    Although he had a wheel chock when he started it this time, how does he start it if he is the only person there? As soon as he lets go of the pull start handle this thing is going to roll down the street.

    Did anyone see any brakes on that thing?

    It's brilliant. I want one of these little Car plane things.
    I have a 1972 Land Rover Series III Truck Cab/Pick-Up and a 1962 Land Rover Series 2a Carawagon Camper.

    Of course a prop driven land vehicle will never be as efficient as one with driven wheels, but it sure gains more attention.
