    That was a great story you'll have to make it an ongoing series. Somehow I could see someone trying to do this. Keep up the good work.

      The sad part is... you know there is someone out there saying "Yeah, that happened to mine, too!"

        A+ for you. I started reading this and like everyone I was thinking, here we go again with the whacker moblie. I got about half way through and a tear formed in my left eye. It is so good to get some humor in these posts. Great 1st impression.

            Hey, what about the electronic siren? You need two sirens of differing tonal range and harmonic resonance in order to have the greatest frequency penetration and distance. Don't you know ANYTHING??!!!?!? You'd better add a G.E. Powercall to your p.o.v. just in case. Take care and be safe.

              No no no, you are thinking to small for a POV. If you really want to clear some old ladies from your path, mount an Outdoor Warning siren on your roof. If it is an old mechanical one, you may need to use 2 for counter torque. Then if there is a lot of traffic, just crank it all the way up and it will probably lift you off the ground and you can fly over the other cars. If you mount 5 or 6 Grover airhorns facing back on your trunk, you can use them as boosters to push you forward once in the air ( a few more in the front to use as brakes.)

                If you put it on your motorcycle, mount it sideways ... you get another 10-15 MPH out of it !! Or maybe put it on a sidecar. That way you have room to mount the pushbumpers to add extra strobelights (as if there is such a thing as "extra" lights) and maybe 4 or 5 of those little deer whistles backwards so they jump out in the road as you drive by.

                  Very good Ifear.

                  Reminds me of the time our only paid guy (I was still in NJ) had to stop his pumper during an emergency response because all the jury-rigged wiring under the dash started smoking. Well he was alone, and walked with quite a limp (this is not a joke). By the time he got an extinguisher and got back to the cab, the inside was fried up really good.

                          What ya have to do is to run a belt from the Q to another alternator, so that when the Q winds up, it spins its own alternator up, creating the neccessary current. Kinda like one of them there perpetual motion thingies, it becomes self sufficient once it is turned on. If you kin find an undersized pulley for the alternator, then you kin make enough juice to fire up all of them edge bars too, and you kin probably add a few more lights and an inverter so you kin put a laptop in there with a cell modem and post here from your car, while responding. Wouldn't that be so cool!???

                            Tried desparately to find a picture of our "county chief's car" to upload to you. It's like a 72 Impala (with a Q screwed to the hood) hand/brush painted red with misc lights (the old Georgia Highway Patrol bubble gum machine on the trunk).

                            This vehicle has the words "joe blow" chief car painted on the door and then will mysteriously be dropped off in the chiefs station parking lot. He usually throws a fit, then has it explained to him, hides it for 6 months or so and then repaints "ed smith" on the side and drops it off in another fire station parking lot in the county. It just keeps moving around.

                            At last glimpse its now a convertible (someone sawzalled the roof off)

                            Fears post made think of it, thought you'd all get a hoot out of the idea of the Johnson County Chiefs car)

                              Where I come from, that is called a WHACKER! It's amazing, society says the youth of today have no goals and don't put there mind to anthing!
