It walks, it talks and it crawls on it's belly.........Nope it's not a circus act.

We are transitioning from stills to video for the present.

Have a look at video of the Target 550 streamliner moving under it's own power.

This came from the testing at Woodburn, Oregon dragstrip.

Thanks to Ray the Rat for the editing.

Test #2 wouldn't open for me -- "internal server error".  #1 was fine -- and a happy sounding motor, car, and (no doubt) crew).

SSS, maybe try it again. It just opened the file. I had no problem with it.

Thanks.  I tried it twice (the first time) on the Apple - and it didn't open either time.  Just now I used a Wintel 'puter and it opened just dandy.  Thanks for the reminder to try again.

Lane choice depends on how well he qualifies.

They have already made gearing changes just to do these tests.

He can't red light.

No lights.

He is a streamliner so he can start on the long course and he has a blue hat.

We will see if better quality sound can be provided before long.

Any video that was available was used just to show that it is a mobile piece.

Thanks for enjoying it and thanks to RtR for doing the editing.

He didn't have much to work with.
