What an incredibly cool thing to have in at your work. I've watched some of the videos which cover bits of the engineering that have gone into the Bloodhound. The work on the wheels alone is just incredible.

Was Scooby-Doo a bloodhound

Talking of "wouldn't be seen dead in" I saw a Focus (must have been one of Fords 'special editions') the other day with a "Thrifty" decal on the back. WTF!
