Separated at Birth Part 2

You may recall the eerie similarity between the Stroh's Beer Can Car and the V-8 Juice Roadster. Well it looks like we've found another pair of "brothers-in-wheels."

The connection between the Topsy Turvy Bus and the Ben & Jerry's Flipped Out Sample Vehicle is much clearer: Ben Cohen.

In 2007 the ice cream mogul commissioned the creation of the bus to protest military spending. It seems he just couldn't seem to get the idea out of his head because in 2009 the B & J Sample Vehicle showed up on the roads doling out tasty treats to the lactose tolerant.

Currently the Topsy Turvy bus resides at the Teva Learning Center in New York and travels to teach kids about how to be environmentally friendly. So it seems this upside-down idea is getting plenty of mileage.

Now roll the credits!
