        Didn't one of James' specials talk about those? I swear I have a memory of James on one and asking if he could drive.

          I thought this thing was too awesome to be lost in that thread. It deserved a thread of its own.

            Ah yes, you're right. Here are some clips and a (lame) article in fact. Neat pictures though, very neat. I like looking at modern near-ruins like that.
