BLURB

I want to go where no man has gone before, but in a car. I want to cross oceans with this car: a black limousine, a classic, with my pride attached to the front. I want to travel across ALL terrains and wind up in Alaska or Antarctica. I want to run over Santa Claus with a smile because if my car could fly I'd deliver presents wrapped in red and tied with yellow ribbon to all the good little boys and girls. I want to experience what futurists believe will happen; I want to fly in this car. Up in the clouds with the planes the birds wouldn't be able to touch or crap on me and this car.  We'd be like Gods me and this car and we'd soar until we reached that illuminating white ball of rock. And we plant our Pride right there in the soil. Right there. And continue going even if we ran out of gas. [Jak Mussington]
