Kalamazoo’s Big Banana Car Going On An East Coast U.S. Tour
The Big Banana Car is synonymous with Kalamazoo, and it has definitely seen its fair share of travels in the past. Steve Braithwaite, who owns the Big Banana Car, has taken it across a tour of the United States already and even had a book illustrated about his journeys, and who he met along the way.
The Big Banana Car is about to hit the road. We will be taking a leisurely drive south from Michigan with no particular route in mind. We will be looking for couchsurfing hosts and places to give rides. I have a friend from England visiting and I want to show him the sights. Like me, he is a long-time hotrodder and so for him "the sights" are everything from historical US landmarks to junkyards with rusty old cars.
If you can host the two of us we would love to give you and your family banana car rides as a thank you. I will regale you with entertaining and amusing tales of the banana cars travels and my friend Chris might make you a cup of tea.
