Biodiesel jet car packs a punch

Exerting 7,500 horsepower, and 7,000 pounds of thrust while burning 24 gallons of canola bio-diesel fuel per run, Kevin Therres fired up his jet car on Sunday afternoon as part of the 10th Annual Bruno Show and Shine.

It was my first time seeing the vehicle in action, so naturally, not fully aware of how loud that puppy roars, I got as close as I could to capture video. My ears, my ears.

The silly thing, and perhaps a glimpse into my life was that I was remotely on location for the event, and had the equipment necessary to talk on air with me. Among that equipment is headphones, to which remained around my neck, rather than over my ears.

Check out the pictures and video below.

Watrous hosts annual Show and Shine

funrun

Word of mouth, and almost 25 years of the Watrous Fun Run Show and Shine has led to growing audiences and entrants over the years.

Quite frankly, as long as a vehicle has four wheels and gets me from Point A to B is about all the extended interest I have in vehicles myself, but I was amazed to see how many vehicles were in the show and shine this year. It's fantastic to see so many people supporting local events and helping them continue to grow year in and year out.

Check out the video below for a run down the line of vehicles... it took my best five minutes of speed walking to get from the start to the end.

Bruno's up next with their 10th Annual Show and Shine on Sunday.
