Yes, you read it right.

A guy has created the worlds first alien-proof car, and says it's the first of a line of vehicles designed to combat an alien invasion...

WowHuh
He’d be great taking that on a camp site, everybody could have a choice of over 20,000 TV satellite stations, whilst the rest of the world is under Alien attack.LOL

I actually owned a yugo very aptly named most of the time I wanted to go somewhere it would say yugo I'm staying here. Bloody thing you could wind it over till the battery was flat and it wouldn't even fire up, charge the battery and it would start first turn of the key.
Ken's the name modeling's the game.

Donkeys years ago, I had an old Triumph Spitfire.
It would NEVER start if I used the ignition key.
If I used a screwdriver or thin blade, and once, even a piece of a lolly-stick, it would start on the first turn...LOL

BigGrin Should have gone with the Herald, mate. Ok didn’t have the glamour of the Spitfire, but was a damn site more reliable ThumpUp My old dad bought me one as a first car when I was 14. It would spend all winter under a tarp, but still started first turn of the key come spring-time
Ahh the memories BigGrin

Clearly this chap has not seen the Hitch Hickers guide or he would know that Aliens are dolphins with limited use of a car. Although i did see an episode of the great egg race where a Robin reliant got turned upside down and used as a boat BigGrin
