After being told a jet powered car can run on anything that burns, the President of Mexico rode it running on tequila.
President of Mexico, Adolfo Mateos, came out to see the car when it arrived in Mexico in the 1950s and greet the Chrysler representative who had brought it. As the president heard the typical pitch about the various things the car would run on, he was curious. Would the car run on tequila? He offered to provide them the tequila if, in fact, the car could run on it.
