Then, during the third reconciliation of the last of the McKetrick supplicants, they chose a new form for him: that of a giant Slor! Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you!

    Doesn’t “won’t believe, or not” mean that you believe it?

    I thought the Noah Webster one was interesting.

    Basically, the laws of physics and economics got the prototypes trashed.

    Turbine engines are not suited to driving around town in stop and go traffic. They produce a lot of horsepower but not a lot of quickly available torque. The Chrysler Turbines were sluggish off the line, it would take a second or two to get moving after the accelerator pedal was pressed. Have you ever noticed when an airliner takes off – you hear a lot of noise but they don’t really accelerate hard until they are spooled up. Then they go like heck. Not great for the kind of driving most people do. A turbine engine would be suitable for a car that spent almost all of its time driving at steady high speeds on the freeway, not so much as a grocery-getter.

    They got poor fuel mileage and couldn’t meet the emissions standards that were coming along.

    What really killed them was that they were very expensive. Turbine engines are built to higher tolerances and with more expensive materials than the V8 lump under the hoods of most cars back then. No one could find a market for a car with slow off-the-line acceleration, poor mileage and a higher cost than comparable vehicles.

    By the way, prototype cars are often destroyed when the study is over, and it’s not the result of a nefarious corporate plot to deprive the consumer of superior products.

    After they’ve served their purpose they’re a liability You can’t sell them to the general public because they may not meet all current safety standards and what would they do for parts and maintenance down the road? A few are in museums or in the hands of collectors, but it’s just the part of the R & D process to get rid of test vehicles. You know how the first waffle out of the waffle iron is always inedible and you throw it away? Car companies view prototypes the same way.

    This comment will probably get flagged as obscene, because you used the word “wedding” and you what people do on their wedding night.

    Yup, that’s right – they EAT CAKE.

    I’ve never seen a joke on here I would consider obscene or dirty. Can you provide an example?

    A friend of mine has a job at the Tickle Me Elmo factory. He’s in Quality Control and at the end of the assembly line and he gives each Elmo a couple of test tickles before they put him in the box.
