Yep, it's the Getz, it was done in Queensland, and if you're interesting in science I recommend spending some time @ the site of the guy who made it. It makes for some good technical reading.

"all that guy has to do is get an alarm w/ xzibit saying "back up" " - LOL I remember that ep.

That is my photo. It is a 30 second exposure and the Tesla coil is running about 2-3kW. My son was apprehensive but safe.

Here is a view during setup.

Lots of other (better) pics on the site. This and my other pics have been on Digg, Hackaday and Fark etc and I have had about 50k hits in 3 weeks.

Yeah, a huge :thumbsup: for joining the site! :D

As you can see from my post "interesting?" LOL! I was pretty tired when I wrote that, so sorry for getting your state wrong.

Picture of the year IMHO.
