Dreamscape, as an old car buff and a hot rodder when I first saw a picture years ago of the stainless 38 ford I couldn't believe it.  After some research I found that there was I believe four of the fords made from stainless for a American steel company as a advertisement gimmick and as a perk for top salesman that got to drive them for a period of time.  Thanks for the picture.  John

Unless I'm blind in one eye and can't see out of the other, I think the placard says 1936.  Wink

I think that is low sulphur as opposed to the new ULTRA low Sulphur.  Newer engines must use ULTRA low sulphur (per manufacturers & EPA).  Glad I still got an old engine.  Jack

Jeremy, What the hell is that???

The first thought in my mind was that I would not want to be the driver responsible for all those passengers.  That thing belongs on rails.

Actually it had two drivers who drove simultaneously, although one of them couldn't handle it and kept passing out from fright.

It's Cyclops, the world's first and only nuclear-powered bus!

Jack,
It says it will damage older engines.
All the stations around here have similar warnings.


The labels in the pictures state that it is prohibited in 2007 and later models (meaning newer models) and that it will damage those.  That is because they are specifically built for the ultra low sulpher diesel to meet the new emissions standards. Too much LSD (low sulpher diesel) will plug up their sinuses.   Wink

Using low sulfur Diesel (500ppm) in the newer engines will not ruin the engine-it will just plug up the particulate trap alot faster and possibly contaminate the catalytic converter.  If you have an engine without the Diesel Particulate Filter, ANY Diesel fuel will work.  Good Luck, TomC

Nick-


I assume it is a full size prop rather than a model; there's another pic of it in this clip:



There is one other scene ('you eat one foot and they call you a cannibal') from the film on Youtube. If anyone can find any others anywhere I would like to see them!

This movie was the first ever film I saw at the cinema - I would have been five or six years old at the time, and I guess it had a big impression on me at the time as I haven't seen it since but still remember a lot of the details. Who knows, maybe it was responsible for me being a 'bus nut' now!
