"Frictionator" Pick Up Truck is Jet Powered and Street Legal

Ahh, so this is what happens when you strap a 7000 horse-power General Electric J85 Jet Engine (with a 200mph top speed) to a Ford F650 pick up truck. Slightly underwhelming video after the jump.

As you might have guessed, a standard front engine avoids the afterburner setting cars on fire when the Frictionator hits the streets. [Frictionator via Jalopnik]
