FAKE!

Not only is it a copy of the flinstone car, but take a few things into account...

1. Why would they need a cut out in the rear of the vehicle? Do you really think they needed to check?

2. There is a steering wheel on the "vehicle" but obivously NO WAY to turn the thing.

3. My most important post... If those were the true remains, they would not be in the conditon they seem. It would be one clump of rock fossilized into the shape of it.

Whats the chances of the creator of Flintstone's knowing prehistoric cars were actually exactly like his/her drawings? And even if it is b.c. they did there homework its too similar and too good of condition, that wood would look like a twig and discoloured and disfigured. This is amazing if true, but fake from jus lookin at the pic.

I don't think that pic is the actual find.

Why would a university lie about facts?
