Watch the floating car video above.

Sometimes people think they’re witnessing disaster at a Minnesota lake when they see a classic car plunge into the water. But then, the car doesn’t sink, it floats.

Minnesota has several collectors of Amphicars, quirky vehicles that are part car, part boat. They haven’t been made since the 1960s and there are just a few hundred still in use. But Minnesota’s lakes still attract dozens of them.

Rich Rosenberg of Minneapolis received one as a gift from his wife 27 years ago.

“This is the best place to have a car that drives in the water,” he said. “The Amphicar changed our lives.”
