chumbucket - 2010-10-18 how to make a show look like some prophetic hope for tomorrow out of a scrap-paper collection of kids' responses to the question "wouldn't it be cool if...?"

By the late 80s the ads usually featured a much more streamlined model, but I suspect it never made it past the mockup stage so even those ads still show the tethered saucer as proof that CARS WILL FLY:
