With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Cool Video

Cool video, I sure do appreciate the ease of driving more after watching this. I'm still a little confused about all of those peddles! lol I also like the fuel tank under the seat, it will make you pay attention more when driving.

When I was growing up (about 20 years ago), my dad's daily driver was the Model A, which was so much more modern than this car. It was great.

Thanks for sharing.
I talked to my Dad last night and he said that the throttle was the same on his Model A. I don't remember that at all.

I have seen a couple of those around my area, and quite honestly, they look like they ride pretty good. Id like to take one for a spin.

i got to drive an A once. pretty neat! a friend of mine's grandfather has two A's and one T. we used the A for a beer run. my friend was 3 sheets...so i got to drive! had to get a quick lesson on just how to operate...can't remember details now, but it wasn't difficult. just a bit different. the thing that impressed me was how you can lug the enigine down to like 400 rpm's without stalling. you can start up an incline and let off the gas...it will just chug along. the rumble seat also kicks ass...as does the very neccesary ooogha horn lol
