Default Re: steam bicycle

Today, I didn't see a steam bike, but this post reminded me and I have to tell somebody what I saw. Driving home, going east on Troy Rd. I was behind a rustbucket of a pickup truck with what looked like an odd assortment of metal tanks and pipes and junk, and a woodburning stove up by the cab THAT WAS SMOKING! While they are driving.

Did I see a steam powered truck? A woodburning truck maybe? Is the heater core shot and this is how they heat the cab in the winter? How many reasons can there be for somebody burning something in a woodstove in the bed of a truck while they are driving? Dang, people out here are so weird.
