  • Description

    Rowland Emett, one of Britain's most famous cartoonists and strangest inventors, has come up with his own solution to the problem of the motor car.

    Emett, who believes that everything invented since the days of Queen Victoria has been lacking in grace and charm, calls his motor 'the Borg-Warner Vintage Car of the Future'.

    Vintage it certainly is, with such 'optional extras' as 'nostalgia old cut-glass crystal fog-lamp-decanters' and 'headlamp chandeliers'.

    But the vehicle can also claim to incorporate some futuristic aspects within its design. What other model in production, or even on the drawing boards of the world's largest and most powerful motor companies, can claim the 'revolutionary anti-pollution unit or facilities which provide a built-in countryside which travels with the auto wherever it goes?
    Britain is accustomed to such surrealistic inventions from Emett, but the rest of the world may find the production of this renegade inventor more baffling.

    Whatever the case, it's unlikely, that, in Britain or elsewhere, the Borg-Warner Vintage Car of the Future will be in showrooms for quite a long time to come.
