    On Jay Lenos garage tonight there is a 3 minute story about a family whose true last name is Griswold that built the truckster from the movie. Really short but just wanted to share since Jay Lenos garage is on alot and repeated on CNBC, episode is called Getting Away and just aired and is repeating at 1 a.m. I wish he had more wagons on but I dont think Jay is into them.

    Pretty neat. It looks like they did a good job of recreating the overall appearance of the movie car. It's cool that they are taking it out on the road for family trips.
