a designer like me is to let a cool project out the door without a great photo. I am guilty of that sin, but that is what you get when you squeeze a 4 month project into 5 weeks. So you will just have to trust me when I say that the MOGmobile is amazing! Glowing eyes, articulating arms, rockin' stereo, smooth ride, hairy and hell a friendly. A little smurf, a little Grimace, a little Seuss, and a lot of blub blub blood.

The drive down to San Fran was a mess. It rained like crazy for the entire trip. Nothing like busting your butt on a project and having to deliver it, looking like a soggy muddy blue poodle. The good thing is that the MOGmobile functions very well in weather, so I don't have to worry about that.
Thanks to David Hyman and MOG for the opportunity to do this crazy project, and thanks to everyone for helping me out.

Now what? Anyone need their living room painted? I can clean out behind your fridge, I can do yard work, drywall, build a deck? What you want? I am available


  1. Congrats Charley! The mogmobile looks great. Can't wait to see it in the flesh, I mean fur.

    For more work, maybe you should try an add in the Art Cars fabrication classifieds?

  2. Awesome mogmobile, Charley! Congrats from your pals at Aquent!

  3. The Mogmobile is so rad! I wonder what you can do with my car? I like Orange, please.

    ;) Congrats!

  4. Oh, I'll make it orange alright.
    You want orange? You got orange.
    Thanks for putting the MOGmobile on your blog.
    We do have fun out here.
