It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's a...Car!

OK, so there's nothing really 'biological' about this story... but DUDE - I want one.

After years of waiting, we may just get the first flying car released in 2009 by Terrafigia, Inc.

The Transition is really a plane that you can use on the road, not a 'flying car'. Gregory Mone from Pop Sci even got to sit in the barely-under $200K vehicle, which he describes as "a single-engine, rear-propeller airplane that just happens to be street-legal." As if the fact that it can fly isn't cool enough, it also runs on premium gasoline - no jet fuel required.

Can we say the awesomest conspicuous consumption EVER? Now I just need to make enough to afford one...
