    $10,000 in 1956 is about what… $80,000 in 2012 dollars?

    If you consider sports cars toys you can easily find one that costs more, but I’m willing to bet it won’t have the same kind of trunk space.

    “Mechanical Elephants in America” — there’s a post-punk band name right there.

    That photo is definitely 1970s, so they were still extant then. (Probably two guys from the 50s still inside.)

    I wonder what a real elephant would think of it
