interesting use of hydraulics - trabant changes into an el camino

Done as an artistic piece, this "trabantimino" extends itself via hydraulics to change from an east german trabant to an american muscle car. Of course, it carries a V8 engine -- no amount of transformer action can change a 26-hp trabant engine into a small block chevy. Unfortunately, the video doesn't really show all that much of the underlying technology.
