"I've come across more and more people who've actually tried reading science fiction and can't make it make sense."
- Samuel R. Delany

Aerocar  
  A personal flying vehicle.  

This is (as far as I know) the first use of the word "aerocar."

He was now developing the film in his room at the Flash office, and the aerocar which had brought him was still outside the large bay window swinging gently to and fro at its moorings in the summer breeze.
From The Abduction of Alexandra Seine, by Fred C. Smale.
Published by Not Known in 1900
