I'm pretty sure I had this lego set.
if the question is "WTF?" the answer is always Fiero
That interior looks awfully nice for something that's gonna require routine bailing...
i think i prefer this one...[img]http://www.strangevehicles.com/images/content/146932.jpg[/img]
Oooh, that's pretty...
If James Bond were an American, he would have driven this, at some point...Stan (the *other* Stan...)
hmm... found a photo, but no info other than "Seattle"[img]http://www.seattleartcars.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/boatcar-425.jpg[/img]
In that photo, clearly the tail of a Beetle.
and another! - "Dave's Boatcar" - but what is it?[img]http://blog.nwautos.com/062710_DSC_9774_600x370.jpg[/img]

I'll take a wild guess and say it's built on an air cooled VW platform.
With that length etc. it must be rear engine , and the windscreen is too big for a VW unless it's a bus or a 411. So bus up front and beetle in the back?
Bionic, Matt & Tom -- You guys are correct, this thing is riding on a Volkswagen chassis -- and I'd share with you the craigslink (located in Houston asking $5k), but it expired!! Here is the other pic from the listing.[img]https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-oGcWDHsFp60/VtKO_ULxS5I/AAAAAAAAuGU/cFDmCv6rqkY/s1600/2.jpg[/img]
For the most righteous Nautical Pimp. Best way to get the Hoes out to the Seamen.
I am no expert, but it would seem the hull shape would have something of a lifting effect at highway speeds. I have seen enough speed boat races to know what happens when your ship does a wheelie at speed.
Andrew, good catch. But with the VW drivetrain, and all that extra weight, this thing isn't going to get above 25 mph. The other limiting factor is the length and questionable rigidity. So even if you put a smokin' hot engine in the back, chances are this thing would crack in half like the Titanic before it did a wheelie...So we're good.
