Relieved that we had made it through this proof-of-concept flight, which was almost as far as the Wright Brothers' first attempt, I relax my neck enough to look over at Jay. "What do you think?" he says with a smile. "I think we should go around again," I say over the din of the unsilenced concept's interior. "No, about the Rally Fighter," he says with a searching look. "Oh. Fantastic," I reply, one more voice of approval in a chorus that will echo around the US, and then the world, every time someone else has their first ride or drive in a Local Motors car they helped design and build themselves.
