What about the 1940s auto body entirely made of hemp in a model car from Ford? That could have saved gazillions of barrels of oil as the hemp weighs less than metal. And what about Aircraft bodies as well?

I bet Obama and his merry band of geniuses has not thought of that as a solution either.

But could you smoke the whole thing before the cops caught up with you? Didn’t Cheech and Chong do this?

I expect the state to clamp down on this and try to stamp it out.

Yes, I don’t think they would allow just anyone who can afford it to enter their skies.

The landing looked to be the most difficult to sell to a potential buyer!

So can you drive one of these if you are on the No Fly List?

I’m not sure I like this. Most people aren’t even capable of driving responsibly these days…

Takes me back to my days of reading Popular Mechanics though.

“I’m not sure I like this. Most people aren’t even capable of driving responsibly these days…”

Sounds a lot like the same arguments used at the turn of the 19th century regarding automobiles. “I’m not sure I like this. Most people aren’t even capable of handling their horse these days…”

Actually, there have been several attempts at flying cars. I’ve seen a few recent shows that have highlighted the past attempts.

I can’t wait for the RV one, so that I can make my way out of this crumbling society.

I love this. And I heard it is only going to start at 200,000 which is way out of my personal range, but still not crazy. The govt will have to destroy this because frankly, with the asinine ‘security’ procedures at airports today, I can see ordinary people like me who aren’t rich but have to fly frequently, just throwing in together and getting one to share. Every year I drive 2800 miles round trip to see family because I simply refuse to put up with airport security any more. This will become a popular way to avoid the state if they don’t get a hold on it quickly.
