The Ford Levacar Mach I

It's sixty years later. Where are our Levacars? From Wikipedia:

The Ford Mach I, also known as the Ford Levacar Mach I, is a concept car hovercraft developed by the Ford Motor Company in the 1950s. The Mach I was a single-seat automobile which rode on pressurized air, not wheels. Its name was inspired by the speed Mach 1, an aspiration speed not yet achieved by vehicles at the time.

If this thing could work on snow and ice, it would have been way more popular, especially on less-than-optimal roads like Montreal, Canada, and Kyiv, Ukraine.

Looks like a hovercraft, but where are the eels?
