This weekend marks the 2015 U.S. Sand Sculpting Championships in San Diego, and Chevrolet is joining in the fun with a 2015 Colorado pickup sculpted almost entirely of sand. And I’m not talking a scaled down Colorado, but a full-blown pickup truck, complete with a grille, tires, and even badging.

“It’s a great fit for the Colorado to be partnered with the U.S. Sand Sculpting Championships,” commented Tony Johnson, the marketing manager for the Colorado. “With Southern California being the largest mid-size truck market in the country, the Colorado is right at home here in San Diego.”

I have no idea how these artists are able to do something like this, but watching the process is mesmerizing. Check out the video below as they sculpt the new pickup from nothing but some wet sand. (Although, I have to wonder, do they have to keep spraying down their masterpiece to make sure it doesn’t crumble to bits?)

And here I was thinking that if I dumped a bucket of sand upside down and stuck a twig into it, I had made the world’s most awesome castle.

He has been covering the auto industry for years, with several national auto shows under his belt, but he’s been writing about lots of other things (like dragons and Mickey Mouse and cows drowning in milk) since he was just a tot. Outside of the land of cars, Timothy enjoys watching The Office and consuming excessive amounts of peanut butter and beer, and is on the board of an up-and-coming Dayton theatre company called The Playground. And when he’s not on stage (or three jars into a peanut butter binge), Timothy spends time with his mischievous dog, Greyson. See more articles by Timothy.
