    I doubt the engine keeps running very well even with all the radios off. Did you get a good look at that heap? Judjing by the workmanship, I doubt the oil

      Judjing by the workmanship, I doubt the oil gets changed more than once a year.

      That is one of the most photographed cars in history, I'll bet!  It has been on Hamsexy a couple times now.  The piece de la resistance was the photos of the inside.
       
      I don't know how legal having all that stuff on the dash is.  Rumors are that he now has 44 antennas on the car.  And lest we forget the yellow flasher and the remote controlled spotlight on the roof.
       
      I was wondering the other day if, by coincedence, traffic was to come on all the radios at the same time so the alternator would have to keep up with draw from all the speakers.  Do you think the engine would keep running?
       
      Pictures can be uploaded to the Photos section of the group.  I don't think anyone has used this feature yet so let me know if you have any problems with it.

      Hi, I also attended Dayton Hamvention 2006, and I also documented that same red vehicle, with all the antennas. I shot a digital 8 segment, from several different vantage points, as I was standing in line, waiting for the shuttle bus. I would be glad to share the footage with you if you have any desire.

      All:

      In the June issue of Flashovers, the monthly newsletter for the Muskegon radio club I wrote the following paragraph.  Linda, AB8QH took the picture.  I'm sure the vehicle is the same one shown in the photographs from Mark's post.  This was part of a story on my first trip to Dayton this past May

      In the parking lot there are a collection of vehicles
      sporting the ubiquitous antenna, amateur radio license
      plate, and bumper sticker. One small car has
      sixteen antennas and Linda has the photographic
      proof. I resist the urge to wander over and steal an
      inconspicuous look inside at what most certainly is
      a wall-to-wall collection of radio hardware requiring
      a virtual pincushion of antenna hardware. This guy
      should be driving a bus to support all these antennas
      and not the tiny car he has hidden under there
      somewhere.
