    This was outside the front door a week or so ago here in KS. I was running to save the A-liner. Kinda neat but scary.

    Holy cow, Hope you had your wind straps down. I don't think any of the kits, factory or aftermarket would help in that. It would be worst than Amana National Rally.

    Went up about a mile from the house and back down 2 miles east and took out more farm homes. Someone was on our side this day.

    as a kid had one of those go through my town we watch it from the house destroying the farms the it moved towords us. thanks it went back up before it hit our house but came back down on the other sie of town and did some big damage. here is the info on it i lived next to the collage.

    May 29,1982
    The Marion, Illinois tornado touched down near Carterville, Illinois at 3:00 p.m. resulting in damage to a subdivision near John A. Logan College. The tornado then tracked into downtown Carterville then tracked southeast into Crainville, Illinois, after which it caused moderate damage to the area surrounding Williamson County Regional Airport.[6] At 3:16 p.m. the tornado either formed a new funnel or changed course as it tracked into the west side of Marion along Illinois Route 13 causing extensive damage throughout the city. During this time the tornado was observed as a multiple-vortex tornado with up to three smaller tornadoes swirling around the main tornado. The tornado struck a car along Interstate 57, causing it to explode. By 3:30 p.m. the tornado had exited the city and dissipated near Illinois Route 166. The tornado had destroyed the Shawnee Village Apartment Complex and severely damaged three shopping centers. The tornado heavily damaged the area surrounding the Interstate 57 and Illinois Route 13 interchange including the Marion Ford dealership. The tornado also damaged two schools, 648 homes, and 52 businesses. The tornado caused 10 deaths, 181 injuries, and left in excess of 1,000 people homeless.

    I remebering seeing full size cars in trees
