Whilst watching the same show, make sure you catch the off-road motobility scooters

Is the Rover with the jet engine still in the Science Museum?

I had the same model, a P4 Cyclops, fitted with a Land Rover engine.

Didn't have quite the same cachet!

Jeremy was like a little boy, with his hands grasped on that 'hula-hoop' of a steering wheel...oh I forgot, he IS a little boy...in a big man's body.

Thanks QB.

I thought the German car was quite good very basic and looked a lot of fun to build. It was alive popping and banging flames, smoke it had it all.
