Jesse James Makes a Flying Car

The Virginia-Pilot reports that Monster Garage host Jesse James flew his modified Panoz Esperante Friday. As the image by photographer Drew C. Wilson shows, the car actually lifted off the runway. The story says "James didn’t get liftoff on the first pass as he tried to get a feel for the craft and the runway. On the second try, just as he reached 80 mph, the wheels lifted about two feet off the pavement, and the craft soared for about 3 seconds and about 120 feet." I should have driven our family down to North Carolina to see this in person!
