Homemade Amphibious Car – What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

When talking about amphibious machines, it’s definitely an appealing concept. It would be pretty neat to be able to have a car that you could drive right up to the edge of the water and plop into the drink, not skipping a step as you transform yourself from a roadworthy automobile to a lake-worthy boat. While it does seem like quite the entertaining concept, practically, it doesn’t really make much sense and that’s why we haven’t seen too many of these things around as people have generally tended to not really have enough interest in the market to keep it going mainstream.

This time, however, we check out someone’s very own version of a homemade amphibious car. It looks like it all started out with a simple boat but thanks to a nifty retracting wheel setup and a power plant to keep the boat moving well on the road, the person behind this one is able to drive their boat all around town, even going so far as to hit the gas pump before sending it into the water and lifting the wheels up. From the way I take it, this wasn’t necessarily designed to be safe for any sort of highway use but you may be able to get the boat around without the help of a trailer, eliminating one step from the process.

If you follow the steps in the video down below, you’ll be able to get the full scope of what exactly something like this might look like as this man has really taken it upon himself to craft is very own amphibious machine. For something that he probably built in his garage with his own two hands and a couple of tools, we have to say that this thing isn’t that bad. Not having to worry about a trailer is definitely one big plus that this machine has it manages to get around on dry land just fine!
