After last week`s Vintage RV column featured J.J. McColm`s Boler-Chevy combo unit, we received a bit more info from J.J. and some great new pictures too. Here is what he sent:

"Here is the matching bike (right down to the rims matching the '38 and '73 Boler ), ride-on custom mounts that attach to the back of the Chev master sedan. The 1938 Chev Master Sedan was assembled in Regina, SK, back when General Motors still had facilities there before WWII."
