I was not aware that Christchurch had an "Official Wizard", but its seems the council was actually paying him...

I hear Donald Trump is going to guest star on an upcoming episode of SNL.

He will be doing a a skit playing Alec Baldwin shooting a cinematographer!

I think hybrids will fare better, it is fully electric where people get skilled at using the regenerative braking as a overall control and don't use the brakes.

That would stop melt BMW i3/i8's sitting on your back bumper...

Fixed that for you!

On a serious note, have you ever seen a turbine car in person? I saw a Honda CRX with a jet engine cruising around a busy shopping center, and the thing couldn't get out of its own way. Think turbo lag...x100! Think VW Mk1 diesel climbing a steep hill. Think 0-60 MPH on a calendar.....

I guess you didn't read the description. That Beetle still has the stock drivetrain up front.

I read a story where Dr. Ron Patrick (turbine bug) applied for a HOV lane permit because that beetle used an alternative fuel.

He sells some top quality A/F ratio standalone units too.

I saw a rocket truck at Santa Pod raceway years ago, can't remember which engine it used.
