  1. What a hoot... be hard to bow. I'd love to hear a sound clip.

    Strange.. i don't think bowing would be feasible at all. People make basses out of just about any large hollow item they can find.

    What a trip! I saw it the other day. I think it's up around $700. Prolly sounds better than some of the other ebay specials...or at least will hold together longer.

    Now ya know that can't be a good thing. How often do you want to purchase instruments that have been relegated to bar decorations?

    Of course I still would like to have it....

    I was pretty interested until I read that the gas tank was from a Lincoln. I have always been a Cadillac guy.
