Actually, I laughed when I saw this. I'm not impressed by it in the least. Looks rather redneck to me.

Strap the same engine to a Geo Metro. It'll go just as fast, and get twice the mileage.

I still remember watching it drag race a plane at an airshow 15years ago.

Impressive little truck.









Oh, and Les Shockley's other jet truck... 3 engines this time.
Possibly sharing parts, or a rebuild on the same chassis... I have no idea.

I've seen this truck and many other Les Shockley vehicles run at our local drag strip over the years. He lives(or lived) just a few miles from me. They are kinda cool the first time you see them but after that they are meh.
