    Post Steam driven car breaks land speed record

    Not even slightly map related, but very cool nonetheless:

    Ok that's incredibly cool. And suddenly steampunk doesn't seem quite so farfetched

    Neat Stuff... Jesse James (here in the US) is/was supposed to be doing something with a hydrogen? powered car - didn't get to see the show when it aired.

    That's pretty cool. While watching the video, I was reminded of the sequence in Buckaroo Bonzai. I also was thinking of a steampunk/Mad Max mash-up.
