    Street Legal?

    This guy claims his jet-powered VW Beetle is street legal, but I'm skeptical.

    I'm not skeptical about how friggin' cool it is, though.

    I don't even wanna know what he'd charge to build one of those.

    Then again, maybe I do.

    Sad, but all I can think of is that commercial with the chicken hanging out with the french fries.

    Maybe I do wanna be a french fry.

    That looks ridiculous. He should follow the advice of the car show, regardless of how crappy it may drive.

    That thing looks exactly as described: A VW BEetle with a jet engine attached to the back.

    It does look cool from the air looking down into the rear window, but that's a view only birds get.

    I find it amusing that he has a cassette player in a jet powered beetle.
