Lenox Blades Cut Car in Half

Apparently as part of Lenox's trade show demonstrations they've been cutting cars in half (more pictures here). From the looks of it, they're just cutting the roof and the stripped out floor of the car, not the doors or any of the exhaust system underneath. So in a functional sense, when you think about the amount of metal being cut, it's impressive, but not too surprising that a high-quality recip blade is up for the task. But from a showmanship perspective it's a different story. You've got to love the amount of effort involved just to make a cut that takes ninety seconds. Watching this makes us wonder if the $500 trade-in on the old Jeep is worth it, or if we should keep the vehicle around for blade testing purposes.

Here's a video...
