Re: Media coverage of the Cessna 310 Lemons car project

Apparently the Star Gazette in Istanbul did an article today on the Spirit of Lemons.

They were beaten to the punch by four days, though, by another such story in Istanbul:

Many laughs were had while watching the expressions of people.

I'm looking forward to watching dashcam footage from driving it around after you register it as a 'rod.

Re: Media coverage of the Cessna 310 Lemons car project

Google translate makes fun of English with Turkish translation...

Jeff Bloch's eye above the other in the United States engaged in car racing. Bloch living in Maryland, a mixture of air-car made an instrument.
1987 model Cessna 310 aircraft, a 1956 Toyota minivan that combines a piece of the man, 'Spirit of Lemons' has produced a machine that gives the name. Bloch taken by the removed part of the Cessna, and many are reported to be in very poor condition. 5 months as a result of intensive work with a maximum speed of 145 kilometers per hour is formed in the tool. Toyota chassis produced by placing the car on the fuselage seems to be very high maneuverability. Holiday-looking car, though, but can go on land. Bloch, traffic, air looking to enter his car taillights, headlights and signal lights will be installed.

Police Jeff Bloch, 40, is best known as "Speedy Cop". All because of the car he often drives through the streets and avenues of Washington (USA). Actually, not quite a car. Jeff bought a Cessna plane, manufactured in 1956 and abandoned for 40 years, and has adapted to urban roads with pieces of a Toyota.

The vehicle was initially built to participate in a race in South Carolina, the 24 Hours of Lemons. But after I got permission to move to the "plane" as a passenger car, the machine Jeff dispute routes and parking space with cars "normal".
"When people see an airplane on a street, the first thought is, 'Oh my God, a plane crashed." On second glance, the thought is:' This is the coolest thing I've ever seen, '"commented Jeff to agency Barcroft Media. Once added the American, a group that drove Ferraris gaped to see the creation of Jeff, who has no training in engineering or mechanics.
