That is pretty cool.

I love this quote from Wired

Despite all the muscle, Patrick doesn’t race. “I’m 49, so frying some 16-year-old who just saw The Fast and the Furious doesn’t do anything for me,” he says. But he has been known to light up Northern California’s freeways on weekdays between 2 and 3 am. “More than one late-night truck driver on I-5 has been passed by a low-flying comet.” If you don’t see Patrick’s ride there, you may be out of luck – his hot rod is just too much for car shows. When he entered it in the Los Angeles Grand National Roadster Show in January, he was greeted with disparaging looks and scoffs from the gearhead elite. So when the winners started revving their V-8s, Patrick responded by firing up the jet and blasting out a 6-foot-long flame. Officials screamed at him to shut it down, and then banned him for life. Luckily, he’d already received a special prize for Best Compact Custom. [link (http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/14.07/start.html?pg=10)]
