But what about the hovercars we were promised?


Carlisle PA, Early eighties. A guy had a carton of these Chrysler Turbine promotional pamphlets. Though I was tempted to buy the whole box and corner the market, I decided carrying a heavy box of paper for a mile back to the van was out. So, for two bucks I bought just one.
It was truly a car of the jet age. Fifty five units were constructed and tested- but after a trial period all but nine were scrapped. And we never did get our gas turbine production cars, let alone the hovercars that should have been in every garage by now.
