One of the immutable questions of my youth was how in the hell did Fred steer that damn car? That went along with why did he choose the formality of a tie while simultaneously foregoing pants? Both conundrums that could keep a young boy who hadn’t yet discovered girls (this was only my freshman year of college, after all!) up at night. My obsession with Fred’s sled was apparently shared pretty universally, as there’s a mess of people out there how have tried to replicate the Bedrock Bentley.
The 1994 live-action version of the Flintstones – as well as the Oscar®-robbed sequel Viva Rock Vegas featured a version that shunned accuracy for family values, adding a back seat.
Eschewing turning or even moving, this Flintstones-themed tourist stop version is more park bench than parkway. Of course an order of Bronto-Ribs would be less likely to flip a car over on its side if it’s been staked to the ground.
