Concepts from Future Past: 1979 Colani Sea Ranger

Flying Cars We Wish We Could Own

Flying Cars We Wish We Could Own
We’ve seen flying car concepts many times over the years – something it seems inventors have been trying to make a reality almost since the Wright Brothers flew at Kitty Hawk. With concept vehicles with folding wings that fit in the family garage or the personal helicopter that lands in the driveway, there is no lack of creativity or dedication in trying to make them a viable alternative.

Concepts from Future Past: 1970 Evinrude Rooney Lakester
What goes together better than dune buggies and boating? If you said, “peanut butter and chocolate,” then I’d agree, but a close second is the dune buggy and boat thing.
