Wow, that is impressive. I bet that took quite a bit of practice. Cool stuff.

I've had a LandCruiser on two wheels before and I didn't like it. I sure wouldn't want to next to it on the highway

Yup, except for the tire chaning Chitwood and his team did this for years, starting in the 50's, but in a controlled/track environment. Think about putting a 55 Chevy up on 2 wheels!

I've seen him put busses and other vehicles up on 2 wheels..sort of a lost art here in the US, but I guess the tire changing twist keeps it alive...Ain't nothing new under the sun.

I did think the tirre chaning was clever....

It's entertainment, no? I mean they're probably not changing the tires because they got a flat and Dennis Hopper rigged the car to explode if they drop back to two wheels to change it. The driver seems incredibly good at keeping the car at that angle, making them less idiotic than Evel Kneivel, or Harry Houdini, or the Wallendas, entertainers we covet.
