The Flying Car, seen around the Southern Aircraft Plant in Garland immediately after WWII, was a prototype called the Southern Roadable. With attached wings, tail and propeller, the 1800-pound vehicle could fly at up to 128 mph. The rudder control activated its clutch and brakes for highway driving. SAC was unable to meet development schedules, and the unit was returned to its designer in California.
