Look at the link I posted... Thats the new optima.... The standard turbo one puts down like 274hp.... I think the K5 is similar to the M or AMG cars....

I absolutely love people like this. They take what they have, adapt/modify or build it and then just get on with it.

The story told is: Hi, JD here in Canada, The hoist in question was not a hydrulic variety but a chain and screw type. The hoist was regularily inspected and was inspected and serviced a couple of months before the incedent. What happened was that the double nut safety device failed and the second safety device split and allowed one side of the hoist to fall. The car in question is my 1968 SS 396 4speed Camaro. It has since been repaired. One note is that to stay clear of the car while raising or lowering as we had removed the stands to lower the car when this transpired.

^^ Those rapid launch life boats look like an E ticket ride to me. Wonder about the seats and belts for launch?
