Hillbilly Hovercraft


Check your local listings.

Old science-fiction magazines once promised a Jetsons-style Hovercraft for everyone - but a redneck would prefer a "lounge chair hovercraft." The boys test out designs for their hovercraft and they settle on a design that hovers with a lawn-mower engine and a rocket attached to the back. They strap Travis into their homemade design and fire him off.
