Jet-Powered Toyota MR2 for Sale on eBay

Remember back when GE's advertising mission was to "bring good things to life"? We wonder what ol' "Neutron" Jack Welch would think about GE's T58-3 jet turbines being used for such "good things" as an ATV and this Toyota MR2, now for sale on eBay. A novel air dam keeps air pressure heading downward at speeds of over 140 on this modified 1991 — modified to go nearly 200mph, if the current owner's calculations are correct. "I think its street legal except for this little excessive noise issue," he says matter of factly. I'm sorry, officer, can you speak up? [Thanks to Adam for the tip.]
