Yeah, I've seen both. The amphibious, I've seen in real life, and watched it launch and land both. It's kinda cool.

The Isetta was Steve Urkel's first car on the TV show Family Matters. His was white, I think.........

Hi ! I just thought I'd add my 2 cents worth.......... The amphibious car is an "Amphicar", built in the late '60's - I made the mistake of driving one, once........... The Isetta was BMW's first attempt at an urban vehicle.

Speaking of strange German cars, here's what the Messerschmitt aircraft factory made when demand for planes stopped.....
The model was part of a two-car kit, the other car being just the Isetta. (Planning to make a pick-up of that...) The kit is from Gunze Sangyo, and is quite good.
