Flying Cars Anyone? Fantasy or Reality?

So, I saw this link on Instapundit this afternoon. I thought flying cars were a thing of our imaginations, but it sounds like that’s not entirely true.

These flying car dreamers have struggles, no kidding.  But why have so many talented dreamers failed to make the flying car a reality? The answer: physics. Cars and airplanes operate in very different environments, so building a car that doubles as an airplane results in an inferior version of both. Well, that makes sense, but it hasn’t stopped the Pentagon from funding a flying Humvee program.
