The Buns of Steel was inspired by a typical fast food order. It features a big burger on a tray on its back, the roof resembles a pommes frites box and its exhaust pipes are two soft drink cups including cap. Since its 2019 release, the "exhaust soda cups" have been removed and it's now reduced in weight.
The complete vehicle makes a whole fast food meal an actual fast food.
