Looks like a good option Toyota could have added when they had all those cars accelerating on their own or not being able to stop...

That's a airplane engine isn't it? How in the world do you hook a trans to that? Especially with it laying down.

Both of those thoughts crossed my mind. Then I remembered those old show cars from the 60s that didn't even have guts in the engines, probably still true today. It might have an angle drive box under there but if it gets driven at all, it's probably just a profile putt around the parking lot.
