The Car With No Sex Ap-peel.
Pennsylvania man's banana car peels through Flint
Jul 01 2011
A Pennsylvania man cruised into Flint, Mich., this week in his giant, motorized banana and parked it on the bricks of Saginaw Street.
Some looked confused. Many snapped pictures. Three teen aged boys tried to peel it.
Banana car owner Steve Braithwaite tells The Flint Journal he had no idea how much he was going to enjoy people laughing and smiling at him.
The Coopersburg, Pa., resident with Flint ties brought the former pickup truck back through the area, more than two years after buying the original vehicle from a junkyard in Genesee County's Argentine Township.
Braithwaite decided one day he wanted to turn a Ford F-150 into a banana and travel the world in it.
So, what he calls his "crazy desire to do something ridiculous" became a yellow-tinged reality.
