Once upon a time ice cream was delivered in trucks to happy buyers. Then the people drove to the ice cream shop with curbside service. But back in those wonder years, the dream was that one day we'd zip over to the soda fountain in flying cars.

Though people have never stopped trying to make a flying car, that dream never seemed to have taken off, even after decades have passed. To whit, the notion has become something of an item of nostalgia, and at the EAA AirVenture show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, a group of flying car enthusiasts gathered for some frozen treats and bygone dreams at a local retro malt shop. Follow the jump to watch the video footage.

      Some people are not capable of navigating in two dimensions (on the ground), adding a third (flying) would be a disaster.

      I will admit a flying car sounds cool. But realistically we have enough problems with cars on the roads, do you really want car problems over head?

      The moment I shelled out for a flying car, there'd be flying traffic jams.

      In my opinion, there is enough crap already falling from the sky. I don't need a flying car falling through my skylights. I remember seeing a flying car in a Popular Mechanics magazine as far back as 1958. Again, I give the flying car 4 days, and it's dead on the drawing board. Why did they never perfect the Chrystler Turbine Car Engine of the 60's ??? It runs on anything from nail polish or rubbing alcohol to scotch. Almost anything that burns.
