I think Calspeed said yikes because there was a car chase on that same
block a few months ago, and the bad guy went airborn and came down on top
of 4 or 5 parked cars, totaling all of them. There was a homeless guy
sleeping in 1 of them, but no one got hurt. There should be warning signs
at SF intersections to check your car manual before taking a flying leap.

P.S. Drove my '66 Loosie into town today, brrr, cold. Wish the rest of the
country would share some hot weather with us in SF.

I remember seeing Bullet when it first came out on the big screen. Even
though I was sitting in a theater seat, my stomach was flying up and
down. Maybe we can get Michael to video a high speed run through SF
from the roadster or fire truck. As a side note, my new car, a Toyota
Prius, has an owners manual with big warnings signs on each page. One
of the things that is says not to do is take flying leaps with the car.
I guess they didn't put that warning in the SP/SR manuals.
