bmanafort ,

I too wanted to know what boat that was...maybe if all the guys are done joking they can really tell us. yes I know some of the scenes are beyond what you would do to a boat..but I still want to know what it is . and where to find one, and if Matthew comes with it that is a plus

I was serious, I read somwhere that they took a scarab and made it up to look special. Same as hulk hogans boat in whatever movie that was.

lemme guess you really dont think Herbie the love bug beat a race car do ya?

You have got to be kidding I hate punch buggies.... and I really want to know what type of boat that is... I think it was a cool older boat. with or with out Matthew. I like the lines and over all size of the boat I am guessing very late 80's. someone told me it might be a baja force but I am not so sure.
