Thanks to all of you and our sponsors at Ford who enabled us to create the Happy Mutant Mobile, a heavily-mutated 2014 Ford Transit Connect Wagon that embodies much of what we (and you) imagined for a Boing Boing road machine. (Original announcement here and check out all the posts here!) Please enjoy these photos of the final road machine as masterfully modded by Theresa Contreras and her talented team at L&G Enterprises in San Dimas, California.

And thank you to Archie McPhee, legendary providers of unusual toys, novelties, and gifts for their instant collection of wonders that filled the Happy Mutant Mobile's Cabinet of Curiosities.
