So far, we've only been able to make the plastic body of the InViSiCar disappear.

The next phase will address the parts of the vehicle that are metal.

The production model will have a metal seat.

AP NEWS:

KrisDel™ Automotive have announced a cost-cutting initiative:

Rather than send their running chassis by transporter, they are reviving a method used successfully prior to 1980 by commercial vehicle manufacturers of driving the running chassis to the bodybuilders. This has resulted in a saving of 49.378234602% in transportation costs and an increase in the share price, based on projected increases in profit margins, of 2.49679290p in the last week.

KrisDel™ Automotive is a wholy owned subsidiary of KrisDel™ Industries, who brought the world the Time Machine, among many other uselessful household items. The founders of KrisDel™ were not available for comment when we called. One was too busy dealing with one of the loose ends of string theory; the other was inspecting his forestry estates.

I'm not sure if this vehicle should be on the road..... that left rear wheel looks very worn.

Ingenuity: The product of a small "Hands Off" government.

If they cared, they would run themselves $15,000,000,000,000 in debt to keep him safe, and he wouldn't have to ride around on that contraption. If he did, he would go to jail.

Now that the price of Mountain Dew® is less than the price of gasoline, my vehicle is getting much more respect.
