... and the cost of being rear ended by coked out soccer mom in an Excursion is?????? How about flight characteristics into IMC. Lousy car and a worse plane. All this 50 years after Ford tried to sell us that idea. Made for some great shots in The Man with the Golden Gun however. It's the same with the Amphicar (the accidental submarine).

If I wanted a flying car, I would want one that actually worked and had some classic styling-like this one.

The cost to insure it would make it impracticle even if you could afford the purchase price.
