Good to see that again. I too suspect the Electric Queen stalled and lawn-darted soon after launch.

When a person was going to have pictures taken, one looked "their best"....When a person was going to be in a "video"...He/she was "mighty important". Most model "endevours" were by people who could afford the luxury and there were very few of them....so it was considered a bit of a status symbol to have a modeling hobby. Most old modeling vids (what few there are of them), have the suit-n-tie appearance.

Yep, show up today in a suit and tie and you'll be known as "reverend"...or the "undertaker"... Lol ,not even the Prez gets his picture in one...

Shenanigans! This has to be fake..

There were no gassers standing around commenting that "it just doesn't sound right", and offering him a good deal on a glow trainer.

8 amps? wow.

That plane totally stalled, did you see him launch that and push on the rudder?

I question the 1 mile range on that boat radio.

Very cool though even though I am a movie critic.
