In a new book about Area 51, an unnamed source claims the aliens found at Roswell were Russian pilots on a spy mission in a secret craft. What if they'd arrived in a car? What car could pass for an alien spacecraft?

When it comes to alien craft, there are two design schools of thought: The overly-elaborate baroque excesses, suggesting a some sort of cyb-organic construct, and the cleaner and more prevalent "flying saucer" style. Either way, if a 1980s-era Pontiac TransSport crash-landed in the desert in 1947, and a crew of suited Aliens/Russians were carried out on stretchers to a secret location for testing, I doubt anyone would question the story.
