cool things with wheels
Hmmmm....Well over 50 years ago, aliens came to our lovely green planet in search of specimens. Believing the dominant life form to be automobiles, they kidnapped two of them, a '58 Edsel and a '59 Pontiac. Judging them to be of two different sexes, they whisked them back to Tralfamadore (sorry, Kurt) for their "experiments".....what followed couldn't have been pretty....
I was sure I heard a rumor about a special breeding program in Russia, the details weren't pretty. Animal husbandry isn't all it's cracked up to be, I've heard.
At first I thought this was a rebuilt Maltese bus... but your story sounds more plausible
