thebookmann wonder of the world : Port of Spain
The Prime Minster reportedly has completed his customized Foreign use roll on and roll off 2003 Nissan Alma especially shipped in parts from Japan. The car, named, the Caroni, sources confirm has a state of the art automatic gear transmission, air condition and power windows.

It includes bullet proof glass, an armoured body, a separate oxygen supply, and a sealed interior to protect against any chemical attack. The latter will be tested as they pass the Beetham Landfill and spanking new wall built on the wrong side of the highway. The beast is rumored to withstand a small rocket-propelled grenade once the President has stepped away safely away from the vehicle. The tires can run flat aptly in time to drilled by the planks embedded with nails, thrown across the Beetham road.
But with all the technology the Beast has in place, Organizers are comcerned over the driver's ability to react quickly enough to avoid the random potholes.
