The Aerocar was the first real flying car of any substance. Six models were made when it entered the public consciousness in 1949, though a full production run never happened. It took about five minutes for the wings and tail to be attached in order to complete the car-plane conversion. Once this was done the two passengers could enjoy speeds of up to 220km/h in the air. When they'd had enough of flying it was then just a matter of chucking the tail and wings in the accompanying trailer and driving off.
