I used to dream of this type of vehicle as a kid,
what they SHOULD be working on is an alternative to gasoline/petrol engine, right?

I remember my father's Mechanics' Illustrated magazines back in the early 70's with the flying cars. Really seemed like something of the very near future. Much like today...

I'd have an electric car when they give you a decent range say 400 miles-500 miles at a decent cruising speed say 60 MPH-70 MPH on a charge of say 2 hour-3 hours
