This Amphibious Tank-Yacht Might Save Your Life One Day

I'm all for a local success story, so this is pretty big. Gibbs Amphitrucks, a small manufacturer in Auburn Hills, is partnering with a Singaporean manufacturer to mass-produce Humdingas, a half-car, half-boat used for emergency transport and disaster relief. But they look amazing, and we can't wait to drive one for… » 2/13/14 3:51pm 2/13/14 3:51pm

The Time A Guy And His Wife Sailed Across The Ocean In An Amphibious Jeep

They had spent 14 days in darkness. Late on the morning of the 15th day, December 2, 1950, light finally peeked through a crack in the curtain that hung over the passenger-side window. Ben lifted the curtain and looked outside. The sky was blue, and the sun, as big as a dinner plate, shone brightly. The storm clouds… » 12/26/12 12:00pm 12/26/12 12:00pm

The Corphibian WIll Help You Survive In Style

This Corvair isn't Jesus, but it will walk on water. The appropriately named Corphibian isn't the genius one-off creation of some boating Corvair lover, but rather an actual prototype produced by some long forgotten boatmaker hoping the loadside amphibian would be a hit in the aftermarket. As you can imagine, this… » 2/22/08 2:30pm 2/22/08 2:30pm

Detroit Auto Show: Amphibious Tang Hua Detroit Fish

We practiced our love with the Tang Hua Book of Songs earlier, and now for the less phallic, more idiosyncratic Tang Hua Detroit Fish. "Detroit Fish" would be an odd name for a car if it weren't for the fact that this fish can evidently swim. Yes indeed, this is the only amphibious crossover at the Detroit Auto Show.… » 1/15/08 1:15pm 1/15/08 1:15pm
