Default Tesladownunders Car Theft Protection

Worried about someone pinching your car? Try this.
A Tesla coil on top of a real performance machine (a Hyundai Getz).
I hired it overnight as I don't own a car.
Details here. This is a 31 second single exposure and is not photoshopped in any way.
My son, Michael, is quite safe in there even if he is a little unsure.

This follows from the related thread about the "Eye of Sauron" and the "Aura of Sauron"

Wow I've been a fan of TDU for some time now and this definitely one of the coolest things I've seen you guys do.

Just don't let the hire company see those images. They'd never let you near one of their cars ever again.

Gee, some of us have all the luck.

I don't know much about the whole tesla coil thing, but these posts are getting better and better. Was there any damage to the car from the arcs?
