This was my high school fantasy, to ride into the school parking lot in one of these. You wouldn't be able to pick up any women...but you would be the coolest geek in the school. The sheer amount of extra credit in physics class would be enough.
For awhile I looked for parts, but didn't seem to have any luck. The photo is from an ad that ran in Popular Science in the late 60s. This project never got off the ground.
