Called "the convertible" or "the ultimate off road vehicle," a 1960 Taylor Aerocar appeared at the 2009 National Aviation Heritage Invitational. This event is sponsored by Rolls-Royce and runs in conjunction with the Reno Air Races.

One story I heard was of the grandson of the owner hoping to both get his driver's license and his pilot's license in this car, er', airplane someday.

Newsreel footage of the Aerocar can be seen here:
