"Thou hast made us very happy, Brother Ford."

Deerborne, MI-- Ford Motor Company unveiled plans for its highly anticipated 2006 model "Equis LX," a vehicle that may very well revolutionize the automotive industry.

"It's really a very simply design," states Ford CEO William Ford. "I don't know why no one's thought of this before."

Unfortunately for consumers, Ford isn't allowing photographs of the concept vehicle at this time, so as not to give his competition the heads up. However, Mr. Ford went into great detail describing the new vehicle.

"Well," explained Ford, great-grandson of the one and only Henry Ford, "currently there are plans to offer two basic models, the single horsepower and the double horsepower. But don't worry, we have not ruled out the development of six, or even eight horsepower vehicles to accommodate soccer moms, and whatnot."

The revolutionary vehicle incorporates a large, wheeled apparatus with a stand-alone engine. The engines come in a variety of colors, from light brown to dark brown, with the occasional black, white or grey.

Unlike traditional vehicle engines, Ford's new engine will be very environmentally friendly. Not only is the exhaust completely recyclable, but instead of traditional, non-renewable fuels like oil and gasoline, it uses completely organic, renewable fuels such as common grass.

Each engine has a projected life span of 15-25 years, with proper maintenance, including yearly trips to a certified Ford mechanic specializing in the Equis engine.

The vehicle will be test-released in a small area of Pennsylvania late this year and is expected to hit the market early next year.
