      Curtiss-Wright Bee, Two Passenger Air-Car (1959) It was fairly maneuverable and could reach speeds up to 38 mph. It was not really capable of all-terrain operation and never caught on commercially.

      CAR, Johnson. We wanted a flying CAR, not a frickin boat--somebody did that already. Sea Plane? Remember? Great, you pissed yourself. Well, this has been lovely. I bid you GOOD DAY Sir.

      The Curtiss-Wright Air-Car, the "Bee" (1960) concept car, based on the 'Ground Effects Machine' GEM, (i.e. hovercraft) developed for the Army Transportation Research Command as an amphibious craft. The body by Studebaker-Packard concealed twin 180-hp Lycoming aircraft engines powered two enormous, vertical ducted fans generating a 15-inch cushion of air. Propulsion, steering and braking were controlled by variable louvers around the body at speeds of up to 38 mph over flat land or water
