Inventor Cleans Up with New Hoover Car

Budding inventor Jamie Prang hopes to clean up with his latest invention, the 'Hoover' car. The revolutionary new vehicle, which has taken Mr Prang over ten years to perfect, is both environmentally friendly and economical to run - good news for the environment and the motorist's pocket. We asked Mr Prang how he first came up with the idea.

"Erm, well, just one small correction: it's a hover car, not a 'Hoover' car," he told us.

Marvellous! Of course, the idea of a car that can clean up as it goes along is a novel one and it has been warmly welcomed by environmentalists. Does Mr Prang envisage this group as his primary market?

"What? No... Look, I think you've got the wrong end of the stick here. It's not a 'Hoover' car. I don't even know what a 'Hoover' car is?"

Excellent! But what of the average motorist? This vehicle represents a significant shift in general attitudes to transport. Does Mr Prang believe that there will be any difficulty in marketing a Hoover car to the man in the street?

"It's a hover car. A HOVER car!"

Wonderful! So, no fear that drivers will be put off by the need to keep changing dust filters or emptying bags every few hundred miles?

"What bags? This has nothing to do with vacuum cleaners. It's a hover car."

Fantastic! So it looks as though there will be a bright future for the Hoover car. Ultimately, of course, the market will decide, but there's certainly a good chance that in five years' time we'll all be driving one. Let's hope so, for Mr Prang's sake at least. It would certainly be most disappointing indeed if this invention was consigned to the dustbin of transport innovations, along with the vet-ski, the hiccup truck and the tripe-cycle.
