Jay Leno's shows off his rare 1963 Chrysler car powered by a gas turbine engine. The car sounds like a giant vacuum cleaner at the Friday Classic car night at Bob's Big Boy in Toluca Lake.
The fourth-generation Chrysler turbine engine ran at up to 60,000 rpm and could use diesel fuel, unleaded gasoline, kerosene, JP-4 jet fuel, and even vegetable oil. The engine would run on virtually anything and the president of Mexico tested this theory by running one of the first cars - successfully - on tequila. Air/fuel adjustments were required to switch from one to another.
