Ed and Nancy
Ed and Nancy is a compact, imported from Japan, driven by a couple called Ed and Nancy. Ed is a sales rep. from Wall, South Dakota who has moved to New York with his social climbing wife, Nancy. In search of Elysian Fields they set up home at 47th and Broadway. The Scream Crusher is a factory reject from Detroit, which preys on the Ed and Nancys of this world, pinning them down, slowly devouring them and spitting out execrable pink velour leisure suits and low-grade plastics. The American Dream has gone horribly wrong. Liberty and the pursuit of happiness are merely items on the constitutional wish-list.
The Scream Crusher
General Motors designed the HE45 to imitate the most successful, adaptable format yet known to man – the insect. With a soundproof thorax containing multiple mesh grinders (hence the eponym “Scream Crusher”), very little of what the car preyed on could not be devoured. The thorax is connected to the abdomen by a heavy-duty rubber concertina gasket. The abdomen is effectively a giant digestive tract for processing pulverised material from the thorax. The entire cycle would last approximately 6 weeks. After discharging any residual waste the HE45 would resume it’s hunt.
