Weird-looking cars are a dime a dozen. Far less common are weird-looking cars that can also fly AND have approval from the Federal Aviation Administration. Indeed, as far as we know, there's only one of those babies: The Terrafugia Transition. The private aircraft/funky-looking car has been in the news before. But the recent announcement that it's going into production sparked mega-searches on the Web. Almost immediately, online lookups for "terrafugia transition" and "terrafugia transition pictures" both, well, took off.

I read about this yesterday. Cost starts at about $200,000 and you need a 1/3 mile strip to take off and land. So, even though it's a first step to a flying car, it's still only a plane with wings that collapse. Also, it can only fly 450 lbs.
And to think about all the crazy damn people driving on the roads these days, do you really want them flying over you at a couple hundred miles an hour, texting someone while reading a paper and drinking their coffee?
