This Mechanic Made An Amphibious Volvo
27 June 2018
Made with thick steel and hard plastics, Volvos are definitely tanks of the road. Now also boats, but this car can conquer water and land.
The Evolvo was created by a man who goes by the name Theon Parseghian.
During the day, he restores and repairs classic cars. In his free time, he works on his own amphibious creations.
While on land, the Volvo works just like a regular car. But on water, an outboard jet ski motor takes care of forward propulsion.
It had its doors welded shut, the windows removed and a large section of the roof cut out, in case it starts to take on water, you can get out faster than you can say lickety-split.
Theon bolted an '85 Brat engine where the rear seats would normally reside and hooked it up to a propellor. It looks like it rolled right out of Gothenberg ready to take to the lake.
On his personal Facebook page he describes himself as a homeschooled, self-employed inventor from King Ferry, New York
Is new project is way larger than Evolvo.
