    I think I can yeah, my dad has an old VW Beetle and it's completely waterproof anyway so making it float wouldn't be too hard!!

    i`ve got an idea,lets think of a car and what we could do to make it float.

    All ideas must be original.

    e.g.Land Rover Freelander with roof and windsheilds cut off and an out board motor.

    I think a van is a good thing to use. The campervan was actually quite a good choice.

    If you really want a boad then how about the new Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead?? It's meant to look like a yacht anyway

    I took a video of the 'flying car' at the MPH show, hosted by Jeremy, Richard and James.

    They already have cars that double as boats. For $100,000 there is a sports car that drives directly into the water and can be used as a boat.
