Anyone else thinking Ship of Theseus here? If the thing gets completely rebuilt from scratch, is it really the first TIV anymore?
Never have tbh. Interesting thought, but I still don't. End of the day, the vehicle is just getting an interior remodeling (which I assume simply means new seats (Clayton did say so himself in his video for the driver's seat since he's kind of a hefty guy), possibly in a different arrangement compared to before), new anchors, ditching the big black door at the back which wasn't there when it was originally built, a new paint job and a new engine. I'd say it's mostly still the same, especially if the soul of the vehicle is still there, which, as far as I'm concerned, it is.Anyone else thinking Ship of Theseus here?

He's still making films. Last I heard, he's working on three new projects: "Firefighters", "Saving our Seas", and "Surf or Die", the titles of which all should be pretty self-explanatory, but I'll leave a link to where I saw this. Sean Casey | Tourism VictoriaAnyone know whatever happened to Sean? All of his social media stopped in 2018, and we haven't heard anything since TIV 2 was purchased... and how did this whole scavenger hunt come to be? Why not sell TIV 1 as well?
So you're the Warren that Phil linked on his website. That's cool.Either way, they can withstand very high winds until the aerodynamic downforces are disrupted by flying debris (e.g., telephone poles, other vehicles or building materials) and the vehicle / occupants are hurled away. Using them for hail protection, against weak landspouts, as a last resort or for drama they are great, but not for actually trying to penetrate a violent tornado. I think it's important people realize this -- it's not safe to ride out a tornado in a vehicle. When Phil Henry built the first TIV in the mid-90's, we discussed this at great length, to avoid being over confident.
Hi, yes.So you're the Warren that Phil linked on his website. That's cool.
I had no idea that there was a TIV built in the 90s. I looked on his site (like I originally said) and it mentioned how he built a "storm chase pursuit vehicle" for the May 1994 edition of the Car and Driver magazine. Never saw the actual article, but I did see a lot of pictures on his site of some Hummer truck that he and his wife were posing with. Was that it?
