Notes: Designed in the spirit of Ralph Steadman, Leadbelly is clearly the most evil vehicle in the fleet. With forward-swept fins on the tail, and aft-swept canards on the nose, all sanded to razor-sharp points, this baby was bound to draw blood at some point. Unfortunately, it was Pinsky himself who suffered from the ghastliness and madness of his own creation.
