I get a grin just thinking about it.

An Obstacle Reduction or HEDP round would be so much more gratification as it explodes into a fireball. A sabot would just pierce that crappy carbon hood, the engine block, the interior, and then keep going for another mile or so behind it.

Wasn't the electric safari car the brain child of "Jurassic Park"?

I saw this thing about a month ago. It was being worked on in the same place that Dale's 130 was at. The staff was laughing at how much of a piece of crap it was. I guess some of the interior trim is leather with cardboard as a backing. I thought it was just bought when it was sitting there. I guess the buyer had some remorse.
