Here it is, over a decade into the 21st century, and we still don't have flying cars in our garages. Sure, the technology isn't there... I've heard all those excuses from The Man about why we haven't been allowed to have this kickass mode of travel and I don't buy it because the first flying car was made over sixty years ago!
This is the Taylor Aerocar. Only five of them were ever produced around 1949 and were never introduced into the public market. These bad boys could function as both a car and a plane (though, the mechanics of the transformation look a little clunky).
All right, world... the excuses are officially useless. Give me my flying car!
