I think they build big oversize cats that hold 20 or so people and then hit speeds of 60mph , I wonder to if it will just sit there and go poof up in smoke, turbine would be the way to go and a high perfomance builder like mystic 50, ol 50 , skater 46, and so on. nah there just going to waste our tx $$ on this mess. art

There is no tax money in the project, they are raising money for vets. Fast or slow, I give these guys a lot of credit for doing something for our fighting men and women.


All profits from the USMSG campaign, which are derived from corporate advertising, media features, souvenir sales event fees, and website memberships, are for the benefit of the National Veterans Foundation.

The NVF has been active for 30 years as a non-profit organization that assists U.S. Military veterans returning from active duty. The founder, a long time Viet Nam buddy of Mr. Gemino's is Floyd "Shad" Meshad. Shad's many years of diligent work and national recognition has provided tremendous benefits for thousands of military veterans. Shad has been working with Veterans since 1970. He was a Medical Service Officer during the Vietnam War, where he counseled soldiers in the field who were suffering from a multitude of psychological and emotional problems resulting from their experiences in combat, including what would later become known as "Post Traumatic Stress Disorder" or PTSD.
