i wish my mb could fly

This week I have driven 4500 miles. I drove from NY to LA to Washington state and back to LA, then out to the desert and back to LA. And I still need to drive another 7 hours before the week is out. Someone please tell me, when are we getting flying cars? My poor MB needs less friction in its life. My friend sent me this this morning: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFfbk25gjs8 Are those real? If they’re out there, I need them.

Its the new GM cars. Didn't see the commercials where all the new GM cars are flying around?. It has something to do with the warranties.

Well the FAA got involved and now it looks like they may halt production at only 2500 made. They are only offering them as a lease at any rate. Another major problem was with the modified Chevy Suburban airborn refueling tanker. It was just too heavy to stay aloft so they are suggesting you only land at gas stations with a minimum of 600 ft runway space.

Stick a tampon in the exhaust.

If it can make people go swimming, horseback riding and roller skating there is no reason it can't make a car fly.

For less friction, try Astroglide.

I've seen that road. It's actually over by area 48.

It's like area 51, but with 3 fewer IQ points.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

I know what you mean. I have put about 4,000 miles on three different cars in the last month, 2.5k miles of it on a '04 SL500. Santa Fe to Sedona to Las Vegas to Yosemite to Pebble Beach to Napa to San Fran to Santa Fe to Dallas to Austin to Santa Fe to Dallas. Ugh. I am done now. Really.

PS One ticket, two warnings, best mph average was 110mph for 150 miles.

No... I haven't watched TV in months, been on the road. I thought it might be some student video project or something. Is this also from the commercials: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ufUzlrpPZE ?

The cars look like they are from the commercials not the backrounds or the people.
