Vehicle Description

Everybody needs one of these, cleaning out the garage, this little car is so much fun, it is thrust powered by 2 GE t-58 turbines, has 4 fuel tanks, power steering, power brakes, fire detection, fire suppression, roll over protection, self starting and quick. I have taken this car to the salt flats twice, the first time it wanted to fly @ 140 mph, but after adding the spoilers and air dam it stayed solid thru 187 mph with a lot more room to go. call me with any ???s @ 515-210-9400 or email me @ sheldahl77@aol.com 20% due within 3 days of end of auction, cashiers check, money order, or wire transfer [deposit only by paypal] Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer, I will include a towbar. Thanks

By the way, if those are real engines, where are the air intakes?
Probably in the bottom of the car.
 
automatic... pussy :p
but for real wow!! what is this for? dragging? doesn't the body melt from all that heat?
btw the top speeds he reached are not impressive for those turbines! but maybe thats the most the chasis can take.
 
hehehe, pretty kool idea, the craftmenship looks pretty good. But its so impractical unless you have a salt flat next to your house.
 
hahaha I can see it now.... soon ricers will be adding 15" exhausts and massive front spoilers to their cars and start preaching about there turbine MR2 ... DAWWWwwwwg.

I would like to answer all of the questions but I have to eeek out a living also, the car runs on Jet A fuel, probably will run on diesel fuel but have not tried it, I think its street legal except for this little excessive noise issue, the car is thrust only, it has no reverse, tires are rated @ prox 170 mph, heavy duty brakes and slotted discs includes an intercom and mike and ear peice for your helmet, includes a drag chute but have never needed it air intakes are on the sides and top of the engine cover, no compressor stall thru 145 mph, for fast and salt flats running a modified engine cover is put on it to take the air off the top of the roof to supply more air and keep salt out of turbines, engines are GE T58-3s with logs, a short video is available, send me your email address, file is probably to big for hotmail customers. based upon some of the questions I have had asked, be prepared to sign a long liability waiver.



Well this answers a few of the questions. If the tyres are rated at 170mph then 187 mph is brave (or stupid)... unless if he got different tyres for that.
And he says air intakes are on the sides and the top of the engine cover. I'm surprised the whole thing doesn't get clogged up with sand from the sides when he's on the salt plains...
 
Wow! That's almost as crazy as the jet engined VW Beetle I saw at Santa Pod last weekend. It must be awesomely quick :D

Maybe it isn't a gearbox shifter, more a thrust lever.
