Good thing there was a lack of red lights back then, stop too long & have roasted nuts. That's most likely why they wanted something that would go at least 40MPH.

I knew it was possible! That's it - I'm building one! :D

Could make a boiler out of coiled copper line. Wouldn't need much water. Then put a little propane burner under it & hook up those little 1lb camping bottles. Now if I could only build an engine .... :gee:
