    I thought he has single axle trucks as well. And the dual axle trucks were able to go faster. I also read somewhere that the car was in possession of Speedy Bill Smith. I asked a worker there, and they had no knowledge of it.

    I think A.J. Watson built a copy of the car, in the 90's.

    Good stuff, in spite of crappy handheld filming. Mercedes car is gorgeous.

    Awesome film, I couldn't help but notice the daredevil spectator sitting in the grass in front of the wall.
