ROFLMAO... quote from the builder/driver who sits NEXT to the jet intake inside the car: "It's a little windy inside but not unbearable"

Wow, it's days like this that I just love the internet. I think he needs to start figuring out how to put wings and a tail on that Vee Dub. He just dropped it like it vas hot.

As for his wife's scooter, I'm thinking that may not be a smart thing to do. I seem to recall a story about a jet-powered Chevy in the salt flats or something and the only thing left of the driver were a few bits of teeth and bone after the crash. Those two engines look like they're a bit much, hehe.

Urban legend. Or suburban legend, whatever.

Desert legend.

The things got a twelve foot long shaft of white hot plasma coming out the back of it and it's street legal? As he said, the DMV didn't anticipate this baby.

Rocking.

It's street legal only if he is not using the jet. The original motor is in the car, so he can drive it "regular".

I bought my wife a 1.8T New Beetle S a few months back. Great little car! Heaps of fun!
Great all around car, lots of electric issues but thats nothing new for VW owners.
Apparently VW is currently in court agenst James What with regards to his laws and theories with regards to electronics!
Any way long story short, ok yah so he put a freaking jet ingine in there but it looks horrible! and its been done before. Remember that monster garage thing with the Jet powered Cellica?
What this guy should have done was replace the engine with a turbine and made it an all wheel drive electric turbine driven car! that way he could run on jet all the time!
Kind of sort of like Jay Leno's jet bike.

That's too bad. I had visions of him incinerating an entire chapter of the local Hell's Angels at a stop sign. I love this stuff about America, blokes with jets in their cars and runways out the back of the house and stuff.
