    you strap a jet engine to anything and it will fly
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    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.
