Today Woburn, Mass. - based Terrafugia Inc. informed the world that their prototype flying car made it off the ground and landed again. The Transition has two wings, four wheels and two seats and the wings fold up alongside the body so you can legally drive on the street. Last month it flew at 1400 feet and stayed in the air for 8 minutes.
At least 100 folks world wide have plunked down the $10,000 deposit to get their hands on one of these.
Don't get to excited. It is no help in rush hour traffic, it still needs a runway.
I'd show you a picture but I can't seem to get the MAC to save on and post it to my blog.
So I am reminded of a song about driving (actually heard it today on the way home). It is by the Playmates and if you can remember them and the song, well lets just say you are of a certain age.......
Get me out of second gear......
