I Want A Flying Car by Nofairatu by KeithEKimball I Want A Flying Car by Nofairatu by KeithEKimball
Hello, hello! My entry in DeviantArt's Retro Future T-Shirt Design Contest is here!

The challenge: To envision the future in a style from the earlier than the 1970's.

The fact: Countless movies, especially in the 1950's, promised I would be living on the moon and/or piloting a flying car by at least the year 2000.

What happened? :anger:

I want one too. I have old designs sitting around here for how I would build a flying car. I just remembered them while taking a look, and now I have to sit here and dig them ALL out because of this.

This shirt FTW. And did I mention I want a flying car? Are you kidding me? Wheels? They limit me to 2 dimensions where traffic builds up! And while doing triple digits down I-235 is fun, if I'm going to put my life in danger like that I at least want to touch the face of God while doing so.

Better yet, a flying suit, but that's a whole 'nother discussion.

Oh, man, I think you one-upped me with the flying suit. That would be even cooler. Either that or a car; two dimensions? That's so 20th century. Just think how much travel time we'd be able to save by going directly to where we want to go alone. Over mountains and buildings and such, I mean.

And thanks for your kind words and faving this silly design, my friend. :D

LOL Thank you! I'm glad to know so many people agree that these "cars with wheels" are so 20th century.

But seriously, your designs are pretty dang awesome. I think I like the "Hitchhiker" best but it was a tough choice.

I thought of that too...but the contest was strictly original stuff, not fan-art for obvious licensing issues.

I still want a lightcycle, however; I agree completely!
