I just want to know for what purpose is the guard on the front bumper? If you hit anything that could conceivably be on the tracks, that guard will find itself on the rear bumper!
I do like the air horns, though. Sort of a "Mouse that roars" scenario.
I can just imagine someone hearing those horns, looking around for the source, then falling down with laughter.

It's a psychology thing to make the operator feel safe, much like how some people think that certain paint schemes make cars go faster.

This car is kind of "copy" of Polish series SP42 which has handrails on its fronts.

Nah. I don't recall Kirk or McCoy speaking Romulan in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn, and nobody spoke Romulan in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, both movies featuring the consumption of Romulan Ale.

Fun Fact: the Blue Food served to the command crew and Klingon delegates in Star Trek VI was blue colored squid.

I've never eaten squid. Does it taste Romulan? :think:

Depends on how it's cooked. The stuff on the set was raw. Raw squid makes me want to worship the porcelain gods. Cooked squid can be really good, so much as it is not overcooked.

Is it that what I have to expect from "Romulan Ale"? :shifty:
