Mom and kid stop by to check-out strange Banana Car
It's not everyday I drive from Hur to Mt. Zion and spot a car that looks like a banana, accompanied by a car that looks like a toaster.
The strange vehicles were parked along Rt. 16 at the Mount Zion Cemetery, the drivers no where to be seen.
Being the dutiful reporter, I waited around a little while to talk with the drivers, but after snapping a couple photos I went on down the highway.
Accompanying the Banana Car, was a Toaster Car, I haven't found
much about it ... maybe they're waiting for a Peanut Butter Car
One vehicle had a website across the windshield, so when I got home I looked up the story behind the banana car, and the toaster car.
The Banana Car is on a journey to circle the world.
Steve and Spade Braithwaite, AKA "The Dirty Brothers" are making a documentary film about building a huge banana car and then driving it from point A, around the world and back to point A.
"The world is a wonderful and amazing place and what better way to see it than from the comfort of a large banana car," said Braithwaite.
The Banana Car and its driver is one of several folks who have taken the back roads of Calhoun County on cross-country or world treks. We have encountered several such fascinating folks.
Perhaps the cross-country walker that few locals knew about was a Calhoun visit from famous musician, songwriter and actor Art Garfunkel, formerly of "Simon and Garfunkel."
