Off-roading near Route 66

Don’t try this at home, kids.

This fellow decides to test his four-wheel drive jeep on the boulders and lava fields around Amboy Crater, just off Route 66 near Amboy, Calif.

If anyone needs to test-drive a new 4WD vehicle or check the performance of a new Mars Rover design, you could do a lot worse than this place.

Music is by Manhattan Transfer.

UPDATE: Swa Frantzen, owner of Historic66.com, noted that it’s actually a miniature remote-control vehicle, albeit “a very nice one.”
