The bands or the vehicles?

You could do Cold War reenactments, I guess.

do you think they would grow if they got watered ?

Gyrate, 'til you've had your fill
Just like a big pnuematic drill
Don't let it go down the drain,
Better hop on the cosmic wagon train!

Can we reshape them to look like montages of big animals eating each other, like a dinosaur park?
-- wagster, Mar 07 2006


ooh--- build a giant organ that works by running the jet engines of old B-52s at the right RPM for each one to produce the desired frequency. Might take awhile to ramp up/down between notes, though.

[+] for the organ bit. Play something evocative of peace.

Or perhaps 'Ride of the Valkyries'?

One question - nose or tail up?
-- putterling, May 07 2006


tails up, heads in the ground
-- xenzag, May 07 2006


Since the Cadillacs were driven into holes in the ground, shouldn't the planes be flown into the ground?

//You could do Cold War reenactments, I guess// I like the idea of this - you largely ignore your enemy, and send all your military advisors to completely unrelated countiries.

For DrC: I'd like to see some of them used to create a really big mobile, suspended over a map of the Soviet Union, with scale-sized mushroom clouds dotting the landscape and a wild-eyed representation of General Jack D Ripper pushing a big red button. There should be plenty of room to set this up at the site of the former Burpelson AFB.

[retart] the link says the caddys were lifted into the holes by backhoe loader. I wouldn't know, I was ignorant of the whole thing til I read the idea.
-- david_scothern, May 10 2006


Actually a few years ago the Caddies were moved via crane to a different position in the same field. Kickass after-party too.

Also - funny this idea should surface NOW. On the 9th of May the local newspaper here printed a sroty about a farmer burying combines. Thats right - large farm equipment. I got the story on my blog because the newspaper requires you register. Funny this should come up now ...
