Tank Liability Only?
In the July 2012 issue we showed off Gene and Ken Neal’s new tank. Shortly after the brothers bought it, their insurance company contacted them, querying this:
I am trying to clarify the liability exposure on the tank with the company that is providing the liability and products coverage. They would like an explanation directly from you what will you be doing with the tank. You can reply to this email and I will forward to the underwriter.
Thanks in advance for your help.
This is the Neal brothers’ response:
Please consider the following:
We plan on using it as an answer to rush hour traffic jams. We call it our “Traffic Superiority Commuter.”
We are going to use it to take over the world. We really wanted a submarine...but a tank was all we could find on eBay.
We are going to use it to stamp out Prii (multiple of Prius) wherever the scourge can be found!
It will mostly be used as a static display for advertising at our new building and for multimedia advertising.
We are entertaining the possibility of using it at events as a static display to promote our products along with the possibility of movie production prop rental. Though we have no plans in action to do so at this time or before our policy renews next.
Well, technically, only our editor-in-chief goofed, so let’s place blame where it’s due.
In the June 2012 issue, there is a 14-Bolt disc brake story in which we used some brackets we bought online. The name of the shop who makes the disc brake brackets is Blackbirds Custom Trucks, not Blackbird Customs like he had written in the story.
If you need disc brake brackets for your rear axle, check BCT out at www.blackbirdscustomtrucks.com.
