I was allowed to sit in this beast. Though my fear of damaging anything muddled the experience, I tried to take myself back almost a quarter century to imagine the limits a fortunate few may have experienced in that very seat. (The owner drove it more frequently than you might imagine.) It really is an impressive sight to behold.
