“Yes, but I would probably want to buy a plane before it because we have less roads where I live.”

“I’d probably wait till it had been out for a while, when they worked out some of the defects. My boyfriend would want it right away, but I would be more hesitant.”

“I saw a thing on ‘60 Minutes’ about it, and the thing that came to me was I’m gonna be scared if a bunch of us are up there in the sky just flying around. I think we would have to come up with some kind of system.”

“I wouldn’t buy it because I think it’s a waste. There’s no point in it.”

I'll wait until they have one that can take off and land in traffic, on roads. I expect more for this kind of money.

In 1970 I had a '67 Firebird. Man, could I make that bird fly!! Then one day I took up a new career. Magician. Yup. Turned that Firebird into a telephone pole. Quite a trick really. Haven't done anything like that since, but that was enough. Now I let everyone else do the flying. No more flying cars for me.

I'd buy a 911 and save the rest of the dough for speeding tickets.

IMHO, the P-38 was the best looking fighter of the WW II era.

I have to go with the dornier 335 pfeil.....I am probably the best looking fighter of any era, but I am beautiful and obviously offspring from zeus.

I always thought that I would get the money from saving Brooke Shields from drowning but I would hire Van Halen to play my birthday party

Maybe it is a regular gig, like Cher in Vegas. Doesn't Rash Limberger get married every few months?

Before you buy cat litter, remember that the 400 pounds the craft will carry also has to include FUEL, at 6 pounds per gallon, 4-6 gallons per hour.

Good news. The immature tattletale's attempt has proven to be fruitless. I contacted the holder of the cartoon and they thanked me for my professionalism and said that as long as the original blog was pulled or I purchased the rights then no further action would be required. I'll have it spitefully put back up in better form by tomorrow morning.

I can't wait to get one so I could get into traffic and drive 15 mph slower than everyone with my down blinker on.

For $194,000 I could buy a new vette and a good, used airplane. That way I could have a good car and a good airplane, instead of this bastardized thing that probably flies and drives equally badly.

Or better yet, for $125,000 I could buy a good used airplane and rent a luxury car at every airport where I ever needed one for the rest of my life.

p>Bostonherald.com reporting FAA gives approval of flying car. They have seventy orders with deposit money paid to purchase the new fed approved car or plane?
