    but it's not a kit, and it costs 100x as much, and it goes in the water. :what: :dunno: :screwy:

    TERROR-Wind!

    I saw one at a local RV dealership just down the street from me about 6 months ago--I saw a huge banner on it that said "Amphibious!" !!..Saw a similar one on the discovery channel someone built too--the owner said everone whips out the cell phone and dials 9-1-1 every time he drives it into the water! :haha: :haha: ...

    I think it would be cool to have a combo motorhome/party barge!!...if your stuck at a bridge crossing,waiting for the drawbrige to close--just drive right into the water!!..no waiting!...brings a whole new meaning to "Gone Fishing!"..

    wonder if you need to register it as BOTH a motorhome AND a boat??...at any rate,I dont have 850,000 to 1.2 million to buy one,so I dont think I'll have to worry about that.. :p: :crazy:

    Did anyone take a look at the HydraSpyder? Its an amphibious sports car! It has a 502 ci bb, pushing out 502 hp!! It also has a tremec 6 speed transmission. The only scary thing is that its front wheel drive. I dont know how it would be to drive a car with 502 hp and front wheel drive. :eek1:
    Anywyas...check it out here:
