What will they think
of next - indeed! (above)

Bronze Blowtorch - the Turbine
Imagine a Car that...
Runs on almost any fuel including kerosene, heating oil, tequila, Chanel #5,
and Peanut Oil.
Has an engine that weighs about half as much as a conventional V-8, yet the
140 horsepower it delivers is equal in performance to a 200-hp piston engine.
Is self-cooled by its own air so you never have to worry about filling the radiator
(there isn't one).
Has only one spark plug and only about 1/5 as many moving parts as conventional
engines. Just think what that could mean in reduced maintenance, tune-up costs,
and repair bills.
Starts instantly, even in the coldest weather, and needs no warm up.
Now...who wouldn't want a Jet-Car!
