It's a Bird, It's a Plane....

It's a car. Remember the dream cars post? Apparently, I was wrong about Hubby's dream vehicle. He corrected me and showed me this:





That's right. It's a car plane car-plane Transition. Real clever name, huh? If you are geeky like me and want all the specs, click here. I think it's a bit weird looking and it reminds me of an accordion. But wait. It appears to have a sunroof and looks like a VW Beetle. Hum.....maybe it's not so bad afterall.

Seriously, this things sounds neat but can you imagine the confusion talking to your insurance agent?
You: Yeah. I just bought a new car......er....with wings.
Agent: Well if it has wings, it's a bird or an airplane and we don't insure either. Call another company that insures airplanes.

You: I just bought a new airplane......er....that can drive down a street.
Agent: If you're driving it, it's a car and we don't insure those.
You: Uh.....

I'm excited. It's a 4-hour flight to Santa Fe, New Mexico in one of these things.

I need a loan. Got money?

I don't know how I feel about that car/plane thingy.
Is it expensive?
Does it really fly?
Oh geesh, I'm not that great at driving. I can only imagine how well I would do at flying.
Do you have to pass a flying drivers test?
Does the DMV offer those?
So many questions!
Alteast I got to ask mine FIRST!

@Tracy - Sounds like Dear Tracy has all the questions. ;-) It's expensive enough. It's about like buying a house in Texas.

Wait, does this mean that is not photo-shopped photo?

It is for real?

I hear a Diet Dr. Pepper calling my name!

Nope, no money here. What little bit we had is being used to buy our home. :-)

Pretty cool car, though!

ReformingGeek said...

@Quirky - Yep. It's for real.

@Jacki - Yep. You don't need another mortgage.

@The Professor - OK.

VE said...

Is that like one of those things John Denver went to his fiery death in? Just wondering...

ReformingGeek said...

@VE - Nope. That was a Longeasy. Guess it didn't go long and it wasn't so easy.
