I think it was mostly just the rear glass and trunk lid removed. While not the workhorse it was, they still use it for a back-up support vehicle if they need to get something to the flightline!

Holy crap, that’s incredible! 1. Firsthand verification from a knowledgeable source; and 2. that airplanes are still being used as school buses there.

I was going to mention how I’d read it’s one of the shortest scheduled flights in the world but forgot to, yeah—five minutes!

I don’t know if I feel comfortable putting one on the Scamp. I definitely don’t want people to touch it, but do I want people to know I don’t want them to touch it?

The Bricklin SV-1 is the best Canadian gull-wing door sports car because I’m fairly sure it’s the only Canadian gull-wing sports car. Read more

Okay, I got the like, here’s the photo. Less chopped than I remembered, really just missing a trunk and rear window, but still an airfield workhorse! Looks like a ‘67? Maybe a Special or something?

Hope he found a good home for it!

Where is the car now? When did you let it go? I, too, have had a two-decade-long fondness for the Squarebird. At about 10 years old, one of the first paint-and-glue model car kits I built was of a ‘66 in the exact same spec as this one.

That car is an all-over-the-place homage: don’t forget it’s got the Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry licence plate, too!

Oh my God, I can’t even describe the WANT I have for this car. I have literally seen the film coming up on 50 times (not bad, considering it’s been out just over 10 years) and my Stuntman Mike cosplay is almost complete. (I’m currently in the process of collecting every academic essay I can find on the film.)

Genius! And if he ever needed to lug home a 454 for an engine swap or something, it’d fit perfectly!

I like the luggage rack look, but Clayton does not, and since it’s his car, I guess I’ll have to break into his garage at night to drill the holes.

Like a Callaway Aerowagen, but made from duct tape and immediate regrets! I love it!

Yeah, that sounds about right. Had never heard of that framework, but it makes a lot of sense.
