Flying Car Prototypes Grounded After Crash Near School

Did they put the school on Lockdown, by any chance?

Or pull every LEO in the County and have them hover over them with machine-guns whilst goose-stepping the kids home?

The Moller SkyCar is the one I'd like to see make mass production. Four thrust-directable motors on pylons, fly by wire, no runway, etc.

Totalitarian Policework comments aside, you guys DID catch that part about the car CRASHING, right?

I like those Amphicars from the '60's, in fact I saw one the other day all restored in appropriate swimming pool green. I always thought it was a pretty cool idea. I don't do flying though, it's not natural...

Floating cars aren't natural either.

There was a club out here for a while. They used to take them into a local lake.

We've got a tour bus out here now that takes people around San Diego and then drives right down the boat ramp into the water. It's funny to see the thing cruising around town with propellers hanging off the back.

I went to small resort in Michigan called Ludlow's Island. They picked me up in town in a little convertible. We drove out of town to the edge of a lake, and then right down the boat ramp into the drink. I about **** myself...of course it was an Amphicar. It was the high point if the trip.

We were visiting reletives in Thunder Bay Ontario when I was a kid and some guy had a stand with a couple of them, He'd give you a ride around the park and out onto the lake for a buck or something, I never got a ride but me and my cousins and every other little kid used to paddle along on air matteress's trying to keep up them.
