Today In History: Dune buggies on the moon!

Apollo 15 astronauts took the first lunar joyride on this date in 1971. You'd think that a car with a $950,000 window sticker would go faster than 8 mph. (I did like the ingenious duct tape repairs, though...)

No windshield, no spare tire, no radio, and no air conditioning.

Not even cupholders.

Man, NASA got gyped.

And some nutcases say it never left earth, no need for duct tape then I say. :-)
