The brainchild of Moulton Taylor, the Aerocar was an ultimately unsuccessful attempt to bring flight to the masses. Several designs were built and flown from the 40's to the 60's, but all suffered from the same problem. To keep the weight light enough to make it flyable, the engine was tiny, and unable to provide the car part of the vehicle with anywhere near satisfactory power to drive it on the road, and ever changing safety rules governing both civilian aircraft AND autos meant it was constantly trying to satisfy too many regulations and add too many safety features to ever be practical.

I recall seeing it on "101 Cars You Must Drive". The show said the owner used ALL the money on marketing and convincing people to buy them. But when people actually wanted one, he didn't have money to build them.
