Unashamed willy waving I know, but I know Peter Collinson's (director) son who I raced against in Angelsey a few years ago, and he gave me a copy of a book about the film signed by his widowed wife.
He was actually there when it was all being filmed but doesn't remember much about it as he was only a tiny nipper.
His dad drank himself to death apparently.

You can find a decent number of 'unofficially' juiced up mobility scooters in Cornwall. The usual excuse is that because there are so many hills regular ones aren't up to the task but having seen the expressions on some of the people using them I'm pretty sure they are only a couple of Sanatogen away from attaching spikes and going all Mad Max on the pedestirans.  eeek:

Whats the difference between street legal in the US and UK?  rubschin:

World's only actual turbine powered Bat car (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZSBpFMWk-M#)

Speed bumps may be a problem but just the sound of that turbine going through town would be worth it.

Haven't seen that one yet, I did find a load of footage about upgraded golf carts but I can't really make any comments about that.  redface:
