1982 BMW 323i Baur
Memorial Day 2010 First Drive 1982 323i BMW Baur Lapisblau M20 5 speed #4154 of 4595 made. The car was imported to California by Dietel Enterprises. I have since changed the wheels, installed the clear turn signal lenses, and I am in the process of installing a new cabriolet roof. I have to do something about those bumpers, too. :) I love this car! To see one of the reasons why, check my post "Score One For the Good Guys" on 6/26/2011.

Real and flying Rocket Belt
For the first time you can buy a real and a flying Rocket Belt
This is real flying machines in ready to fly conditions, this Rocket Belt design was test flown by Bill Suitor the best Rocket Belt pilot from Bell, this Rocket Belts are the most powerful ever produced and they have lifted a pilot with a weight of 304 lbs. (138 kilos).
For sale will be two of the shown Rocket Belts, two are used very little and two are brand new never used, the used ones have a corset made to my body mold and can be padded to adjust to another pilot, the new Rocket Belts have a universal fit corset that can be used by any pilot.
This is not a toy, these are the real and flying Rocket Belts or Jetpacks that you have seen in many movies, TV programs and shows.
These machines may be a great business doing shows and the machine can be paid in a few flights, this is your opportunity to be the next "Rocketman".
We can provide unlimited supply of the rocket fuel that is propulsion grade 90% hydrogen peroxide.
Flight time on this Rocket Belt is 30-32 seconds, the original Bell was 21 seconds only.
You can see a video of one of my rocket belts flown here http://youtu.be/aCyjWF37OGo
NO test flights of any kind, the machine is in perfect flying condition and you must train to fly with your own fuel and training rig that we can supervise and advise you how to fly it and train, we can show you step by step in our place how to set up, fill the tanks, charge the nitrogen tank and how to fly and maintain it.
For your first flights and for the training you need a tether rig with a cable that will hold you for safety, once you master the flight in the tether rig then you can start making your first free flights and continue with your training to be able to make public flights.
This machine doesn´t require any license or flight permit that we know and all the flights are low and slow most of them in stadiums and special events.

You don´t need to be a pilot to fly this machine, in fact it is better if you are not a pilot, but it will help if you ride a bicycle or motorcycle because the sideways motion control.
