Possible in Second Life: Leyat Propeller Cars

Leyat Propeller Car

This is just the kind of impractical yet endearingly retro design that would work well in Second Life as a scripted vehicle.

Before the world completely gave up on the notion of flying cars, manufacturer Leyat decided that we can fly without ever leaving the ground; all we need is an overpowered engine and a dangerously light chassis. Sporting an 8 horsepower radial plane engine and an over-sized wooden propeller, it took a while for Leyat to come up with a relatively safe design. Originally planned as a 3-wheeler, this idea was scrapped when the prototype crashed over, and over and over.
