Check Out This Nintendo on Wheels

Published by Nadeem Muaddi on March 25th, 2012

Sherod Grayer, a 25-year-old gamer from Georgia, has transformed his 1991 Chevy Caprice into a Nintendo on wheels – spray-painting NES controllers on the exterior and customizing the interior to pay homage to the brothers that started it all. Of course, he also installed a drop-down TV in the headliner to play video games on.

While I don’t share Sherod’s love for the Super Mario Bros, I do give him credit for his vision and originality. The color combination screams Nintendo and the embroidery looks great. I wouldn’t expect to score a lot of dates driving this thing around, but hey – to each his own.

What do you think? Let’s have a round table discussion in the comments section below.

    Is it all embroidery, or screen printing on the vinyl? Pics aren’t close enough to see the detail, but it is very clean. The stitchwork looks clean and straight, albeit pretty basic with the different colors making the busy look.

    I wonder how long before Nintendo has the lawyers sending a letter telling him to cease and desist, unless he got full permission from them?? I put logos on things, but this is really in your face.

    Exteriorwise, it bites. Looks like a cop car with graffiti.

  2. Because the rear seat backrest is shaped like a rectangle, I would have sewn it to look like one big Nintendo controller.

    Thats the one thing with the car hobby/industry…to each their own. Not anything I like but creative non the less, and good craftsmanship. Its what the customer wants,they pay for it, we can only suggest our professional opinion and go rom there.

  4. RETIRED… I THINK ITS COOL , MAYBE NITENDO WOULD LIKE HIM TO SHOW IT PLACES ALSO. MAYBE NEXT TIME CONTACT THE MAKER OF PRODUCT BEFORE HAND LIKE DO ONE OF THE NEW SUMERMAN/WONDER WOMAN COMIC. SEEN THIS ON THE CBS NEWS. EVEN DO ONE OF DONALD TRUMPS SHOW HE MAY HAVE A BIG THING HERE.AND THERES ALWAYS THE LOCAL COLLEGE OR HIGH SCHOOL AND TO GET IN GOOD WITH THE MAYOR DO ONE FOR THE POLICE STATION .
