My dad used to talk about hill climbing around here, the Pembina Hills around Miami, Manitoba. Yes, there is another Miami. Not so nice in the winter. He said he watched competitions with motorcycles and said the stuff they went up was unbelievable. Some with stretched frames and even nitro for fuel. That must have been 65 years or more ago. Men have been competing with engine powered machines for a long time it seems. Pretty much right from the begining. Continuing to digress here, but if you look back at some competition records from turn of the previous century, like land speed records, they ran some pretty impressive machines.
I hope they threw a tow strap on that jeep right before he started to roll backwards on that video clip.
