Houston, You Need a Ford HoverVan!

Right now, practically the entire city of Houston is under water thanks to torrential rains. Some are joking that in a few days, Texas will be no more as it will have been absorbed into the Gulf of Mexico.

Fears of a continued drought have been eliminated. But how does one travel around in the new Texas Waterworld? Our friends at Top Gear had the right solution; the HoverVan!

Built using a Ford Transit, which is now available for sale in the United States, the HoverVan is modern transportation for a modern age. In reality, it’s a bit of a farce, but the recent weather is a good excuse to dig into the Top Gear archive and share some videos!

I’m kind of surprised a Houston area Ford dealership hasn’t built one of these things yet to sell. We have the technology, and we have the will. C’mon Ford, get on it!

What do you think? Let us know in the forums!

Note: I do have friends who live in the Houston area, and I hope all residents of Houston stay safe during this serious weather.
