In 2002 David Best came up with the idea to make the above Beadmobile after being asked by the Germany’s Essen Motor to create an art car for the event. It took over 100 people, mostly passers by and school children, to help glue the thousands (possibly millions) of beads supplied by Fire Mountain Gems and Beads onto the car.
Beadman: “What’s that I hear… a beader in trouble…?”
Tigertail: “Yes, I think it is beadman.”
Beadman: “To the beadmobile tigertail!”
