    I heard they sell kits for VW bugs that raise the exhaust above water level, which allows them to keep the engine running while floating. I've never seen or heard of anyone using it that way. I have seen a car floating once when it tried to cross a flooded wash in Arizona. I can't remember if it was a bug or not, but it floated pretty well too.
