For My Next Birthday. . . .

'Flying car' goes to market - Discovery.com - MSNBC.com: "The aptly named Transition takes a stab at bridging the gap between automobiles and airplanes. Some people call it a flying car. The company designing and selling the vehicle prefers the term 'roadable aircraft.'

Either way, it boils down to this: You sit down behind the steering wheel, drive to the runway, unfold two wings and take off. You can fly 500 miles on a tank of gas — regular unleaded —and when you land, you simply fold up the wings and drive where you want to go. At the end of the day, you fly back, drive home and park inside your garage."

All the previous stabs at this have failed. What would make this one successful?

I'd just fly all over the countryside trying to save 2 cents per gallon of gas.
