Priceless! I bet it's given a few people ideas on how to stop it now.

Did you see how thick the doors were? I onnce saaw Maggie's Jag with the door open and that was about an inch thick, but the 'Beast'!

(BTW, why did thhey give POTUS such a fugly car?)

I had a chuckle at that. The funniest bit was the people moving smartly away when it grounded.

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.

You get the impression that the onlookers and Gardaí almost expected it to explode, or deploy lasers or something....

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.;-)

The Soviets figured this out in 1959. Belly Wheels...

Step forward the BRDM-2
I'm sure the Hungarians are still using these, I've seen a couple around KAIA doing fuck all except taking up parking spaces.

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.
