Can anybody with a good eye recognize what kind of car that is/was?

Is that a boost gauge under the cowl? The needle appears to move up when he launches then right before the car rolls there is a whoosh and the needle drops.

Could it be a turbo 5.0 Mustang?

Why was he turning the wheel while he was right side up anyway? And He saved it at first,but when it went the other way,he did'nt turn the wheel the other way as much or as fast. And why did'nt he bother trying to get out,he just kinda sat there like "Ok,Now what?"

He did'nt try to unbuckle the window net or attempt to do a whole lot of nothing. Guess you'd have to be there to see what was going on.
