Turbine Powered '32 Roadster

Flathead Rob, Vaughn and visited the Lemay Marymont Museum last weekend. One of the most captivating cars there was was this turbine powered '32 roadster. It's not really that surprising it was built by a Boeing engineer. What is a little more surprising is that he routinely drove it to work for a while. Word is Boeing reserved a special parking spot for him because because the car has no reverse.

I got curious about it and went looking for any historical references on it. There are plenty of details here. Now I just need to track down some video footage of it running.
