 No but the same brand, as well as others. I forget the brand that was a
convertible out in the 50's and 60's but Volkswagen (Wolfsburg plant)
made a "schwimwagen" (spelled something like that) that could float and
run through the water. The beetle could stay afloat a little longer than
most cars due to the body style but the ducts for heat would let the
water through from the exhaust manifold heat exchangers anyway.

And now back to the topic at hand....
