They were pretty slick on extracting him out of there. They didn't hang about. Had that of been the British Prime minister, the driver would've revved the tits off the car, had the PM out pushing and then given up when the battery died and some students starting hurling eggs.

No,as an ex-CP driver,the whole route would have been recce'd,and driven,the cut-over would have been noted and,steps taken,Secret Service what a joke!
Also,our PM uses utilitarian vehicles,not a wheeled tank.;-)

Cadillac 1 aka The Beast is around 8 tons. They might be able to mod the suspension to get it to run on 'bags, but considering the limited space for them they might not take the weight? Dunno. Caddy 1 is one ugly motherfucker, mind. CMDs Jaguar XJ is the ticket - undoubtedly a lot faster and more chuckable.

Looks like it broke....good ol yankee engineering.
According to many USains of my aquaintance, US engineering came to a grinding halt in about 1984 and hasn't advanced since then.

Just look at almost any purely American designed and produced stuff and you can see what they mean.

True enough, just look at their Humvee thingy. I gather they sold Hummvee to the Chinese, bet they are chuffed.
