Base Vehicle: 1982 Ford F-350. Engine(Conventional): Modified Ford 460 cid. (Top Speed 140 mph). Engine(Jet): Modified General Electric J85 (Top Speed +700 mph).

Fuel Capacity: Stardard: 48 gallons, Jet:200 gallons. The Jet Car employs gimbaled hypergolic rocket thrusters to provide vertical lift until the main engine gives sufficient forward velocity for the vehicle's winglets to produce aerodynamic lift for sustained flight. It's also equipped with a secret device called an Oscillation Overthruster, which allow it to drive through solid matter becoming the first vehicle to break the dimensional barrier (driving the Jet Car directly through a mountain in Texas) into the 8th dimension in 1984. It was recently used by Team Banzai for a rescue mission when the Space Shuttle Atlantis was trying to land with a broken front landing gear. Dr. Banzai maneuvered his Jet Car under the Shuttle and used it to take the place of the broken gear.- #8th_dimension #Banzai_Institute #Buckaroo_Banzai #Ford #Pick_up_truck #scifi #truck
