    That would be OK in Sydney, with all of that wonderful water around, Paul. Melbourne, unfortunately, only has a large drain and a big flat boring pond like an overgrown version of Botany Bay.

    Here you need one of <a href="http://www.museumofflight.org/collections/craftdisplay.html?ID=3" target="_blank">THESE!</a> or, perhaps, <a href="http://www.artcars.com/Aerocar/cover.html" target="_blank">this.</a>

    Yes - but I heard on the ABC last night that the thing will cost about $370,000 eek! eek!

    I could get the best DS Decap in the world plus a very nice restored wooden speed boat for that!!

    And probably something to fly around in too Rod!!

    It Does look like a cool idea though.

    Not sure about the strength of folding wheels though

    That Aerocar is kinda cool, but imagine the accidents if everyone had one!
    I love the Gibbs Aquada!!! That would be SO much fun! A friend of my father had a VW Beetle with props under the bumper and good water seals which would float. It was slow though. This would be fantastic!
