Default BONNEVILLE DISNEY ATTRACTION!

Well, I took the family to Disney for a vacation, and Epcot has an attraction called TEST TRACK. It'* an interactive thing that guides you through the development tests of a new vehicle, and at the end you get to ride in a "prototype" on a stretch of test track, testing the various safety features of the car. As you walk through, there are various sections and components of cars set up on display. A few are Bonneville.

This the first thing you see, a stripped down Bonneville on display:

This was a "running" 3800, but it really just was a battery wired to the cooling fan!
