Auto enthusiast Perry Watkins managed to pick up a 1958 Volkswagen truck from Oklahoma and spent $64,555 over five years transforming it into a jet-powered drag strip monster, called the "Oklahoma Willy". It now comes equipped with a 5,000 brake horse-power fighter jet engine, that enables it to hit a top speed of 300mph.

I had no idea how the car would react, it is after all 60 years old and as aerodynamic as a brick. The car could have spun out of control, flipped or even taken off as the 5,000 lbs of thrust was applied.
