Charles, Two Lane Blacktop is a bit of a cult film from 1971
but when you have the singer James Taylor as the driver of a '55 Chevy street rod and Dennis Wilson (the drummer of the Beach Boys) as his mechanic, and they are racing a 1970 GTO across the United States for pink slips, you've got yourself a car movie! :)
Had two close friends with GTO's. One still has his..... a '67 GTO ragtop, with a scraped out Chevy 427 & four speed. Dark blue metallic w/ white interior & ragtop. The other was a 1970 JUDGE in orange..... That one is long since departed by accident! The other one is relegated to "show-duty" only.....
Interesting link, Nancy. I'm not sure the Flintstones car is completely fictional, however. Many years ago, I owned a '65 Chevy Bel Air with a rusted-out floor in the back. I could have put my feet through it and pushed it forward like Fred Fintstone.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
