Decades ago, there was a lot of pressure on the cars of the future. Would they go 1,000 mph? Get 1,000 mpg? Would they fly? Didn't quite work out that way, did it? What car would you take back to the past to freak everyone out?

A Ford F-450 4x4 crew-cab dually King Ranch. "Wait, what?" They'd say. "A $65,000 pickup truck with an interior like Caesar's Palace? So what year did the apocalypse happen, anyway?"
