Ride of the Future
Before we get into today's post--congratulations, Grady Houger! You've won the ebook offered in Friday's post, Blogophobia Conquered, by Laura Christianson & Jim Rubart. Please contact them through their blog, HeBlogsSheBlogs.com, to cash in.
Now--for those who are looking for a unique Christmas present, check out Terrafugia's Transition, a combination car and airplane. Keep the Transition in your garage, roll it out to take off, fly to your destination, then convert it to a car that travels at highway speeds.
The Transition is currently in a testing phase, with first deliveries scheduled for late 2009. Price--$194,000.
It uses super unleaded gas--way cheaper than aviation fuel. And it only burns 4.5 gallons an hour. Imagine the looks from folks when you roll this thing into your local Exxon station.
Okay, ya gotta learn how to fly first. Details, details.
Can't afford the thing? Not a private pilot? The Transition's still for you ... as a way cool vehicle in your next novel.
