I recall it once burned to the ground, and he ran it in Germany on the autbahns to fullfill itīs potential.

Some more info.
I loved the video up until the guy sat on the hood and fender, I wanted really badly to punch him in the throat. That is a MAJOR pet peeve of mine. I caught a niece of mine sitting on my wifes 65 Skylark years ago. I told her if you want to use the wrong thing for a chair go use the stove, I and directed her towards the stove, go sit on the stove, let me turn the fire on, you wouldn't sit on that why sit on a cars hood! GRRRRRRRRR
