Currently on auction at Bring A Trailer, this extremely modified 1973 VW Bug is the perfect vehicle for riding around town while pretending you're vacationing on a lake somewhere. Before jumping into the bidding pool you need to note that this vehicle is NOT actually seaworthy/waterproof or otherwise intended to go in the water. But in terms of sheer execution it is a pretty impressive build.
The car has a Facebook page with the backstory, more photos and a video of the build process. The award for Most Awesome Dad Of All Time goes to the owner who apparently built it for his daughter, who thought it would be cool to have a carboat like the one in Sponge Bob. I mean, of course that would be cool. Do you even have to state that? Even better is that the donor Bug is the car Kevin Bacon drove in Footloose. So many pop culture references here!
