You've got one day left to see Tow Mater, Lightning McQueen, and Finn McMissile lifesize models at the San Diego fair

They will be in San Diego one more day, June 12th, and then they will be in just 2 more cities.

It's a concept, not a working model, and not liklely to ever get off the ground in a useful way... a hoverbike

My guess is that it's never going to work and that the inventor-dreamer has realized that, and finally decided that he could go public, because it's better to have a little publicity for a near miss, than no publicity for a wipeout no one ever hears about

Found on but the guys website is
