Nissan Introduces Flying Car
Test run 'qualified success'
SANTA ANA - At an impromptu press conference held at 319 E 17th Street, Santa Ana, Nissan spokesman Rodney Scattergood called the initial test run "a qualified success."
"The test car performed remarkably well, considering the circumstances," Mr. Scattergood said. "The test driver and his assistant were fortunately wearing their seat belts and only had minor injuries. This is why Nissan always recommends wearing seat belts."
"Once the car is retrieved, Nissan can examine it and determine what went wrong. The car held up quite well and protected the occupants. Nissan designs its cars with passenger safety first."
When pressed, Mr. Scattergood said the test driver did not extend the wings in enough time, and the car only became partially airborne.
Mr. Scattergood then ended the press conference and walked over to where the Santa Ana Search and Rescue teams had lowered the car.
