Volkswagen Beetle. Jet engine. Well, why not?

A gentleman with a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Stanford has created a street-legal Beetle with a jet engine stuffed in the back.

Best line from his erudite and fascinating discussion of this subject:

Jet keeps sucking the rose out of the bud vase on the dash!

And just wait till you see what he wants to do to his wife’s motor scooter.

I read a while ago about someone who fitted a Rolls-Royce engine to a car – possibly an old Rolls-Royce, but I’m not sure.

The engine originally came from a Spitfire, and the bonnet/hood had to be lengthened quite a bit to accommodate it… this was probably in the 1970s, so I don’t know if it would ever have made it onto the Web.
