Why do you suppose that is John? I would offer two possible reasons:
the Moller aircar makes so much noise as to be illegal with 1000 meters
of anything, and secondly it would need to devour fuel at such a prodigious
rate as to make it too expensive to operate for any practical purpose.

These are speculations only, based on my back of the envelope calcs.
If these are wrong, however, I definitely want an aircar. {8^D spike
