Hahahaha! No, I wouldn't either. The heat coming off that was intense even from my vantage point.

How fast can it go?

I believe it was doing over 300 MPH last year at the L.A. County Airshow, it has gone 376 MPH.

One of the first Darwin Award stories I ever read was a guy who strapped a JATO (jet assisted take-off) unit to a Chevy Impala. Now whether anyone ever really did that or not is debatable, but the story was most humorous, in a macabre sort of way. And now I see something like it for real.

Nice to see they've found some sponsorship to keep it going. The last time I saw it, I figured it wouldn't be around much longer.
