Car, Beetle

[Geek] Rocket-Beetle

I consider myself a bit of a mad scientist at times. But this guy takes the prize. He literally added a jet engine to a VW New Beetle (in fact, the same model as Skuld, just a different color), and made it WORK.

Scariest note: 'Jet intake keeps sucking rose out of bud vase.'


The T58's a commercial engine from General Electric. You can't buy them new any more, but you can buy them piecemeal.

- Check out this article, it explains where he got it from. :)

- You can often find some really kickass stuff in military surplus sales.

- In Tucson Arizona, there is a HUEG LIEK XBOX graveyard of almost-functional aircraft. They can be yours if the price is right!
