Some credit it to Montana, others Maine, but being as the design may be replicated many times under authorization of the architect it could be both, and there could be more out there.

Cool, not a full time residence, sort of a tree-house.

That's got to be up there as far as cost per square feet, that 200 SF cost them some, but oh what a view.

She has tires that are crap and probably not much experience in a 90" wheelbase car with a fair amount of power getting loose.

This poor guy had his BMW based suspension break.

That kind of power can give you a headache and tunnel vision.

If it was her first time stepping on it like that she could have phased out the moment it took off.

Modern TC, Stability Control, and Anti-Lock brakes help a lot.

I wouldn't blame the tires, that thing bit and took off despite spinning them.

It did look a bit damp in the video.

Trust me, those tires are horrible for that car and she did roll through some water, but even if she had not those do not hook up well. The car took off because they weigh very little. If it had posi it probably spun one, transferred power to the one with better traction, got her sideways and by then it was too late.

The GT II and BFG Radial T/A are called slicks for a reason.
