The Future Was Here: 1984 Buick 10 Autocycle LiteStar

We were supposed to have flying cars by now.  Everyone promised it.  I've watched Blade Runner and Running Man many times (both were set in a 2019 future) and they showed all kinds of hovering and flying cars, but here I am and the closest thing is a LiteStar/Pulsar that was built in the 1980s.  If we could just convince these millennials to stop playing Fortnite and focus on engineering flying cars, I'd by floating around in the sky right now instead of hacking on a keyboard.  Find this 1984 Buick 10 Autocycle LiteStar offered for $22,500 in Gainesville, FL via hemmings.

  1. Um, I must have missed something: what makes this thing a Buick?

    1. Um, I don't think you missed anything. Buick because it has a motorcycle engine? lol
      I would want the side mount weapons to be operational. Then DD it in Austin traffic.

    Cute, bizarre, probably a hoot to drive — if there’s no traffic around or sun out to bake the occupants. Don’t know where the F16 reference comes from; that’s aT38 parked next to it.

  4. Gee it sure looks like a BD5, oh same designer.

    Take off all the jetfighter crap and it would be fun, but still, why Buick?

  5. They really made 346 of these?

  6. Wait, nobody is going to comment on the multiple Batman and Iron Man suits in the background? Or the fact that there's a life-size Silver Surfer back there? Or that there's A FREAKIN' BATMOBILE PARKED BEHIND THIS THING?! This LiteStar jet car thing is probably the least interesting piece in this whole warehouse.

  7. Excellent post. I used to be checking continuously this weblog and I am inspired! Extremely helpful info particularly the ultimate section :) I take care of such information a lot. I used to be looking for this certain info for a long time. Thank you and good luck. buy lgd
