  1. It just so happens I have a couple of photos laying around here somewhere...

    Took them with my phone when I was out to lunch with the family one day. Pretty sure they're the only ones I've ever seen over here!

    LMAO! Oh my god... I've got one of those buried in my back yard. Seriously.. There is (was ) a ravine behind the house that had two old school buses in it. Late 50's buses. My uncle had left his old Borward sitting here 30 years ago so when my parnets cleared the land for their new house the car was pushed into the ravine with the school buses and covered up with the excess dirt from the construction.

  7. So it's steel? Wow!

    Is it based on a production car or completely custom made?

    Excuse my ignorance, don't have time to look it up. :)
