I will confess to a guilty pleasure, I have a weakness for Hal Needham pictures. The likes of Smokey and the Bandit, Hooper (probably my single biggest guilty pleasure) and of course the Cannonball Run. Hal's mix of incredible stunts, improvised dialog and mad-cap action has always appealed to me. It seems to have resonated with Mad Physicist too, because this is the second MOC from one of his movies. And if you're going to do a cross-country illegal road race, why not do it in an emergency vehicle right?
