So, I’ve been doing some reading about the car after I saw this article. The only change Elvis made to the car was to paint it red. The Chevy V8 was added by a DJ who was the 3rd owner of the car. While Elvis owned it, it had the 3.2L V8 that it came with.
I used to live of the end of runway 31 of Atlantic City International/NAFEC and I would have these and just about every other type buzzing my house all day. I loved when the KC10s from Ft. Dix would shoot T&Gs. Once in a while you could get the drivers to wave at you. Great vid!
Less fatigue since nobody has to lay in an awkward position in the back of the plane perhaps.. Not having to engineer said pod in the back.. Eventually making it fully computer controlled maybe.
