A: The original ramps, which were used for a touring auto stunt show some 30 or so years ago, and which were designed for a AMC Javelin, are stored in Orchard Park, NY at JM Productions. They haven't been protected from the harsh Buffalo weather and so are not in any usable form
- (Ray, my brother Stan and I were up in Buffalo last year at the 99th Birthday Bash for Bill Milliken. After the birthday bash, Ray, Stan, Bill Milliken and his son Doug Milliken all went to visit Jay Jr at the Orchard Park facility (Jay Sr was in Florida, we had an amusing conference call with him). Somewhere I have photos of the ramps with Ray & Bill and once i locate the photos i will post them up)
As far as what is involved in redesigning the stunt for a different vehicle:
- Back a few years ago we were contacted by the folks at TopGear as they wanted to see what would be involved in re-designing the stunt for a much smaller vehicle. We sent them a list of things which would be required to redesign the stunt, like measurements of the vehicle to be used weight distribution, moments of inertia, and other vehicle properties and didn't hear back. They apparently decided to wing it!
