Remember the Icicle Audi of Winter 2011? Well, we'd like to believe this is a warm weather tribute to it. Knit warrior Olek's springtime homage to the car that fed the headlines for weeks, if you will. The car is currently set up at Elizabeth and Broome Streets, and is much more colorful than this boring monochromatic one we saw back in 2009. But either way, do you think this kind of DIY car cozy is an effective anti-theft device, and will it exempt you from alternate side of the street parking? Discuss.
