Skycar Prototype

• The M400 Skycar is the world's first personal vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft, designed to elevate individual drivers above the headaches of commuting and the dangers of highway travel.
• In development since the 1960s, the Skycar has completed successful hovering flights, and its first manned, un-tethered flight is planned for Fall 2005.
• Developed by Moller International, the three-wheeled, folding-wing craft is designed to be as safe, affordable, and easy to use as an automobile.
• Travels at 350+ miles per hour and achieves an environmentally friendly 21 miles per gallon on alcohol, a cleaner fuel than gasoline.
• Because most auto emissions occur at idle or low speeds, the M400 will produced less pollution by burning fuel more completely.

Price $3,500,000.00

Dreamboat Limited-Edition Levitating Sculpture

• This mixed-media work of aluminum, magnets, and mahogany floats on the crest of an invisible magnetic wave, moving slightly with ambient air currents but never losing altitude—even when a hand is passed beneath it.
• The magnetic levitation system, invented by sculptor and installation artist Tom Shannon, utilizes safe, permanent magnets that never lose their strength, so the piece hovers indefinitely until it is physically moved.
• The sculpture is available in a 16-inch limited edition of 100 or a 6-foot limited edition of 8, each signed and numbered by Shannon.
• In Art in America, April 1999, scholar and curator Francis M. Naumann said, "It is not [Shannon's] intent to create an illusion for its own sake. Rather, he wants to heighten awareness of our own physical existence..."

"I did not vote for Obama but he is remarkable. In less than three weeks in office he has collected more than $150,000 in back taxes."

Do you want a ride in my Skycar when I receive it for Christmas?

Serious question.

I am going to a silent auction for charity where one of the donations is to fly as a passenger in a P-51 that will fly in a P-51 squadron formation.

I am interested in doing it just from a historical perspective. How dangerous would it be? Would you do it?

I doubt I could squeeze into what has to be very tight quarters, but would not hesitate. But then, as Ron White observed, you might be someone who actually has something to live for :D Here's a great site where you can watch a 30 minute WWII training film http://www.zenoswarbirdvideos.com/P-51.html

The $1.5M for the John concert isn't enough.
It would take at least $10M for me to sit through a couple hours of that squawking.

I liked that KiKi Dee one

If you can't get into a P-51, here is an alternate gift for you:

"MotoArt's B-25 Rear Elevator Desk is an extremely limited edition of twenty units only. There will be no more. This aircraft is famous for the Doolittle raid executed from the deck of the USS Hornet as retaliation for the attack on Pearl Harbor. The B-25 medium range bomber was deployed in all theaters during World War II. With only a handful of these flying today, time has witnessed almost complete extinction of nearly 6,500 of these historic planes.

The skeletal aluminum frame once covered by cloth is now powder coated with a metallic finish. The desk surface is 1/2" glass with a polished edge contouring the dimensions of this rare unit. Each piece is handcrafted to your height and color specifications". Only $15,000.
