This book may sound like a work of science fiction, but it's all true. Cars designed to be flown and aircraft designed to be driven have been created surprisingly often, particularly in the USA. This handsome book covers the subject in depth for the first time, revealing the stories of many doomed ventures, supported by a wealth of intriguing photographs together with wonderful artwork from comics, popular science magazines and science-fiction novels.
