Very cool! Funny how it went unnoticed for so long

Btw, why was this stuffed in Team USA ? I think this article/video has a braid enough appeal for GM where the "masses" will be able to view it

I guess because few had heard of Min or Townsend back then, so it probably seemed like there'd be little interest outside the US -- or even inside the US, apparently, since no one replied.
