Stretch the time frame by only a few years, and the racing Saladin becomes a possibility. With 170 brake horses of Rolls Royce B80 engine and some stripping of excess armour, one could probably get a great deal more than the officially advised 50 mph.

The Saladin only had a 170 hp engine   :o :o :o  my Dodge Ram has nearly 400


But yours hasn't got a gun turret...........  ;D ;)

Weeelll! I've been working on that ----   ;D ;D ;D ;D

If I'm not building models, I'm out riding my dirtbike

I had an idea ages ago to put a 1/24 aircraft engine in a 1/24 truck or car kit, I never got around to build it.
Perhaps something along the lines of SteamPunk might be a better option.

...and that is exactly what they had in mind when they added "the right to bear arms" to the US constitution...

I want one of those with an automatic 'seek and destroy BMWs' software package added to it.

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

I used to play Car Wars and to this day, when somebody cuts me up on the road, I flip up the safety on the non-existent gun button on the wheel and go "brrrrrrrt!" Have to remember not to do it when there are other people in the car though... :rolleyes:

I go "Pew Pew Pew"...especially when the person in front of me doesn't understand the concept of the posted speed limit (usually by going slower)

I used to have a PA system on my car with a bullhorn up front and I'd verbally chastise people using my CB radio.  ;D ;D

I use a dirty mark on the windscreen as an aiming point and track it onto target by moving my head.
When someone cuts in front of me I shout "RAMMING SPEED".
Like Archer I have to remember not to do these if not alone.

On the receiving end, I had hellfire and brimstone rained down on me. :wacko: :wacko: :wacko:

I was driving on a holiday in Texas and I messed the priorities at a junction.  The guy blasted his horn, sped up to pass me and brandished a cross that he had hanging from his mirror!.  He then glowered at me instead of looking where he was going then pulled right in front of my nose forcing me to brake. I'd have been pretty p!ssed off if I could have believed what  I saw!
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
