The title of this piece refers to a car that is in the upper left hand part of the painting. As a child I was interested in cars and I would often draw hotrods and strange vehicles. The piece has no clear meaning, it is mostly spontaneous. There is a fish figure with big scary teeth in the top right, with water splashing around it. Horizontally across the middle is a long grotesque mass. It has vaguely organic forms in it like a rib cage and intestines, maybe a wee bit of pancreas as well. The forms seem to be slightly oddly skewed and placed. This could be because during the making of it I often turned the painting 90 or 180 degrees to put more imagery on it. It started out vertical and only toward the end did it become horizontal. It is a good example of Abstract Repressionism.
