What would you do if you saw a banana driving down the road?

No, really, a GIANT BANANA CAR!

Can’t think of a better Mellow Yellow photo for the week! BIG YELLOW BANANA CAR!

Every June, for the last 22 years, Fairmount Fire Company in Lansdale has been hosting Under the Lights Car Show. I remember in years past going to see the cars in a shopping center parking lot, but now, they close down the town, at least the main street!

Cars, cars and more cars. I believe there were close to 400 registered this year! Yummy food vendors were along the way, the smell of funnel cake followed me down Main Street. I resisted though! Couldn’t hold my camera, my phone and a funnel cake!

This post is about the BANANA CAR! It’s not the best picture, it was a busy spot, with parents putting their kids in the car for a photo op! I had to wait five minutes for a guy and his girl to get out of my way to get this view. They were talking to the guy (I’m thinking one of the owners) in the yellow chair, and I did not want to be rude!

The BIG BANANA CAR has a Facebook page and a website. You can check them out for more details!
Here’s a video interview of Steve Braithwaite.
He along with his brother and a crew of other folks have built this car. Until I saw this car, and checked out their page, I did not realize that car is housed locally in Coopersburg, PA. Gosh I wish I had the opportunity to see it driving down the road!
The brother’s plan an around the world trip in the car to raise awareness of and money for DVT. Deep Vein Thrombosis. Their mother passed away suddenly from DVT. 
I did not know that more people die from DVT each year than breast cancer, AIDS and traffic accidents combined. I remember when I was in college my father was hospitalized for DVT.
If you are on a long plane flight, make sure you get up and walk around!
Stop in and visit Drowsey Monkey and other Mellow Yellow participants.  Let’s see if they can top a banana car!
