Chrysler's Bronze Blowtorch - the Turbine

The display board text (above) reads:

Chrysler's Bronze Blowtorch - the Turbine
Imagine a Car that...
o Runs on almost any fuel including kerosene, heating oil, tequila, Chanel #5, and Peanut Oil.
o 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.
o Is self-cooled by its own air so you never have to worry about filling the radiator (there isn't one).
o 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.
o Starts instantly, even in the coldest weather, and needs no warm up.

Now...who wouldn't want a Jet-Car!
