Hope this isn't "old news" but this guy decided to put a rocket in his pocket literally. He put a jet engine in the rear of his VW Beetle to make a street legal jet powered car... Yipes...

Well when I first started reading I though "Oh no why the f did he choose a bug." But by the end I was thoroughly converted.

Great project! Thanks Worf.

That is undeniably some of the coolest **** I've ever seen, especially that moped!

Some things strike me, though:

> The guy is obviously loaded; he got a PhD from Stanford for one. Stanford is just a few minutes from where I live, and it is an enormously exspensive university to attend. It's pretty much an "upper crust" establishment.

> The guy can afford to install jet engines in his vehicles, and still have the time and patience to deal with the DMV to get them street-legal.

> Yet, he drives a Volkwagen Beetle?!?! What gives?
