Body created from 1940’s big body bullet style headlight bucket. Vintage 30’s interior dome lights create the eyes. Fabricated aluminum fins; flexible conduit with interior flex cable makes adjustable legs, two chief leg ends with vintage Datsun engine inspection lamps.

Architeuthis, as the name indicates, represents the successful cloning of a giant squid and certain free floating parts of the genus ‘1932 Ford Truck.’ It now appears that eukaryotic genomic DNA from a squid was injected into host prokaryotes, with further modification by removal of introns and ligating prokaryotic promoters, before the vector transformed the target material to create a free floating biomorphic machine. Sitings off the Costa Brava suggest the form has already replicated.
