1937: The first successful flying car, Waldo Waterman's Arrowbile, flies for the first time. The high-wing monoplane, with detachable wings and powered by a Studebaker engine, could reach a top air-speed of 120 miles per hour and 70 mph on a highway. A total of five Arrowbiles were eventually built.
