Relaxing Holiday Car

“My car’s job is to help you relax, dance and cool-down. It has a pool on the car roof. That helps you relax and sing at the same time. I also have another microphone it also helps you relax at the same time but you sit on an invisible bench. My car also has some more! I have a dump this is how it works... you put things in a bin like banana-peels, empty oil bottles, apple cores and batteries. It will go in to the dump and then into the dump-truck. I have got a disco-room. It has a mirror ball. It has indigo, green and red on it. In the ball room I have a microphone in front of the music-player. You know what I wrote about the relaxing, singing, sitting thing? Well that attaches to the microphone and you can hear their voices from the microphone! How fantastic and relaxing is that? I lastly in my car I have a beginners-pool. It has warm water in there. The warm water travels to the big pool. I also have a background. The background is fire-works popping up in the sky and the truck on holiday.”

Lightweight and Fireproof Car

“My dream car is designed to help people in preventing and handling bushfire, ecofriendly. The materials used to extinguish the fire is made of carbon dioxide from polluting sources of fire that transformed into foam. The car is designed lightweight and fireproof, so it can get into the bush in the affected area. It also capable of running on land and air. The more people own this car, the more humans, animals and bushfires are saved from fire especially in summer.”
