    I didn't see this posted anywhere and thought it was quite interesting. Now if only I had the big bucks to afford one of these.

    I just would like it if he would post more info about it. Apparently it is using a Boeing turbine engine from a decommissioned military helicopter, semi-auto transmission and all racing components.

    He needs to post some performance data. So we can all know the horsepower, torque, 1/4 mile, handling and MPG data.

    Though it is still missing the rear rocket engine for that extra boost and the heavy armor plating:rolleyes:.

    "Thanks for picking up the groceries honey"
    WHAT?
    "I said Thanks for picking up the groceries honey"
    WHAT? I CAN'T HEAR YOU. WHAT DID YOU SAY???
    "I SAID THANKS FOR PICKING UP THE GROCERIES YOU IDIOT!"
    YES, I WOULD LIKE PICKLES ON MY TUNA SANDWICH"

    Why does a dog lick itself?
    Because it CAN, not because it should.
