    Is this or the Van in the link street legal?

    Suprisingly, the van gets 15.2 mpg, even hauling around all that extra steel!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    I thought that sounded high. Has to be a highway figure.

    is it just me or does Johnny Cash's song "One Piece at a time"(you know, the psycobilly cadillac one...) seem like an influence here?

    Gosh!

    Planners better start making parking spaces bigger if that becomes popular.

    Wonder what its turning radius is. Looks like it would need one of those flexible connections in those extra long buses. Either that, or only make left turns.

    Can you imagine pulling up to a construction site in that? Even the building inspectors will give you respect!
