This will probly end up in BTS but it sure can make your day brighter.
About 4 months agaio a few cubans set sail for florida In a Ford truck they did this by welding 55 gallon steal drums to the sides and putting a prop on the drive shaft .
Well now this gave more enterprizing guys an idea so they took a 50des taxie and converted it to flot . Wonder just how much in fairs this guy planed on collecting????

This isn't the first time Cubans have attempted this stunt, this is the second in my memory of Cubans converting cars into boats to sail to the US.

Coast Guard Sinks Taxi Cubans Took To Fla.
MIAMI-DADE COUNTY -- At least some of the Cubans in a converted 1949 Mercury taxi intercepted by the United States Coast Guard Wednesday have a chance to stay in the U.S., but a man who tried to save the taxi and put it in a museum has failed.

Thirteen people took a cab ride from Cuba to Florida, and officials said at least four of them, the Diaz family, have U.S. exit visas.

here's a similiar incident from Feb 2004
Cubans try floating vintage car to Florida

At least now I know it can be done and well as for the Cubans, I'm sure they will try it again.
