This 1954 Flying Car Can Be Yours – for Just $1.25 Million

Well, when I was a kid, this is not how I pictured flying cars in the year 2012, but it’s what we’ve got until the Transition is released. This is the 1954 Taylor Aerocar N-101D. It’s just one of only five that were made by the mid-century company. If you like what you see and think that this is a good way to commute, you can buy it for just $1.25 million.

Minneapolis resident and airplane collector Greg Herrick is the seller. The flying car is certified in the FAA’s Standard Airworthiness Category and when used as a street automobile, the wings fold back and can be towed behind the car. It takes about 10 minutes to get it ready to fly again.

Be aware, you can’t get parts for something like this and you have to have both plane and auto insurance which is expensive. Still, it’s totally worth it – if you’re a multimillionaire.
