Darren and Ed, collectively known as the Junk Mafia, have a local radio and cable TV show directed at the repurposed and antique crowd in the Kansas City area. They have a rat rod wagon that they take to events and shows. Darren approached Chelle about working her magic on the car and she agreed.

We asked a local mall of they would like to have it placed in the food court so people could watch the progess, and they loved the idea, so off it went to the Great Mall in Olathe, Kansas for Stellas conversion.

Chelle hand painted the entire car and it turned out a fabulous combination of steampunk, batman inspired, impressionistic greatness!
