A British inventor has spent $25,000 turning a pick-up truck into an ap-pealing driveable banana. Steve Braithwaite, who is originally from Woodstock, Oxfordshire, spent two years building the vehicle - which has a top speed of 85mph. The 55-year-old, who now lives in Kalamazoo, Michigan, came up with the idea for the Big Banana Car in 2009. The expensive concept cost around $25,000 and took Steve more than two years worth of Sundays to create. The finished vehicle is 10ft tall and 22ft long but its 302ci Ford V8 engine still allows it to hit impressive speeds.
