In his explanation of the Reboot Buggy, artist Joey Ruiter states, "the automobile starts with the simple task to move us from one point to another. Anything extra is purely for our personal comfort and enjoyment."

Speaking volumes about the way he views cars and this particular project, the artist demonstrates the true spirit of the vehicle as he strips away any fancy add-ons, leaving just the purely mechanical implements behind. By building a car, the artist was able to connect even further with the minute aspects of what goes on behind the shiny facade and plush leather interiors, to the true core of the machine.

The Reboot Buggy makes a statement about how far today's cars have strayed from the original concept.
