|Test for Good Drivers.
Eighteen players, who must be licensed motorists, compete in each game (two
games go on simultaneously). They "drive" from the Pacific to the Atlantic
Coast, compensating for road conditions they see flashed on closed-circuit
television screens in front of tem. As each driver steers, brakes and
accelerates, an electronic device keeps a running total of the amount of
gasoline he would be burning if he were driving a real car. At the end of
the ride, the driver with the best miles-per-gallon record of the 18
entrants receives a certificate.
A young driver attempts his
luck at the game, which used video monitors to display the course.
He doesn't look to be old enough to have a license, but the requirement to
have one was probably only there to help limit players to those most likely
to buy Mobil gas. Perhaps it was a slow day and he got lucky in being picked
to play. (CD #9 Set 48 #38)
