For less than the price of a new ford focus

You could get something like this. http://www.ebay.com/itm/pzl-iskra-ts11-jet-fighter-trainer-/311347523042?forcerrptr=true&hash=item487dc22de2&item=311347523042
 
Sure it's Polish, sure it doesn't get great mileage, but it does cruise at over 370MPH.

    "Only needs simple reassembly and minor repair..."   What could possibly go wrong?

    I did some looking and then sadly some number crunching. Supposedly it burns JetA, and at cruise it uses around 120GPH. For nothing but the fuel it would cost me around $960 to fly to the coast from Utah. Each way.

    It is certainly cheaper than most Cessnas I have seen, but there is a reason for that. Oh well.
