Go Back   VW Forum - VZi, Europe's largest VW, community and sales > Community > Chat/Discussion

Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

Chrysler 'Jet Turbine' prototype car





50 were built and tested by 203 drivers between 1963 and 1966. Between all of these drivers, over a million miles were covered by the cars. All but nine of these were destroyed, two are kept by Chrysler, five are in museums, and two are owned by private collectors.

I think Jay Leno has one, saw an interview with him & James May and they were out for a drive in it. Mental thing!

Jay Leno has some great videos, it's worth having a look through some of them. For some reason I really like the resto updates he does, he has a few guys that work for him restoring cars. I'd imagine it works out a lot cheaper for him with the amount of cars in his collection!
